[Libreoffice] LibreOffice 3.5RC2 installation on Windows

When installing LibreOffice 3.5RC2 on Windows 7 with LibreOffice 3.4.4 
already installed. The installer checks the system before initiating the 
installation and then complains about a LibreOffice or LibreOffice 
Quickstart instance running (possibly by another user) and advises to 
close any LibreOffice 3.4 instances.

However no LibreOffice instances are running at all. And there are no 
other users on this test system anyway. So the check is doing an incorrect 
test. Even Sysinternals Process Explorer does not see any LibreOffice or 
unidentified processes, so I am pretty sure the installer is making the 
wrong conclusion, or providing me with an incorrect error message.

After uninstalling the LibreOffice 3.4.4, the 3.5RC2 installer does not 
complain and proceeds with the installation as expected.
