I'm currently running Windows Vista.

I've had no problems with previous versions of LibreOffice(L.O.) and so I installed L.O. 3.5

The installer says that I've successfully installed L.O. 3.5.

When I click on the icon I get some startup details and then a windows message saying L.O has stopped working.

Tried a few cycles of un-install and reinstall but keep getting the same problem.

Any thoughts?

I hate Vista. I had to reinstall 3.4.5 twice to get it working on my Vista Laptop. Vista is a bad OS, compared to XP and Win7. One thing you need to do is reboot between uninstall and the next install. Also, I would make sure the "program data folder" for LO is removed after the uninstall. There may be things that are left in that type of folder that could be the issue. Also, make sure your downloaded version was completely downloaded. Sometimes people have their downloads "unfinished" from one of our mirrors [which the download system choose for you].

For now, I would stick with 3.4.5.  If you can.

3.5.0 is the "cutting edge" version or some people call it "bleeding edge" when these type of errors happen.

To be honest, unless you need any feature that is new with 3.5.0, I would stick with 3.4.5 for a bit longer. It is always nice to see what the newest version is all about, so to speak, but if you want to use LO without any issues, stick with the previous version when the newest one ends with ".0" or ".1". These are not for the people who need it for day-to-day, business, or enterprise, applications.

I have been using LO since the first month it was out. I am sticking with 3.4.5 till 3.5.x gets to ".1" or ".2", at least, since I use it for home-office work.
