I'm mostly using LO on linux but I have kept a version [5.4. ish] of LO
on a Windows box for occasional testing of documents. Having read a
recent post which spoke enthusiastically about some LO 6 features, I
thought I would give it go.

I downloaded and installed both these two files from's
download page :



LibreOffice Writer, Calc and Impress applications appear to work
correctly but trying to get the LO Help (F1) to work brings up an error
message -

"The LibreOffice built-in help is not installed on your computer"

I downloaded the help pack a second time and ran the installer. It
recognised the first installation and offered the repair option, which I
accepted. But F1 help still does not work.

When looking in C:\Program Files\LibreOffice, the help directory appears
to be stuffed with lots of files.

Any ideas how to get the applications to recognise the presence of the
help files?


I am experiencing the same issue. The SHA256 checked download of
LibreOffice_6.0.0_Win_x64_helppack_en-GB.msi installs without any
problem, but calling help (F1 or menu) returns the "Not Installed"
message, although Windows installed programs shows the en_GB Help Pack
as being installed.

The problem does not appear when the en_US Help Pack is installed.
