Description Mike Kaganski 2021-03-27 09:42:57 UTC
We have complaints about LibreOffice not behaving nicely when updating a running instance: see bug 141226.

We need to make LibreOffice react properly to Windows Restart Manager events, allowing to shutdown the running instance (including quickstart), and re-launch it again after the update.

A problem here would be a set of documents currently open in this instance: an initial command line could contain documents no more open; and other documents could be open.

This task somewhat overlaps bug 117100, where the command line of current instance is also somewhat problematic, and should be edited for the relaunch.
