Since updating Libre Office every time I open Libre Office I get a soffice.bin - Application Error, unable to start correctly (0xc0000142). How can I get rid of this error? Thanks! Stephanie

I get it too with LibreOffice when I try to open a ODT file the first time. Doesn't happen thereafter until the PC is rebooted.

I ran into this problem. When I opened Task Manager (Win 10), I found that LO was still running. I stopped the process and then LO started correctly. Must have exited LO incorrectly previously.

Interesting. I just opened my Task Manager (Win 10) and Libre Office was not running. I then opened a Libre Office document and the problem didn't pop up, but Libre Office showed up on the Task Manager. I didn't get the error this time, and I didn't do anything. I will try this if I get the error again. Thanks.

Same problem. However, after clean re-boot, still got the error. Libre not running in background or upon startup.

Re-opening after error works just fine.
