LibreOffice installed---but won't open [closed]

I was happily running LibreOffice 6.3.3 (on Windows 10) for several weeks, but this morning I tried to reinstall it on my SSD. I've re-downloaded and reinstalled it several times, and tried 6.2.8 as well, but I've been unable to actually open the program. When I go to the program location, I see lots of stuff, but no large .exe file. The shortcut that the installation automatically created goes to: "D:\Program Files\LibreOffice\program\soffice.exe" --- an 86 KB application that does nothing when clicked upon. (Maybe I simply need to correct the shortcut location?)

With me: "C:\Program Files\LibreOffice\program\soffice.exe" = 86kB

Double click starts LibreOffice.

Windows 10 Home; Version 1909; 64-Bit | LibreOffice, Version: (x64).

Thanks for your reply! The problem turned out to be a conflict with Adobe Acrobat/Reader. LibreOffice now working.
