Description David Chambers 2014-11-13 03:50:08 UTC
Libre Office install modifies two Live Mail files. The impact on Live Mail is that the clipboard cannot be Pasted into a new email.

Work around. Make sure Libre Office is installed first, then install Windows Live mail.

Hi David,
Thanks for the bug report. Specifically which Live Mail files are being modified by LibreOffice?  (And what version of Windows are you using?)
Comment 2 David Chambers 2014-11-13 05:46:05 UTC
Using Windows 7 Pro 64b. Target is Windows Live Mail 2012. Cannot identify the files that Live mail uses and Libre Office wanted to change. The Libre install message only asked to shutdown two running processes of Live Mail so that the files could be changed.
