get as far as registering fonts on the installation wizard and then it stops, ive even left it over night and it still freezes and I have to reboot to get out of the wizard (it will not respond to cancel button)

I've tried as many suggestions as I can find in the forums all to no avail, even tried OO with the same result it stops at registering fonts as well.

I have full admin rights

With respect to Windows 10 and LibreOffice fonts there is an interesting note here for LibreOfficePortable from PortableApps: LibreOfficePortable Font Warning. Basically it says that Windows 10 is bugged regarding font handling.

There is a section that says this:

LibreOffice Fonts - The LibreOffice Portable package includes the OpenSymbol font included with the local version but not the other font faces. This is due to a bug on Windows 10 Anniversary that causes dynamically loaded fonts to take 10x longer to load. The fonts are available as a direct download zip of fonts. You add the fonts to LibreOffice Portable directly by placing them in the LibreOfficePortable\Data\fonts directory or add them to the PortableApps.com Platform for use by all apps by placing them in your PortableApps\PortableApps.com\Data\fonts directory.

It MIGHT be the case that even though you are fully installing LibreOffice to the system this will be an issue. (The same sort of thing is noted for ApacheOpenOfficePortable.)

How many fonts do you have installed?

If you have a lot, try reducing the number by un-installing un-needed fonts.

Hi, just checked installed fonts, 82 I have not added any so should be the windows norm, one question is how many fonts does LO add? two what does the installer add or do after fonts?
