I installed libre office onto my windows 10 computer with 64 bit. It appears to have installed but when I attempt to open it it's just a blank white box and then times out. I have uninstalled and reinstalled three times. I also tried an older version of Libreoffice with the same results. Running as administrator did not help. Any ideas?

You may try to refresh the profile or disable OpenGL by running Libreoffice with --safe-mode from the command line.

Example (type the following in the command line):

"C:\Program Files\Libreoffice\program\soffice" --safe-mode

In my case, I disabled OpenGL and it worked.

Make sure the file protection/ransomware part of your firewall is not blocking it. That's the only thing I can think of off the top of my head.
