Description Gaetano Giunta 2013-01-15 17:44:06 UTC
Quite annoying, as in my experience 4.0 rc1 is still quite buggy...
Comment 1 Gaetano Giunta 2013-01-15 17:44:55 UTC
Realted to #59389 ?

Following the announcement: http://lists.freedesktop.org/archives/libreoffice/2013-January/043721.html

"NOTE: This build is in a release configuration and _will_ replace your
existing LibreOffice install on Windows."

This is not a bug, but the correct behavior.

But thanks for reporting!

I see.

Still, I think it should be written as well on the download page: https://www.libreoffice.org/download/pre-releases/

Mmmh, I didn't noticed that (I already read that in that mail, so I didn't check that when downloading).

Good point; Therefore I reopen it, and add the website mailinglist in CC

Thanks for your report!
Kind regards,
