Hi, My system is windows 8.1 64bit and i was running Libre office without a problem... Yesterday I update Libre office to . From that momment when i tried to update a document that i was working with the Writer i received the error: fatal error osl::Thread:create fail. Except that the version was too unstable... as copy paste didn't work.

I uninstalled it and re-installed the 4.4.2 version. The problem is the same , but now it shows more frequently... just clicking on Enter to have a new line and the error window pops up... Clicking on Save as... the save window does not show... I played with the permission allowing all users to modify the doc but the problem remains.... I tried to open a new file but there was not any problem, or fatal error....

What can i do?

Please help me as it is a report on a project that I had done and i should deliver it as soon as possible......

I tried to open the same file in another pc with win XP as operating system and libre office and i can work on the doc...

Hi I've keep getting exactly the same message. I wiped the previous portable installation and now have Libre Office 6.2.5 portable installed. The problem continues. Cant be certain but issues started with either 6.2.3/4 I have an Asus i7 16gb ram. Have many progs open and browser pages as well. Trouble happens mostly when I open a second file to transfer data. I insert rows in a large calc sheet (17mb) and paste it in. I've monitored and cleaned memory to see if that was a problem, but it doesn't seem to be as it happened on low and hi physical memory useage. Mostly happens on trying to save but is not exclusively the save. I suppose I can backtrack to an early version that works but hoping to keep going with the updates

I've since used a windows10 intalled Libre Office on the same files, version (64x), without issues. So this leaves the possibility that the problem lies with the portable version or both version after .

Finally, I found the solution. Uninstalling and re-installing the Libre office did not deleted the old user data... I think an incompatibility on them caused the problem , as uninstalling the program, deleting the user data and re-instaling it, solved the problem...
