I downloaded 3.4 and installed it, could not open if because of a missing dll file. Error message said re-installing might fix it. I re-installed, clicked on "repair" button, and still cannot open the new version--or any of my old Open Office files. The file that it missing is comphelp4MSC.dll. I need help!

Are you still facing this problem with opening up OpenOffice because of a missing dll file?

Please provide feedback as requested and re-test with the
the latest version of OpenOffice - the problem(s) may already be addressed.

You can download Apache OpenOffice 3.4.1 from

I'm leaving this issue in the UNCONFIRMED state for now. But I'll need to move it to RESOLVED/IRREPRODUCIBLE soon if I cannot find a way to reproduce it.
