Using Windows 7 Professional. LibO worked fine on my old XP machine.

After installing and trying to run, message says: "The program cannot be opened. The service manager is not available. (Invalid Registry Exception: file:///:program%20Files%20(x86)LibreOffice%204/program/services/services.rdb:duplicate<implementation name="animacore::Animate">") Start setup application to repair the installation from CD, or the folder containing the installation package."

I've downloaded and installed twice. Same result. Help!

I would do the following:
- Make sure I download from
- Make sure you select the version you want and need
- Uninstall the your current installation
- Make sure there are traces left in the Program folder
- Remove the old installation including the application data of Libre Office in your application data folder (should in W7 be the same as in XP)
- Install again and it should work
