- open a console and execute this command:
soffice.exe - h

A window is opened showing you the possibilities of command line parameters. It has a "Close" button.

The bug is that one cannot click on the button to close the window.

I can confirm with LO 4.4.3, win7. Close button is inactive when click with a mouse, but works when I hit enter key.

Confirmed with LO on Windows 7.

4.2 screenshot

So the problem doesnt happen when there is a little bit of text output (e.g. soffice -v), but does when there is alot of output because the text is overlapping the close button as can be seen in the 4.2 screenshot.

So this is a regression as it is fine in 4.0. Not sure if it started in 4.1 or 4.2.

I believe that changes to bug 100826 have made this bug obsolete. Now the --help output goes to a console window (either parent's if used from CLI, or a new one) on Windows, just like on other OSes.

Ok, let's close as WFM as it's not really a direct fix :)
