  1. Thanks for your post. Like you, I cannot imagine...

    Thanks for your post. Like you, I cannot imagine that behaviour ever being appropriate and welcome, but I suspect that in each case the issue is better dealt with by resolving the root cause within...

    Further update:

    For any who may be interested, a discussion of this bug can be found on this page.

    Cheers,

    UPDATE:

    Version 5.1.1 had the same issue, so after posting in the LO Forum, I did some searching on the Ask.LibreOffice.org site and found this discussion of the issue. It appears that the issue...
  4. Thanks for the reminder about LO's strange...

    Thanks for the reminder about LO's strange versioning system. I remember having seen that in the past, but I had always assumed that the "Check for Update" function within LO would of course take me...
  5. It will have to be just on this computer for now,...

    It will have to be just on this computer for now, as I don't have the time to muck about with multiple computers at the moment. I'll update LO, but if the problem is still not fixed, I think my next...
  6. At the moment, the only experience I have of this...

    At the moment, the only experience I have of this issue is on my W7 Pro 64-Bit desktop, running LO Version 5.0.5.2 (64-Bit), on which I do most of my day-to-day computer work. I normally only use...
  7. Well, it appears that I may have celebrated too...

    Well, it appears that I may have celebrated too soon. While LO appears to open in the foreground and with focus when I start LO from scratch, I've now had occasions when - with LO open, but...
  8. Hi, David, Thanks for your posts. Like you,...

    Hi, David,

    Thanks for your posts. Like you, if I just start up Libre Office directly, I find that the LO window opens in the foreground and with the focus, but if I click on a LO file in Windows...
  9. Hi, Rick, Many thanks for your kindness in...

    Hi, Rick,

    Many thanks for your kindness in including the Zip file. I was comfortable in making the change directly without the file, but it was very thoughtful of you to provide it.

    I changed...
  10. Thanks for that link. It started me searching...

    Thanks for that link. It started me searching again using new search terms and I came across this page which appears to answer my problem. However, as it involves changing the Registry - which I...
  11. Hi, Berton, Usually neither Windows Explorer...

    Hi, Berton,

    Usually neither Windows Explorer (in W7 Pro) nor the LO document are full-screen, so I can see the newly-opened LO document appear behind Windows Explorer, at which point I do exactly...
  12. How to get a Libre Office document to open as the active window in the foreground

    I've used Libre Office for some time now and like it, but there is one small issue I'd like to resolve. When I open an existing LO document or spreadsheet, say by clicking on it in Windows Explorer,...
  13. Sorry, Microsoft; I want a divorce

    Having owned DOS and Windows computers for over 30 years, I'm pretty invested in MS Windows and the software that runs on it, but some of us with grey hair actually remember when "privacy" used to...
  14. Hi, Bruce, Thanks for your informative and...

    Hi, Bruce,

    Thanks for your informative and helpful post. You have confirmed what I thought might be the case, namely, that if I use the "Remove XP Mode" procedure, I will not just remove the...
  15. Hi, Paul, Thanks for your post. To answer...

    Hi, Paul,

    Thanks for your post. To answer your question, I use both EaseUS ToDo Backup Free and AOMEI Backupper Free, the former more than the latter. Having had two HDDs die on me in the past,...
  16. Well, I've finally managed to find the answer to...

    Well, I've finally managed to find the answer to (almost all of) my own question, so I thought I'd post it here in case others are trying to do the same thing. It's amazing how, when you change just...
  17. Hi, Coochin, Thanks for your suggestion. I...

    Hi, Coochin,

    Thanks for your suggestion. I read the forum post at that link, but the poster who offered the "solution" didn't seem very knowledgeable or certain about what he was suggesting. I...
  18. How can I properly uninstall Windows XP Mode from W7?

    When I first installed W7 Pro 64-bit, I had some legacy software I needed to run on XP, so I set up and ran Windows XP Mode successfully for some time. I have now replaced the legacy software, and...
  19. Thanks for that clean boot suggestion, Coochin;...

    Thanks for that clean boot suggestion, Coochin; that did the trick. When I clicked on Setup.exe after the clean boot, it instantly called up the InstallShield wizard and the program loaded smoothly....
  20. Interesting thought. I disconnected my router,...

    Interesting thought. I disconnected my router, turned off my AV (Microsoft Security Essentials), and tried getting Setup.exe to work, first without any compatibility tweaks, then under XP SP3 and XP...
  21. A glimmer of hope?

    Hi, dg1261,

    Thanks for checking on the Compatibility screen. That's exactly what I get, but the #%#%! InstallShield never appears.

    However, I have had one unusual glimmer of hope - perhaps....
  22. I appreciate the thought, Rick, but I've tried...

    I appreciate the thought, Rick, but I've tried that more times than I can count, and no matter how I configure it (with or without Admin privileges, various compatibility modes), I just can't get it...
  23. I just had an afterthought: When you say...

    I just had an afterthought: When you say "Win7x64," is that W7 Professional, as this installation is, and if not, would that make any difference? I shouldn't think so, but I'm just trying hard to...
  24. Wow, thanks for all your research! I don't blame...

    Wow, thanks for all your research! I don't blame you for not wanting to be out on Black Friday, though; too many nutjobs punching each other out over discounted underwear!

    Regarding UAC, I'd been...

    Well, I have (minimal) progress, sort of. When I now click the autorun.exe file, either on the CD or in the copied CD installation files on my W7 Desktop, I now get the following response, asking me...
