hello, I have a problem with libreoffice when try to open an odt file on a network share.

Thi is the scenario:

client: Win 7 64bit

server Win 2008 Enterprise

if I open the file from \ \ server \ folder \ namefile.odt

the file does not open

if I copy the file locally or on a network drive mapped, the file is opened correctly

Can anyone help me, thank you.

This is a common problem that's come up with LO I have no idea if the workaround I found will work on a windows machine as I stopped using those years ago, but check out my answer here:

and follow the link at the bottom that I gave to where I found the workaround - if the workaround I found doesn't work then that link may lead you to more information that will help you with your particular operating system.

Hope this helps, good luck!
