Am on PC. Updated to verison 7 and now OO crashes and freezes regularly. No problems until I updated to version 7. Tried to uninstall it but now I get a vcruntime140_1 error when I try to open Firefox. Can't install version 6 again.

to fix the vcruntime140_1 error, install the latest supported Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2015, 2017 and 2019 from here https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/2977003/the-latest-supported-visual-c-downloads (most probably you need vc_redist.x64.exe (Windows 64-bit)

Hope that helps.

Thanks for that. Yes, I installed MVC++ as above (this had already been installed previously) and yes, Firefox began to work. The problem is I can't uninstal OO7 (shaken or stirred? :)) or I get the same problem (and other seemingly random problems with other programs not opening). So I'm putting up with version 7 for now.

I now have LOO6.4.4 back. Firefox is working fine. So far other broken programs are working fine. I reinstalled Microsoft Visual C++ after uninstalling LOO7 and then installed the previous version 6 and it worked. I must have stuffed something up the first time I did this because it worked fine this time. Thanks and peace all.
