Hm, this sounds like bug 46074, only that <https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=46074#c59> means it should automatically work again in LO 3.5.3.

Yorick, there should be a file registrymodifications.xcu in LO's per-user configuration data (not sure where exactly that is located on your machine, likely somewhere underneath "C:\Documents and Settings" or somesuch).  Can you check whether temporarily moving that file away solves the problem?  Also, I would be interested in the content of that file -- it is a text XML file and should not really contain sensitive information, so if you are OK with sharing it you can attach it here or send it to me directly, sbergman at redhat dot com.

When opening a document directly from explorer it will work but when opening a file from the menu it wil not.

With the attached registrymodifications.xcu, I could reproduce the problem.  The auto-healing attempts from <https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=46074#c59> were obviously not sufficient for all cases.  The further auto-healing fix from <https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=46074#c67> should address that (on master, but I intend to get it backported to libreoffice-3-5-4).

I'm marking this bug now as a duplicate of bug 46074, bundling all the auto-healing attempts there.
