Download and installed 4.1.6, but won't open

Using Windows 7 Professional. LibO worked fine on my old XP machine.

After installing and trying to run, message says: “The program cannot be opened. The service manager is not available. (Invalid Registry Exception: file:///:program%20Files%20(x86)LibreOffice%204/program/services/services.rdb:duplicate”) Start setup application to repair the installation from CD, or the folder containing the installation package."

I’ve downloaded and installed twice. Same result. Help!

I’ll try that. Thanks

I would do the following:

  • Make sure I download from
  • Make sure you select the version you want and need
  • Uninstall the your current installation
  • Make sure there are traces left in the Program folder
  • Remove the old installation including the application data of Libre Office in your application data folder (should in W7 be the same as in XP)
  • Install again and it should work
