So poking at this for bug 76239, which lead me around to bug 68194
I'm not sure we have things correct on the Windows installer.
I manually cleaned Windows 7 sp1 64-bit or all LibreOffice fonts, and verified not winsxs GAC residual.
C:\Windows\Fonts empty of all fonts, no remaining linkages in Windows registry.
Install clean LibreOffice 126.96.36.199, CLI msiexec.exe /i run as administrator, with verbose logging (attached).
full slate of LO external fonts are present. Launch LO and fonts are present.
Uninstall LibreOffice 188.8.131.52, CLI msiexe.exe /x run as administrator, with verbose logging (attached).
The LibreOffice installed fonts are NOT removed from C:\Windows\Fonts
Uninstall logs seem to suggest there is no action performed against the fonts which are listed as Installed: Local Action: Null
Don't think the installer is behaving as intended, i.e. regards themsidbComponentAttributesSharedDllRefCount, with the work done for bug 68194.
Created attachment 117792 [details]
LO 184.108.40.206 msiexec verbose install log
Created attachment 117793 [details]
LO 220.127.116.11 msiexec verbose Uninstall log
So, guess the point of all this is that we don't seem to have the logic for handling registration into the C:\Windows\Fonts directory correct for installation (recording details for uninstall) or for doing the uninstall.
