I've made a fresh install of the last LibreOffice 6.0.3 executable. Upon launching the program (via its shortcut or via any .exe that can be found in C:\Program Files\LibreOffice\program...), the program doesn't run and I keep getting following message: “The entry point of the procedure _initialize_onexit_table couldn’t be found in the Dynamic Links Library C:\Program Files\LibreOffice\swriter.exe” (translated from French by me).

Installed and uninstalled many times, so it's replicable on my system (Win 8.1, x86, Asus T100 notebook; older versions until LibO 5.x run trouble free).

Any clue?

No idea, unless perhaps your download got corrupted. Try downloading the installer again. If you can verify the checksums, that could be helpful as well, although I don't immediately see where to find them. For me, 6.0.3 runs on Windows without a problem. According to the LO download site, 6.0.3 is for early adopters only. It sounds like you may need to stick with 5.x for now until 6.x gets more stable.

Well, I'd really like to get rid of buggy LO 5... BTW, the mentioned problem is common to all LO 6.x versions (beta included), as I tested them (and again: LO 5.x is unaffected).

Which version of Windows do you have?

My primary system is Win10 Pro x64. Also, installed 6.0.3 on Linux Mint. And I have two machines which were 8.1 but upgraded to Win10. So I can no longer test on 8.1.

OK, thanks! Probably some incompatibilty with Win 8.1, then (apparently, some DLLs are missing)... Any DLL specialist out there?
