I just installed the latest Libreoffice on my Windows 7 64 machine. I installed Draw only. Neither the soffice.exe, nor the sdraw.exe start up. There is no error message. If I open the task manager, I see the following processes for about 1 second and then they disappear without displaying any errors:

sdraw.exe, shstat.exe, soffice.bin, soffice.exe

I've performed an installation repair to no avail.

Thanks for any help.

Edit: I installed the other programs in the Libreoffice package and now I can start Draw (and the others as well). There might be an issue with the installer itself if the Draw dependencies are only installed if the entire Libreoffice suite is installed...

This is weird. My friend have same problem as well. I just push the power button until the laptop turned off, and restart. I didn't do anything other than that, and LO run without any problem. Other way, try to log out and re-login.
