Windows 10, version 1903, build 18362.720
We’ve been using LO for years (windows, linux, mac).
March 11 was the first time this happened to my wife. LO didn’t appear at all in the list of programs to remove. I downloaded and reinstalled, and it worked fine.
Today she told me that she’s had to *reinstall from the 6.3.5.msi file every day she wants to use it. When I checked today, the directories ‘…/Program Files/LibreOffice’ and ‘…/Program Files/LibreOffice5’ were empty. I removed the one for v5, she reinstalled from the *.msi file, and she’s up again.
She shut the computer down today (“Shut Down”). I opened it again, and today’s reinstall is still good.
This is odd, though: when I click on the desktop icon to start it again – all recent files are available, going back months. How is that possible when I saw empty directories this morning before she reinstalled this morning?
This incident was closed in 2016 as irrelevant or outdated. The problem is back for me.
Has this happened to anyone? What’s the cause and/or solution?
