Error after fresh install

I have encountered an error when performing a fresh install
with the German version on Windows 7 64-bit (see attachment).

It seems that the error is related to the French dictionary (bundled
with the German binary) when the profile is created. After the
installation the dictionary is marked as inactive in the Extension
Manager with an "unknown state".

Same problem with French binaries (and bundled French dictionary)

On some Windows systems it shows the error box on some AOO dies silently
and has to be killed with taskmanager.
Comment 2 Matthias Seidel 2020-05-19 17:18:06 UTC
Additional note, installing these extensions also result in a hanging AOO:

 - Oracle Report Builder
 - AOO PDF Import

While testing Dev-m2 (German) on macOS I experienced the same issue described in comment #1.

At the first start AOO hangs after the setup screen. It has to be killed.
The next start is successful, however the French dictionary is not registered correctly.
Comment 4 Matthias Seidel 2020-10-20 14:59:02 UTC
The French dictionary tries to integrate a "Dictionary Switcher" into the AOO menus via a Python script.

This is where it possibly hangs.
