Randomly one day, my documents would not open. Instead when I tried to open a file, a window would pop up with the heading, “soffice.bin - Bad Image” and the text would say:
C:\Program Files (x86)\LibreOffice 3.6\program\cairo.dll is either not designed to run on Windows or it contains an error. Try installing the program again using the original installation media or contact your system administrator or the software vendor for support.
I am so beyond confused, and I seriously need my documents to open again.
Also, I don’t use Libre Calc and the other things from Libre, but just for the sake of checking, those ALSO did not work. Can anyone help me?
EDIT: I’m really sorry about all these dumb questions, I just don’t know anything about computers unfortunately:
Do I need to uninstall what I have now before I reinstall LibreOffice? And are there any risks involved with uninstalling/reinstalling LibreOffice? (Examples of risks like losing all my documents or crashing my computer or some sort of crazy memory dump)
What does buying a new harddisk mean?
What is the point of the chkdsk?
