The recovery problem is not fixed.
I deleted the timothy/"app data"/"LO folder" and the went to the folder that held the "recent document" "links" that shows up in XP in the recent document list.

Then I stared LO and it did not give me the "recovery" option.

I had not used the laptop for a long time and the file was deleted when I deleted the folders where a friend placed all his files when he borrowed the laptop. His 1 year old one died big time. He used LO instead of MSO, as long as Impress would "play" the MSO presentations he had to study and show to groups at a local Food Bank.

Well, at least it is done.

I know that there are some XP systems that have trouble with LO. I did a clean install of XP on a machine that LO crashed the first time I opened it. But the reinstall/repair option fixed it. Why this happens, I do not know.

Was there something about Java and LO having issues somewhere? Could the newest Java engine be doing craze things? Since the clean installs of XP would want to download the newest Java somewhere in the process before LO is installed.

Well I have deleted - completely - all the LibreOffice folders, hidden and not, so there has to be something somewhere that I do not see.

Ubuntu keeps it in the .libreoffice folder, but I do not know where this reference is located on XP/pro.

Hi :)
@Webmaster. There is a hidden ~lock(something) file usually in the same folder as the problem file but sometimes in the backups folder in your UserProfile. Just delete it and try to open the file again. I'm guessing you already know this so i don't understand why it's not fixing it this time. :(
Regards from
Tom :)

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.
