Description Jan Spaens 2019-03-12 10:34:09 UTC
Old version 6.1.2 installed. Original MSI no more available caused refusal to install. I manually deleted the LibreOffice folder in program files, cleaned up the registry by removing all references to LibreOffice. Cleaned the registry with CCleaner. After this: Still no possibility to install.
Any chance to have a clean, no-nonsense straightforward forced install?
As an (retired) 45-year experience behind the belt programmer, thanks in advance.

Actual Results:
No LibreOffice available on this machine

Expected Results:
Installed version of LibreOffice

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Advise of Julien followed at no avail. Currently impossible to install any version of LibreOffice on this machine.

First of all - of course, it would help to clarify what "refusal to install" means: any error messages? which? as a programmer, you surely understand that "it doesn't work" is a poor description. ;-)

Please check this FAQ [1]. Unfortunately, I chose a poor name for the wiki page when creating, with parentheses; so check that trailing closing parenthesis is included.

If there's nothing that helps, please create a log (see in the end of the FAQ), and provide it here to check.
