[Solved] Cannot launch 4.1.5 on High Sierra 10.13.4

Hi. When I try to run Open Office 4.1.5 on High Sierra 10.13.4 the app quits immediately. I have thrashed the OpenOffice folder in /Library and reinstalled it, but no joy.

This is the error message in the Apple Crash window:

I managed to solve it by deleting the following and emptying the trash - I had to do it twice but at the second attempt it worked.
