After the latest uppgrade of Windows 10 Swedish version, Libre Office doesn't work. I got this message: Det går inte att starta programmet (The program failed to start). unexpected underlying Registry::open/create() = 6 I've also tried to uninstall de latest version and install the previous, but the problem is still there. All my other programs is fully functional.

Thanks for your input but it still doesn't work. This is the files I have in PackageRegistryBackend/common.rdb: backenddb.xml (1kB) common.rdb (15 kB) common_.rdb (15 kB) unorc (1 kB) Windows_x86.rdb (3 kB) Windows_x86_.rdb (3 kB) Windows_x86rc (1 kB) Does it look like it should? Can I do something to correct the corrupt file (common.rdb)?

Specifically what did you do that doesn't work?

I've just tried to start Libre Office the usual way and I've also tried to open single documents made in Writer, Calc and the other. I've also tried to open the different programs by direct double clicking on the soffice.exe, swriter.exe, scalc.exe and nothing works.

Sigh... what did you do to reset user profile?

I solved the problem by changing the name to user-old and after starting up I copied the files from user-old to user. Now it works!
