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!

Got it working on Win 7 32 bit Sp1:

Step 1: I uninstalled all Libre Office.

Step 2: I renamed the folder on Windows 7 from "C:\Users\<user>\Application Data\libreoffice\3" to "C:\Users\<user>\Application Data\libreoffice\3_OLD".

Step 3: Resinstalled the 3.6 (Version (Build ID: 932b512)) version.

Step 4: Delete the 3_OLD folder and Enjoy :)

Note: You need to permissions to view System Folders or you can just copy paste the path from above. Don't forget to replace the <user> with your login name.

Same problem here. I agree you should test before releasing to the public. It is like you trying to promote moving users back to Microsoft instead of receiving the benefits of LO. By the way the previous version was crashing for not finding Java which was install. I thought that with this update my problems were gone. On the contrary they worsen.

I'm uninstalling 3.6 and I will delete the LO folders left after the uninstall, following the instructions from the link. It will take more than 10 minutes on my W7U 64bit 4Gb RAM. Suggestion since this is not a regular process for a regular user: why not creating a batch file that clean up everything after backing up those personal files and restoring them after reinstalling LO. I hope this will work.

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.

Thanks Marcus, that helped. Deleting the profile was not an option for me, to many settings. But just deleting the extentions folder solved everything.

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).
