install LMMS 1.2.0-RC3 -> microsoft words 2010 broken

Having trouble with LMMS? Ask about it here.
This is somehow a bug report. (not quite a question)
It contains symptom and way to reproduce.

Yesterday, I have installed LMMS beta 1.2.0-RC3 from https://lmms.io/download/#windows on 2 computers.

Issue 1: Microsoft Words broken

Today, both computers couldn't open Microsoft Words 2010. (double click and nothing happen)
Still, both can open Microsoft Excel 2010.

First, I clicked at Control Panel > Programs and Features > Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2010
to repair, but it said OSETUP.DLL cannot be loaded. (same as https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Fo ... roprevious)

Then, I did a system restore on one of the computer. It went back 2 days.
The restored computer can use Microsoft Words again.

Because of curiosity, I revisited the Control Panel.
I clicked Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2010, but the OSETUP.DLL error didn't happen anymore.

I believe LMMS installer somehow corrupt Microsoft Office. This issue doesn't happen for LMMS 1.1.3.

Specification : I am using Windows 7 64bits, desktop.

Issue 2: stretched pop up start menu

There is also another issue that appear only while I have LMMS 1.2 on my computer.
Start menu is stretched out abnormally.

Here is the normal case :-

I very much not believe so.
Osetup.dll is a file that is needed by Microsoft Office to install correctly. It is a DLL file (Dynamic Link Library) that is also used once Office is installed to control plugins and other add-ons that Office uses.
Lmms does not delete or move any files in any other directories. If that file was missing, it has to be related to something else.

What i think is happening here is that you have a 2000K+ screen, and the screen is the issue. Others using RC2 have not reported this, so it looks to me as if you have a specific local hw issue

Do you sleep your pc?
If so, stop.
Sleep is a horrible feature in windows, and all kind of mess accumulate. Cold-Restart pc once every day

But ofcause, if you have detected a new real issue, we need to address it, by i really doubt this is an lmms related issue.

Reproducing will be impossible. Only a clone / ghost of all your sw and an identical hw, would be valid.
