When I tried to print an article from Writer Help, I got this error. There are a few online questions about this error but none have been answered. Running Windows 10, LibreOffice version (x64). I have not knowingly made any changes to the installation.

I see the error message, if I start LibreOffice with parameter -env:UserInstallation. Do you use any parameter when starting LibreOffice?

This error message comes from the ModuleManager, see OpenGrok.

It looks like it tries to identify the Help window as a separate Office module, but the ModuleManager has no element for it.

Regina, Thanks for weighing in. I don't start LibreOffice with any parameter. Librebel, Would you mind providing an English translation of what this means and what can be done about it? Thanks.

Pardon me, my previous comment is a list of all elements that are supported by the

As you can see there is no element listed for the Help component. It's probably not any information that you can use now to solve your problem, just trying to find out what could be the cause..

My case is in now in @catbill: Please specify your operating system, the exact LO version (see Help>About) and whether you have made any differences compared to the default installation. You can add these to your original question.

Thanks, Librebel and Regina. I have added installation information to the question.

Does anyone have a solution to this problem in case it happens again?

Please try printing from the context menu of the help window. That seems to be more reliable than the button.
