Hello. I was very happy with LibreOffice 3.5.4, and did not know I was happy! So, uninstalled version 3.5.4, downloaded and installed version 3.6.0. Then my problems started.

I always have problems in start the program. The system return a popup message: Fatal Error. Unhandled exception: InvalidRegistryException: file///C:Program%20......

Now, I no longer have the installers of the stable version 3.5.4

I think you should try at least test the program before releasing it to the public. This would avoid this embarrassing fiasco.

I think my solution is to download Apache OpenOffice 3.4.0, and try to be happy again!

It has been suggested numerous times here that deleting the user profile is a solution to this problem. See a description on how to do this here: http://wiki.documentfoundation.org/UserProfile

For those considering the solution of deleting the user profile, I'd like to add that in my case it was sufficient to delete the "extensions" subdirectory of the user profile. This might be handy information for people who want to keep most of their user profile and still update.

If you don't care about the user profile (you may need to set some settings again the way you want them), you can safely delete it though.

Related bugs: • fdo#53006fdo#51252fdo#43989fdo#50552 — removing the directory "extensions" (see above) should be a sufficient workaround. The bug will be fixed in version 3.6.1.

Fixed in LO 3.6.1

Here: no problems installing 3.6 with 3.5.5 previously installed, everything works like a charm. I even didn't need to remove 3.5.5 before installing 3.6. System: Win7 64bit.

I have installed v3.6.0 on four PCs (Win 7 32 and 64 bit) and after install, each one has crashed with the same error about 'Uno' something or another. The fix was the same in each case and works 100%...just repair the installation.

It's annoying that after fixing the installer to find the current (user defined) install folder, it now defaults to something else and has to be (once again) manually changed - the help files do not have this issue (they used to).

Have exactly the same issue.

Unhandled exception: Invalid Registry Exception: file:///C:Program%20Files%20(x86)/LibreOffice%203.6/program /.../share/extensions/wiki-publisher/components.rdb:duplicate <implementation name="com.sun.star.wiki.WikiOptionsEventHandlerImpl">

The solution is here: link text

You need to change the user profile in app data....Unfortunately you have to migrate the data but the software will work.

After 19 minutes of installation process of LO 3.6 I received a Microsoft .NET Framework error message. Unhandled exception has occurred in your application. If you click Continue, the application will ignore this error and attempt to continue. If you click Quit, the application will close immediately.... and so on... If you want I can paste the Details shown in this window. I will try to Continue and see what's happening. I did that and no other pop up message showed up. I started LO for the first time now. It doesn't crash on 25% loading. Two minutes after the starting window disappears and I have no clew what is going on. LO icon is not among the running programs. Four minutes and nothing. I decided to go and launch LO again. Five seconds and the main menu shows up. Text document opens, same for Presentation, Spreadsheet, Drawing and Formula. Finally Database shows up not crashing. Congratulations. The instructions on the link, for now, it worked after almost 35 minutes of work. This is an installation to remember.

As for me, I noticed that LibO 3.6 (RC4, but as far as I understood it became the final version) would always crash silently the first time I launch it after the installation. I.e., I install it, I launch it, see the splash screen load for some seconds then nothing. Then I relaunch it and it works fine (no more startup crashes afterwards, even after rebooting, etc: it's just the very first post-install launch that 100% failed for me).

Edit: need points to upvote... since this Q&A is pretty new, I guess this is why the question hasn't been upvoted like 10 times already...

Now is a new message after rebooting the computer. In the process of starting the application when it was one forth of loading its file a popup says: "LibreOffice 3.6 stopped working. A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available". And that's it. You are on your own. I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit. Please guys, solve the problem ASAP. This is not a game. You promote this product as a trusted program for a lot of institutions and this is what we got? Please there are reports I have to finish and I don't want to end having to buy Microsoft's Office package. I can't believe this is happening.
