I just tried installing Libre Office 5 and I get this error whenever I try to open any of the programs.

I've tried re-installing several times, and I've made sure everything is set to run as an administrator. I need this program to access some spreadsheets - I can't use excel because of the lack of functionality (E.g. macro's).

Any help appreciated.

There is a space between the backslash and LibreOffice.

If it is in a Direct Acces or a command line, as it has spaces should be between quotes:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\LibreOffice 5\program\scalc.exe"

If you have installed 64 bits version, the path should be:
"C:\program files\LibreOffice 5\program\scalc.exe"
