Win 7 and LibreOffice

Hello all.
I need to run LO (I am using 32 bit) on a machine with Win 7, 32 bit (with the latest updates as of 2021, including SP1, and other later patches). I have tried a number of things but I keep getting the error below. LO just won’t start but it does start and does run in Safe Mode? Is the soffice.bin the issue? Is this maybe an issue with Program Compatibility Assistant? Should I turn it off?
Thank you very much for your time and consideration.

  1. Please check if you have installed this Windows 7 update (for 32 bit)
  2. Do you use an AMD videocard?

Have a look at:

Try 7.1.5

Never had any issues concerning Win7 with LO, so while not recommended, I don’t think there are problems now.

Edit: I have to correct this. The newer python requires a special update for win7 to work.
