Hi Thomas

Just to recap:
You've upgraded Windows from XP to Windows 7 and then upgraded LibreOffice 3.6 to 4.1.

The path to the user folder is moved by Windows in the upgrade of Windows. My guess is that the path to the AutoText-files, that is stored under that folder, did not get converted properly.
- Open the dialog AutoText (Ctrl + F3) and click on Paths...
- Do you see a path that looks something like this:
C:\Users\<your username>\AppData\Roaming\LibreOffice 4\user\autotext

If you do not see such a path then you can add it and try again. You might also want to check the paths for other program functions. Go to Tools -> Options... and in the dialog that pops up look under the section LibreOffice -> Paths (the list to the left). If you see an entry that starts with C:\Documents and Settings... it is likely wrong so select it in the list and click on the button Default. If everything goes well you should now see a path that starts with C:\Users\...

After Windows XP Microsoft moved a lot of folders around among others the %AppData% folder where the user profile of LibreOffice is stored. Now the problem is that these files contains some settings that links to the paths that no longer exist.

Sorry for the late answer, I hope this solves your problems.
If it does not, please let us know what paths are listed in your AutoText dialog so we can figure out what else might have gone wrong.

Anyway let us know how it turns out.

Thank you!
One misunderstanding: the note PC on which I installed LO4.2 has been running Win7 from the start. I followed your advice and checked the paths and noticed that the PATH to the autotext includes at the end the folder "autotext", BUT, in fact, there was no such folder under that directory! (is this not supposed to be created automatically during installation?) So, I manually created that folder and now things seem to working as they are supposed to be.

This is the kind of "twist in events" that ordinary mortal people do not think of so often ...
Thanks again.
