Hi :)
Dohhh, sorry.  My turn for missing an earlier post!  I hadn't realised you had already tried 
re-downloading.  Sorry chap!  

It is probably best for you to avoid the 3.6.0 at this point.  Beta-testing pre-release versions is 
better after you have some idea of how to get back to safety.  The 3.5.4 is probably the best 
version to install right now although a lot of us are sticking with the 3.4.6 on machines we can't 
fuss about with all the time.  The 3rd point is roughly equivalent to a service pack so 3.4.6 is 
roughly like 3.4 Sp6.  However the .4 is usually where a branch suddenly becomes very much more 
stable so i am moving towards getting that on all machines except the one i can really play around 
with where i will hopefully get time to test-drive the 3.6.0 before it gets released properly.  
It's always good to try the latest beta somewhere where you don't need to rely on it always working 
in order to get real work done.  

We don't normally have all this trouble trying to install LibreOffice on Win7 which is why we are a 
bit stuck.  Usually it just goes through really smoothly.  On Xp i would usually approach pretty 
much any problem by defragging, disk-cleanup, running MS updates and rebooting but none of that 
should be causing problems for LibreOffice.  

I think just pick a version of LO, it doesn't really mater which one.  Then uninstall all other 
versions and try installing just the 1 again.  

By the way do you have OpenOffice, NeoOffice, Lotus Symphony or any othe Office Suite installed on 
the machine?  LO installs easily alongside MS Office but sometimes does have troubles alongside one 
of the OOo forks.  
Regards from
Tom :)

As I said in my first email, Windows 7 64-bit Home Premium.

I have tried downloading again - and the Beta release of 3.6 and still get
the same problem.

Note that the message I am getting refers to LO 3.5 Quickstarter, but it is
not installed at that stage. After removing LO 3.4, I still got the same
message and failure.

I am at a loss.
