Re: Open Office crashes ?

2024-02-15 Thread William Morder


This may or may not help, as I am running OpenOffice on a Linux machine; 
however, I did have that same problem. 

First thing for me was to make sure that I had purged my system of any 
competing application (notably, LibreOffice). I am uncertain how to go about 
this on your machine, as I haven't used other systems in a very long time. 

Also, it might not matter so much with a different system. Most Linux systems 
install LibreOffice by default, and moreover keep trying to uninstall 
OpenOffice and to install LibreOffice instead. So that part may or may not 
apply to your situation, but it's worth considering. 

Second is the actual trick that I used to get OpenOffice to run without 
crashing. After trying to start OpenOffice by clicking to open, and by trying 
to open various office documents with OpenOffice, it occurred to me to try a 
plain text document (that is, with the extension .txt). 

I just clicked on the plain text document, and used the "open with" dialog, 
then chose OpenOffice, and bingo! it worked. It's been running without a 
hitch ever since.

Re: Open Office crashes ?

2024-02-15 Thread Krotka
Maybe you are waiting too short, and he (computer, system) does not manage
to load everything?
After turning on the computer, wait a few minutes after you think you have
finished charging all drivers, processes, etc.

Po polsku:
Może za krótko czekasz, i on (komputer, system) nie zdąża wszystkiego
załadować?
Po włączeniu komputera poczekaj kilka minut po tym, jak ci się wydaje, że
już skończył ładować wszystkie sterowniki, procesy itp.

Robert,

Thank you. That helped a lot. I had looked in Roaming and didn't see it,
but maybe because it was all white. My File Manager is dark background.

I have renamed OpenOffice to OpenOffice.old and opened it, and it didn't
crash. I didn't have many settings, so I'm not going to stress over it.
I'll have to find the files I had open, but that's another issue.

Thank you for providing me with information relevant to Open Office. I love

supportive, mail list.

Writing '%AppData%' is meant to be instead of specifying 
'C:\Users\username\AppData'.

I think that 'OO Software > OO ShutUp10' is related to 'O ShutUp10', some

Open Office crashes immediately after it loads the pages.
I'm not 100% positive that this is only an Open Office problem. I'm running
Windows 10 and this is Open Office 4.1.13.

My desktop computer was refusing to load the Start menu, so I rebooted it.
It froze and didn't do anything for about 45 minutes. I hit the power
button and restarted it again. It restarted and ran updates. My friends
advised me to run a check and fix program. SFC whic is System File Checker
> sfc /scannow. It came up with a list of things that were wrong, but it

loaded fine and opened the pages and then crashed! It's done it over and
over.

I've heard two possiblities. One is a hardware problem, but the computer
seems fine and is running on an SSD.

The other is resetting the Open Office User profile. I had problems with
that. I don't think my computer matches the description in the directions.

Re: Open Office Crashes

2023-04-21 Thread Joan Bagley
 Att:  Shari Lynn Smith
Thanks for your very detailed instructions to be able to open my documents and 
to find them after they are saved.  However, I have 4.1.6 (not 14) and I wonder 
if I should download the 4.1.14?   When you say to   'quit' open office, the 
only option close to that would be to delete.  I'm afraid to delete it, as I 
have journals on my computer back 35 years, and they are all in .odt format.  
When I open windows explorer, I did not see the folders app to 'view hidden 
folders' but I did "view hidden items".  If you advise me to install Apache 
Open Office 4.1.14, should I uninstall 4.1.6 first?  
I've been typing from a handwritten journal 1983-87--and yesterday I retyped 7 
pages that were lost from the last two days, and right after I saved it, I 
tried to open it, and the only one by that name that would open was missing a 
whole month of 7 typed pages.  In an effort to open it, I now have 6  folders 
of the same name in 'recent files' and they all tell me 'The requested 
operation requires elevation."  
I have been unable to find my user information.  but maybe if I have the later 
edition it would work.  Again, thank you so much--I've really made a mess of 
things in my new computer, and need a lesson on organizing.  I'm having trouble 
seeing what is on the C drive and what is on my flash drive--I'd like to move 
all the flash drive docs over..  
II await your advice.

I know you said you removed it, but make sure you're also installing the

I too get frustrated sometimes, but then I remind myself it's free and

If the above doesn't help, try to remember exactly what you were doing

Are you in Cal, Writer, and what was the last action you took. It could 
be a bug.
