I have been trying to set Libreoffice as my default App on Windows 10. I have the most current version of Libre installed (just installed it a couple days ago) and the most current version of Windows 10 (new computer, ran full updates before installing Libre).

As an example, when I right click a .doc file, choose Open With, Choose Another App, More Apps, Look for Another App on this PC... I cannot find the correct functioning .exe file to set LibreOffice as my default.

What is the path to find the correct .exe and what is it called?

Which LO version do you use?

In Windows it is the directory: C:\Program Files\LibreOffice\program

The file is called: soffice.exe

Maybe this guide will help you even more.

Thank you for replying.

Version: (x64) Build ID: 2b840030fec2aae0fd2658d8d4f9548af4e3518d

I found that guide earlier. It does not help.

My current path appears to be C:/Program Files/WindowsApps/42109FactoriaDatacenter.LibreOffice_6.2.2.0_neutral_zaf1c6h4vqsbt/VFS/ProgramFilesx64/LibreOffice/program/soffice.exe

But, if I open that soffice.exe I get a prompt:

"soffice.exe - Sytem Error

The code execution cannot proceed because MSVCP140.dll was not found. Reinstalling the program may fix this problem."

However, If I just go through my start menu and open LibreOffice the program opens normally with no problems.
