The following command will result to nothing. No error, no file. There is no instance of soffice running in taskmanager before im starting (Computer ist restartet fresh) The Command work fine with Libre Office 5

"C:\Program Files (x86)\LibreOffice\program\soffice.exe" --convert-to pdf f:\Test.docx --outdir f:

The Paths are existing und f: is writeable for all.

Any ideas? Thx Tom

Well - f: is not a proper absolute path - for Windows, it's a "current path on drive f:". Possibly the current path on f: is not the one you expect.

f:\ is the correct path of root directory on drive f:, and starting from 6.1.3, it's allowed to end path with backslash on Windows (tdf#120249). Previously, using f:/ also would work.

Not sure it's the real problem here, though.

There's tdf#112536, which prevents correct output to console. It's fixed in 6.3; you could use a daily build to test the problem with normal output (note that to have that normal output, you need to use ...\soffice, not ...\soffice.exe to pick

Sigh. Have you read my comment carefully? The problem that soffice doesn't output to console is only fixed in not-yet-released 6.3 - so the only way to guarantee the output is downloading and installing daily build. Install it temporarily - to debug the problem; when you nailed it down (and hopefully fixed), you'd return to a released version.

Now i get the following error:

Error: Please verify input parameters... (SfxBaseModel::impl_store <file:///f://Test.pdf> failed: 0x31c(Error Area:Io Class:NotExists Code:28))
"C:\Program Files (x86)\LibreOfficeDev 6\program\soffice" --headless --convert-to pdf f:\Test.docx --outdir f:\

Does it mean, that soffice cat read the file, but if i openit by hand, it works. Thx 4u help

And how does this differ if you use simple f: instead of f:\?

Does it work if you save not to root, but to some subdirectory?

Looks like a problem with processing roots. Will check if you file a bug report.
