       Maybe someone else will respond eventually with further help.

       Meanwhile, I'll attempt to explain further,
          [see interspersed below]

       Hoping this helps,

Thanks for responding, Anne.

I am not at all technical so I really have no idea what you mean by LO
file-loader, or how to go about it.

   [somehow you misread file-folder for file-loader  ;-)

       the LO file-folder is located ... from 'start' menu, click on,
maybe, 'computer' then scroll up to 'Users' then [your personal ID] then
scroll to 'AppData' then 'Roaming' then 'LibreOffice' ... you'll find
everything there, but coded to use in LO]

I don't have a virus as I have Norton 360 protection so it must be
something to do with a version upgrade. I was asked to allow LO to make
changes just before this happened.

   [with Norton, you may very well have a virus; but let's assume not;

      I'm confused though by your statement that LO asked to make changes]

Could you please tell me where I can find a previous version of LO so I can
delete the current version and install the older one?   Maybe that will

   [if you don't have your previous version still on your machine, then you
probably can find whatever you're wanting to use at the LO site.]

Thanks again.

       Sounds to me as if you've either uncovered a bug or contracted some
          therefore, I would suggest:

       (1) if a bug, then revert back to a previous version before this

       (2) if a virus, then run the various A-V programs until your system
is again clean.

       Meanwhile, go behind-the-scenes to the LO file-folder;
          gather all your data;
         save this elsewhere for safe keeping.

       Hoping this helps,

Subject: [libreoffice-users] ERROR The requested operation requires
elevation. Help please?

Hi all.
Every time I try and open a document from my Hard Drive to Libre Office I
get the following Error window.
ERROR  The requested operation requires elevation.
This has been happening for the last week or so. It coincided with Libre
Office asking to make changes to my computer whenever I tried to start the
program and it won't start unless I say 'YES'.
Any document that is in the 'recent documents' option in the program itself
will open, but nothing else.
I have deleted and re-installed Libre Office and still no difference.
Can anyone help and let me know how to fix this issue? I have many
extremely important business documents I can no longer access.
Thanks in advance for any assistance.
