I had LibreOffice 4.3.1, but it started giving me an issue where I could not open macros for editing without it crashing on me. I uninstalled it and installed I can edit macros again, but I can no longer use the following command:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\LibreOffice 4\program\scalc.exe" -convert-to csv:"Text - txt - csv (StarCalc)":59,34,0,1,1/1 "some path\Test.xls" -outdir "some path"

Per the help prompt that comes up on occasion:

--convert-to output_file_extension[:output_filter_name[:output_filter_options]] [--outdir ouput_dir] files

It used to work, but now it does not. The help dialog that comes up still says the same thing, but when I run the command, it just opens a blank spreadsheet. Nothing is converted. When I save from Calc itself, I can select to edit filter settings through the Save As GUI, so...I assume the filter is there. I just want to check to make sure.

So I installed the older version(s) and I still can't do it. All I did was uninstall the old program. It left behind a libreoffice 4 folder in program files, which I deleted. I assume when I reinstall, python and all the other dependencies should have been reinstalled, but it still does not want to cooperate. Do I need to reboot? This sucks, because a lot of which I have been working on for my company's MsO to LO switch depended on converting several files to CSV.
