Description Joel Madero 2015-01-08 19:43:38 UTC
Win 8.1
LibreOffice 4.3.5

1. Download LibreOffice;
2. Install
3. During install make sure to select "Load at startup" (or the equivalent of that)
4. Reboot after install

QuickStarter does not load on startup. Go to Tools -> Options -> Memory -> "Load LibreOffice during system start-up" and note that it is not checked.

QuickStart loads up and option is checked.

Broken at least sine from what I can tell. Wasn't available in 3.5, probably never worked right.

Setting to:
Trivial - workaround is just to check the box in the settings after you install. Doesn't really slow down anything in terms of creating professional quality work.

See bug 80927 comment 85, seems QS problems reappeared.

I think it is a duplicate as the same install package (msi) is used for clean installs and upgrades. 
I confirm that quickstarter is not active after a clean install, bit didn't mention that in bug 35568 as I didn't know if that was intentional. With an upgrade you notice the change in setting "Load at startup".

But I wouldn't dare to change the status to duplicates, with so many QA-people in the discussion ;-)

I tested but didn't reproduced this on a (real) clean install, meaning computer that never had LO.
Comment 8 Timur 2016-02-24 15:24:42 UTC
With some more tests, I did reproduce. Seems occasional.
