Hi! I hope you could please help me. A couple of days a go, I was working just fine in writer, but then the toolbar of mendeley began to look weird and I couldn't add news references. So I closed the toolbar and then I lost it! there is no option of mendeley toolbar anymore. So I tried to install it again from mendeley but didn't work, I also found the options to install extension from the writer and it was the same. I asked for help from mendeley support and they told me to try to install version 5 but I can't find it in the official page so I tried with the first version I downloaded and didn't work. I already tried with versions of libreoffice, 6.1.5 and mendeley 1.19.4 and 1.19.5 and nothing. Please help.

I attached the some screenshoots of the error messages I get (Sorry, they are in spanish).

Hi, sorry for the delay. And till today I haven´t found a solution. I even ask to the mendeley support, they just recommended deinstall and reinstall both programs. But it didn´t work, i tryed differents versions and it was the same. I´m considering install office... I hope you have better luck!

I bet they meant "install LibreOffice version 5..." - and any released version of LibreOffice is available from download archive (mentioned on this Ask sites many tiles).

Yes, I really tried with different versions but none worked (version 5 included).

I have just tried with LibreOffice x64 on Windows 10, with a normal Mendeley Desktop installed from, and it installed fine (plugin version 1.19.4), and runs correctly... so - no idea why could it not work for you. I'd try to remove LibreOffice, and its user profile, just in case; check that no program directory remnants left; and then try reinstalling.

Hi! Thanks Mike Kaganski, I did what you recommended and finally i can use mendeley again. Thanks!! Also, someone recommend me to delete all files remaining in C after uninstalling both programs, have to looke for them in the hiden items, even used CCleaner ^^u And only then it worked.
