No menus or any headings displaying, just lines.
I am therefore unable to access any of the commands.
i am also unable to access the user profile, if that is the problem.

Upon opening Libre Office or any of it's applications

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Disable OpenGL rendering.

You'll need to add the below stanzas with a text editor to your profile configuration--registrymodifications.xcu in the %APPDATA%\LibreOffice\4\user folder.

They won't be there with a new default profile, because on Windows builds OpenGL is enabled (unless it was black-listed); once the stanzas are added they can be edited true or false as needed.

<item oor:path="/org.openoffice.Office.Common/VCL"><prop oor:name="ForceOpenGL" oor:op="fuse"><value>false</value></prop></item>
<item oor:path="/org.openoffice.Office.Common/VCL"><prop oor:name="UseOpenGL" oor:op="fuse"><value>false</value></prop></item>

Also, please let us know what GPU and driver your system has (from Windows msinfo32.exe) 

You can probably resolve with a driver update. But for now marking as duplicate of bug 112305
