Software Exception error on Windows 7 with Libreoffice 6.0.2

Anyone else seen this problem?

This is my first workstation I'm installing 6.0.2 on, This is in a
Windows Domain (Server 2016).

The following error occurs only when the user (same thing happens for
both Standard and Admin accounts) logs off, and only if the Quickstarter
is running. If the user quite the Quickstarter before logging off there
is no error:

"The exception unknown software exception (0x40000015) occurred in the
application at location 0xef7599df.

Click OK to terminate the program."

Clicking OK allows the logoff process to continue.

The only option currently is to not run the Quickstarter. I'm wondering
now just how much faster it allows Libreoffice to start and if it worth
it to continue enabling it at all.

Not only not worth enabling, but best to perform a custom installation and
to not install it.  It has been removed from the Linux builds a LibreOffice
6.0

Microsoft dropped OSA at 2003 build of its Office products, and at Windows 7
they introduced the whole Jump List infrastructure with Jump List pinning to
Start Menu and Taskbar--elminating any advantage to enabling the
Quickstarter instance (and of pre loading a soffice.bin).

In reality LibreOffice has had no need of it for Windows 7 onward--and as
you've experienced it can cause issues.

This reminded me to go ahead and poke the UX community with  tdf#116142 --
Remove Quickstarter from Windows builds
<https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=116142>   which would
finally see this "anti-feature" go away.

Excellent - but are the steps to do this documented somewhere??

Thanks very much for the info!
