LibreOffice took 7 minutes to start up, then crashed.
I have never installed OpenOffice or previous versions of LibreOffice on this machine, a dual-core pentium running Vista with 2 GBs of RAM (circa 2007).
Steps to reproduce:
1. Install onto fresh machine
2. Launch Calc from the Start menu.
3. Progress bar took about 2 minutes to get to 100%-ish (couldn't tell if it was exactly 100%) while it loaded all kinds of unnecessary shit (a wiki publishing system?!) then sat there for five minutes until I wiggled the mouse, at which point the cursor changed to a blue circle busy cursor, and a few seconds after that, the loading box disappeared. I waited for a spreadsheet to open, but nothing further happened.

It crashes like "crash" (memory dump, Windows Erroring, a line in event viewer, etc.) or it "crash" like after first install nothing happens, but on the second run all is right?

Likely related to bug 53009 (though 7 min is really long)

If the latter, see "LibreOffice silently terminates after splash screen" <https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/ReleaseNotes/3.6#Most_annoying_bugs>.

I am not really familiar enough with Windows to know when a program crashes vs. when it just exits silently. I believe moving the mouse prompted the stuck splash screen to disappear. Can someone familiar with Vista tell me where I can view core dumps, windows error logs, and the event viewer?
Also, timing was from glancing at the clock in the lower right and is approximate. I was not timing it until the symptoms occurred. The slowness of the system was due to heavy paging, caused by the about 150 tabs I have had open for the past month, all of which relate to things I am half‐way through working on when my boss gives me a new task. The laptop in question only has 40 GB of disk space and 2 GB of RAM.
Further to this report, I have not had a silent exit since the first launch (although there've plenty of other crashes in the last 48 hours, relating to incomplete .ods archives as I try to write one out that LibreOffice can read).
