I have tried reinstalling LibreOffice, repairing it, and unistalling and then reinstalling, but I
always get the same error. How can I fix this?
I am running Windows 7
It looks like one of the files in your profile is corrupt. Uninstalling
and reinstalling keeps your existing profile, so that any user
configuration is carried over to a new version, so won't fix that.
First thing I'd try is to close LibreOffice, rename just that one file,
then start LibreOffice. It might create a default and start OK, or it
might not. If that works, you can either try to copy anything from the
original (renamed) file which you need, or just delete it.
If that doesn't work, close LibreOffice and rename the folder
C:/Users/jishler/AppData/Roaming/LibreOffice/ (for example, to
"LibreOffice-2015-01-04"). Then start LibreOffice; it should create a
new "LibreOffice" folder with a default profile. Depending how much
you've customised, you might want to try to copy some parts of the old
profile across to the new (e.g. custom spell check dictionaries), but if
you haven't customised much it's probably easier just to re-do any
configuration you need via the options within LibreOffice.
Renaming rather than deleting these files/folders means you've still got
a copy of the broken profile in case you need to recover anything from
it. You can delete them if you're confident you don't need anything from
