I receive the follow error each time I try to update Writer.

"Error while installing extension English spelling dictionaries, hyphenation rules, thesaurus, and grammar checker. The error message is: Insert duplicate implementation name org.libreoffice.comp.pyuno.Lightproof.en The extension will not be installed."

How do you correct this?

Thanks Terry

  1. Uninstall libreoffice (normal way)
  2. Remove C:\Program Files (x86)\LibreOffice 4
  3. Remove %APPDATA%\extensions and %APPDATA%\uno_packages
  4. Install again

Note that this will also remove all your installed extensions.

I've answered making following assumptions:

  1. You're on a 64-bit windows
  2. You're using LO 4.1 or later
  3. You're using official msi installer, downloaded from
