There is an option in the Extension Manager to find updates. That is where I get the issue when I want to install the updates and sometimes the quickstarter will "block" the update, since you cannot shut down and restart LO completely with that option enabled. I do not know if it is still true with the 4.x versions, but it has been at least a year since I enabled the quickstarter option on my Ubuntu desktop and/or my Windows laptop.

Hi :)
I have it on for my colleagues to make LO start-up just that bit faster.  They pick on any slightest thing as 
"a blocker" and slower start-up drives them up the wall.  They really have no clue about adding 
Extensions and haven't used LO enough to grumble about any 'missing' functionality.  if they did i would add 
the appropriate Extension for them.  I already do the updates for them anyway.

Admittedly i am not in a perfect position and it's probably not a good idea to copy me.  On my own 
logins i avoid the quick-starter because there is plenty else to get on with while waiting for 
something to open.

Yes if one or both are fully installed (as opposed to /A administrative installs) they will 
interfere in subtle ways.

Actions to mitigate:

1) Disable the Quickstarter for both during installation -- the TDF LibreOffice and Apache 
OpenOffice versions will conflict--best if both are off. Done from AppWiz.cpl and a modify 
installation of both.

I always "disable" the Quickstart option.
In the past, having it active caused issues to updating some of the add on extensions.

2) Also, only one or the other should have the Windows Explorer Integration enabled (it provides a 
thumbnail view of ODF documents) in Desktop or Thumbnail views in Windows Explorer (Desktop and 
other folder views). Personally I also leave that unchecked when installing.

3) Finally, if using the "release" rather than development builds. The Windows registry will be 
written with file associations--the two programs should coexist to open a file type, but only one can be set 
as the default for any particular ODF or MS Office format.  So keep track of that.

Good luck.

Hi :)
I think it's the same conflicts as between any 2 versions of LibreOffice or any 2 versions of AOO 
or OOo.  Basically avoid having both open at the same time.  That might mean turning off the 
Quickstarter of both of them.

Are there any known conflicts with having LO 4.0.4 and AOO 4.0 installed on the same computer? In 
my never-ending, obsessive (and admittedly futile) search for computing perfection, I want to try 
both programs to see which better meets my techno-needs.
