Options dialog from version 188.8.131.52 under Windows XP x86
The tab and list item regarding the Online Update is missing in Windows x86 since at least 184.108.40.206 (probably since 220.127.116.11alpha0)
The tab shows up as expected under Windows x64 (verified with version 18.104.22.168 under Windows 7 Pro x64 SP1)
In the attached screenshot from version 22.214.171.124 under Windows XP x86 it is easy to notice that the Options dialog is missing the item Online Update between Basic IDE Options and OpenCL

BTW: shouldn't the online-update be listed under internet?!?

was fine for the 4.4 releases, but missing a "Online Update" entry in the Tools -> Options menu for 5.0 releases.

Screenshot of Options dialog of LO 126.96.36.199 x86 under Win7 x64
To add to the complexity, when LO 188.8.131.52 x86 is installed under on a Windows x64 system (tested with Win7 Pro x64 SP1) the option is present.
Therefore this is a Win XP only problem OR a LO x86 under Win x86 only problem. Can someone with Win7 (or newer) x86 check this?
This problem causes uncertainty to users, as mentioned in topic
Tested on following x86 builds, XP sp3, Windows 7 sp1, Windows 8.1 and Vista sp2
With my usual "Online Update" optional components deselected -- Windows 7 and 8.1 had no issue and showed the entry in the Tools -> Options menu and the Help menu. But, for Vista sp2 on initial install it did not. Hmmm.
From an Appwiz.cpl launch, do a Change install of the LibreOffice install and select the Modify radio button. From Optional Components select active the "Online Update" item and complete the changes. Relaunch LO 5 and the menu items are there. And, the update dialog runs.
Do the same steps on XP 32-bit--same result, menu items are present and functional.
Don't know why the Online Update is missing on initial install, but if confirmed by other 32-bit XP sp3 users, this seems like a reasonable workaround.
hi every one.
yes, as i mentioned i use windows xp service pack 3 on my laptop.
i downloaded libreoffice 184.108.40.206 and installed it.
but unfortunately, i could not find online update in the libreoffice options!
i downloaded version 220.127.116.11 today and the problem is solved.

No, reverting to 126.96.36.199 solves nothing.
Instead we need to know if the Windows installer work around--as in comment 4-- of doing a Change to LibreOffice 5.0.x and selecting Modify, and reenabling the "Online Update" Optional component is viable for Windows XP sp3 32-bit users.
and about using modify to do our desire changes, i downloadeed and tested more than 12 versions of libreoffice and could not find it when i am installing the program.
this feature that we cand select whether to check for the newer version or not, i only found it in open office!
and in libreoffice its only appeares in the options menu in windows xp before version 5 of libreoffice.

So maybe the bug also occurs on Vista SP2 x86, since your procedure is always the same?

Unfortunately that was not the problem. I also do a Custom Install but I leave the Online Update checked (because I want the component to be installed).
I even tried running Appwiz.cpl, unchecking the Online Update, running LibreOffice and then running Appwiz.cpl again and checking the Online Update option hoping that this would force an install of the module. Unfortunately there was no change.
I believe the priority on this bug should be raised.
No issue with x86 Vista and onward, it is just x86 XP sp3. Sorry for the noise on that.
Narrowed span to 3 weeks between 188.8.131.52 and 184.108.40.206rc builds.
WinDbg runs of the Update Check 220.127.116.11 onward suggest issue is in updchklo.dll and libcurl.dll. cURL had been updated that time frame--but not clear why the GUI menu entry just on XP, would be affected.

thanks so much for your clarification.
today i tested your solution on my laptop with windows xp.
i installed libreoffice 18.104.22.168
while installing, selected custom installation and unchecked all optional components.
then i installed the program.
after that, i tried to test modify option and checked online update.
in tools, options menu i dont see online update.
it appears only in the help menu, but does not work for me!
hope thats help.
thanks again for your help and god bless you.
With Markus's patch for XP libcurl

The Tools -> Options -> LibreOffice -> Check for Updates menu entry still does not appear on XP install.
