Hi :)
There must be and i hoped that someone here would enlighten us where it's kept in Xp.  Perhaps 
google for it?  You could try opening LibreOffice from the command-line as that sometimes gives 
extra output such as problems and the command window should stay open after the app has crashed.  
This link might help with that although it's obviously made for heftier reasons

Hmm, i don't like the little "run" thing.  I prefer to open a proper command window.  It 'should' 
be in

"Start" 'button' (the one you use to close the machine) - "All programs" - Accessories - errr this 
is where it gets weird, something like "MSDOS prompt" or "Cmd prmpt" or "Command window"  (in 
Gnu&Linux we sometimes use a generic term,  "terminal console" which sounds a bit dire)

Hopefully it will accept the command

libreoffice -writer


soffice -writer

or without the "-writer" tag.  My Ubuntu 10.04 at home didn't like any of those but the 11.04 at 
work liked them all.  Weird really because i definitely installed 10.04 here and haven't upgraded 
and everyone else seems to use Windows on these machines.  Magically it turns out i am on 11.04 and 
Gnome is looking great!  The Xp public access machines wouldn't let me get to a command-line and i 
didn't look for the "Run" thing.  

Ahah, maybe the bug-reports page might help?
That got me to this YouTube video (it might be loud!)

Regards from
Tom :)

Is there a debugging logging feature in LO to find out why my LO is 
crashing at startup?

I did a scratch install of 3.4.6 on my XP/pro machine.

No crash.
I did a partial delete then ran it again,
did the repair, OK again
Did it a third time but did the repair instead of the delete, and it
worked again.

There has to be something in your system.

I tried to make the install work hard to install it on my XP
machine, but it never crashed.

The only problem is somewhere there is a place that stores the
recovery info and it keeps trying to recover an Impress document
that was deleted.  I do not know what I have to delete to get it
cleared out on an XP machine.

Try the install again.  If you do not uninstall it, you should get a
repair option.  Take that option.  That worked for me when I had my
XP installs crash on me.
I reran G:\test\LibreOffice 3.4 (4f600ba6) Installation Files\setup.exe
since I already had it extracted/unpacked. So, I hope that's OK to save
time. I ran its Repair. I reran Writer, same crash. I deleted my
C:\Documents and Settings\UserName\Application Data\LibreOffice\ and
reran it. Same results. LO hates my old XP Pro. SP3 machine. :(

The Application Data folder is a hidden one.  If you go to your
folder options and allow for system and hidden folders to be viewed,
then delete the LibreOffice folder in your user folder's Application
Data folder, it should help.
I assume you mean C:\Documents and Settings\UserName\Application
Data\LibreOffice\, then yes I did earlier.
