I updated LibreOffice to, and when I tried to start the Mail Merge Wizard in Writer, the whole program froze and crashed.  I tried several things, i.e., closing/reopening the program, restarting the computer, running CCleaner.  Nothing helped the problem.  I uninstalled LibreOffice and installed LibreOffice  The Mail Merge Wizard now works perfectly under the earlier version, as it had before.  OS: Windows 8.1

I tried with LibO 4.4 RC1 on Win 8.1 32-bit, but no crash.

Maybe you could try doing this first:

Then installing the 4.4 release candidate:

If it still crashes, you could try getting a backtrace (a bit more involved):

You can get help on IRC for debugging: http://webchat.freenode.net/?channels=libreoffice-qa

I'm setting this to NEEDINFO, while we wait for your results. Then it's either back to UNCONFIRMED or closed as RESOLVED WORKSFORME (you can do the change when replying).
