Because I'm running out of space on my boot partition, I decided to install LibreOffice to my D drive in D:\Program Files\LibreOffice 3.4\. However, the 'check spelling as you type' feature doesn't work (and didn't with 3.4.2 either). If I perform a default install to drive C, it works fine.

That looks like a DUP of "Bug 37195 - Dictionary access lost after LibO upgrade", although "If I perform a default install to drive C, it works fine" makes me wonder.

- Available language modules' there is nothing. So it's probably related to Bug 37195, although as I said before, when I upgrade using the default install, the spell checker works. (Obviously the same problem applies to the other apps not just Writer.)
I tried the workaround, i.e. Copy 'configmgr.ini' from the program directory (2.), and paste the file to the user profile directory, but it made no difference.
yeah, it could be a duplicate alright. In the sense that the config is "stuck" pointing at c:\path\to\dictionaries. To test that you could install into D:\, blow away the entire AppData/LibreOffice directory, and then start LibreOffice and see if it works then.
Blitzed the LibreOffice directories and re-installed to drive D and it worked. I'm rather stupid not to have thought of that myself, although I suppose the problem is still worth solving because all user prefs are lost.
yeah, I reckon its a dupe. "stuck" prereg configuration due to an
