As soon as I launch LibreOffice 3.6, it stops working.
This is the same PC (with Win 7 OS) that had "crash-on-start" problem with LibO 3.6 beta.
The error message is as follows:

In a possibly related event, my Firefox 15.0 complained about Java module and closed it down (this probably refers to JRE that got installed when I installed JDK7 u3.)
Should I delete the user profile and retry?
NOT reproducible with "LibreOffice 220.127.116.11 German UI/Locale [Build-ID: 4db6344] on German WIN7 Home Premium (64bit)
THE world famous start up problem? A little more info would help.
Unfortunately important information is missing in your report.
May be hints on <http://wiki.documentfoundation.org/BugReport> will help you to find out what information will be useful to reproduce your problem? If you believe that that is really sophisticated please as for Help on a user mailing list.
Please test with 18.104.22.168 or later, what works much better, before any other activity. We will not invest any manpower into a bug only reproducible with a very obsolete Beta.
- Write a meaningful Summary describing exactly what the problem is
- Attach screenshots with comments if you believe that that might explain the
problem better than a text comment. Best way is to insert your screenshots
into a DRAW document and to add comments that explain what you want to show
- add information
-- what EXACTLY is unexpected (stops working, what does that mean? Crash?
Disappears silently? ...?)
-- concerning your PC (video card, ...)
-- concerning your OS (Version, Distribution, Language)
-- concerning your LibO localization (UI language, Locale setting)
–- Libo settings that might be related to your problems
(video hardware acceleration ...)
-- how you launch LibO and how you opened the sample document
–- What other 3.6 Crash Bugs did you already check whether they are
concerning the same problem?
-- everything else crossing your mind after you read linked texts
Well, 22.214.171.124 is a PRE-release. So I thought problems in the stable version (3.6) should be reported regardless of what's in it.
AFAIK I HAVE shared all relevant info.
The only two additional items I can think of are-
(a) The program stops working, and windows says "Libreoffice 3.6 has stopped working".
(b) I clicked on the LO in in the launch bar to launch the program.
BTW I deleted the Extension folder in my user profile, but that did not help.
LO still stops working as soon as I launch it.
I have also uninstalled JDK7u3 and installed a fresh copy of JDKu6.
But the problem still exists.
I will install 126.96.36.199 tomorrow and report.
Might be DUP of "Bug 51252 - LO cannot start (reports runtime error with Visual C++ Runtime Library)"
Reporter's dump looks similar to the one in "Bug 52017 - CRASH when launch on Win 7 x64"
Well, Bug#51252 was also reported by me.
But this time the symptoms are different.
This time the GUI goes "all white" (foggy) and the Windows pops up the message "LibreOffice 3.6 has stopped working".
It offers two options to the user:
(a) find solution on the web and close the program,
(b) Close the program.
This is distinct from the runtime error reported in bug#51252.
Besides, I already have reported that deleting the extension folder does not resolve the issue.
That said, there is a common factor also:
Out of my two PCs (both running win 7), only one suffered from Bug#51252. The other PC was not affected at all. This bug has affected them in exactly the same way. But now deleting the extension folder does not resolve the issue.
Out of the two PCs, the "OK" PC has 32-bit Windows Ultimate OS.
I will report the other OS type tomorrow.
Please also try to rename complete profile folder, not only extensions folder
Thank you for your patience!
oh that's something new.
(Just to clarify, I didn't have to do that as workaround in bug#51252...)
In this case, could you please tell me which folder to rename in the following chain?
Thanks in advance!
Simply modify the "3" in "\LibreOffice\3\user\"
I am not optimistic that that will heal the problem, but that's the most simple test.
Here is the remaining feedback about the OS version:
The "Not OK" PC has 32-bit Win7 Professional, SP-1.
(In comparison, the "OK" PC has 32-bit Win7 Ultimate.)
@Renaming the "3" folder in the user profile path:
I did that.
When I started LO after that, it re-created a "3" folder (and subfolders).
Note: In the following description, I have clicked on the LO's icon in the launch bar to launch LO. I did not use any other method (such as clicking on a file associated with LO). But if you think it is necessary, I will repeat the experiment exactly as you wish.
The flash screen lasted for 2-3 minutes (showing status that LO is loading various components). But after that it just vanished. I tried to launch LO a couple of times, with the same result. (Each time the flash screen vanished).
I kept on trying. But it stopped responding totally (No flash screens also).
Finally I checked the Process Explorer, and found 6-7 sets of soffice.exe. Apparently each of these processes had launched an instance of soffice.bin.
In other words, I saw 6-7 sets of-
And that's not all: I also saw an equal number of soffice.bin (or was that exe?) running on their own (not a bin-exe pair).
I killed them all, and again launched LO. This time it got launched OK.
I was about to install 188.8.131.52 on this PC. Should I go ahead or wait for further instructions?
Thanks in advance

The vanishing might be caused by an other "Bug 43989 - After installation first launch terminates after splash screen". That should have been fixed for 184.108.40.206.beta2, but I do not know whether anything is known concerning remaining damages caused by that bug

I doubt that that can be explained by that "other bug"

I think that is a result of your problem, not the reason
> I killed them all, and again launched LO. This time it got launched OK.
That is interesting, My experience with Bug 43989 was that the soffice.bin was terminated after the silent crash, but there might have been variants.

Currently I am tending to hope that you suffered from an "aggressive variant" of Bug 43989. I recommend to install 18.104.22.168 (what works much better than 3.6.0) and to start with a new user profile. There were lots of problems (most in bundled extensions) and the fixing still is in progress.
But please keep you replaced profile, if your problem reappears comparison of profile versions might help to understand you problem.
ok. So should I copy just the "3" folder, or any of the parent folders?
BTW I can compare the folders between the OK and the not ok PCs, if you want. I can send you diff between non-text files too.
(In reply to comment #12)
> ok. So should I copy just the "3" folder, or any of the parent folders?
Copy? For your 3.6.1 I recommend to start with a new Profile, if there is not \3\ LibO will create such a new file
> BTW I can compare the folders between the OK and the not ok PCs, if you want.
I'm afraid you will have to sort out lots of irrelevant differences, and I am afraid currently nobody can use your results. So I would recommend to avoid that work if you are successful with your 3.6.1 installation
Well, in comment#11, you advised me to-
>But please keep you replaced profile, if your problem reappears comparison of
>profile versions might help to understand you problem.
(see the last line).
Since LO does not have a built-in command to save a user profile, I thought that the only way to save a profile is to save the "3" folder.
In that context, I had a doubt--
Which folder should I save: Just the "3" folder or a parent folder?
And since you mentioned analysis of the problem by comparing the profile folders, it struck me that we already two PCs for such comparison.
But comment#13 reverses that logic.
If comparing folders is going to be too difficult a task, we may as well drop the idea of saving the profile.
So what should I do- follow your comment#11 or 13?
Comment#11 says I should save folder (which?) and install 22.214.171.124.
comment#13 says I should close LO, delete "3" folder and then install 126.96.36.199.
(This option does NOT save a profile for later comparison).
Awaiting advise... (will hold off installation of 188.8.131.52 till then)
