Please exit LibreOffice 3.5 and LibreOffice 3.5 quick start before continuing. If you are using a multi-user system, ensure no other user has open LibreOffice3.5

If you have OpenOffice installed, make sure it isn't running (neither the main application soffice nor the quickstarter). AFAIK the LibreOffice installer doesn't know if a running soffice instance belongs to OpenOffice or LibreOffice.
