LibreOffice 5.0.2 and 5.0.3 both crash installing fonts

It gives:

Error opening file for writing:

~\LibreOffice\App\Fonts\Caladea-Bold.ttf
Click to Abort . . . .

Same for many of the other fonts. (I stopped clicking the skip button after awhile.)

Thanks,

Permissions, full path

Neither our launcher out libreoffice tries to write. Only the windows api to temporarily add a font system wide is called. Were permissions somehow changed? Running as a different user? Anything running at the os level that would interfere?

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

RE: LibreOffice Crashes on Font Install

John,

Thanks for your reply. It is always possible that changes were made I'm unaware of as I'm on a corporate machine. It did work previously but suddenly stopped. Bummer. I was using it because it was not nearly as invasive as XL about changing cell formats against my will.

Thanks again,

Are you ABSOLUTELY sure there is no absolute truth?

Udate:

I had been running it on a network drive before it stopped working. I redeployed it on a local drive and it installed just fine.

Thanks again,
