I've installed RC1 under XP (no M$ Office were ever installed there), then re-run the installer and selected the Modify option. I've a different behaviour than the one of the reporter, but the problem is the same, since at least one application association is unflagged (in my case Word).
Btw, in a XP where no office program has been installed, .doc is associated with Wordpad, so if you double click .doc wordpad runs but shows nothing since is unable to decode that format.

These checkboxes are checked or not depending on the current MS-Office files associations. LibreOffice does not preempt a file association if the file type is already associated with another program.

Closing as WorksForMe. Please, feel free to reopen if you still see some inconsistency here with current stable versions.
