LibreOffice 5 starts multiple instances of itself at bootup, then won't open until they are closed in Task Manager

Windows 7 Enterprise

After startup, multiple instances of soffice.exe and soffice.bin are loaded. If you double-click a document or try to open LibreOffice, it will not start until these zombie processes are terminated.

I have uninstalled and reinstalled, no change.

This seems like it might be a very old bug, reported as far as back as 2010 in OOo and LO forums.

I can’t upload a screen cap as they system requires points (really???).


You have points to upload.

I am also seeing this problem (Win 7 Pro)
