Recently switched from using OpenOffice to LibreOffice.. Since switching I am having all sorts of issues..

  1. LO often says the file is corrupt when trying to open it..
  2. LO sometimes "repairs" the file but looses conditional formatting etc.. other times says it can't be repaired..
  3. LO often crashes windows explorer when trying to open/repair the files..

There are time that files will open just fine..

I am seeing this on 3 different Windows 7 Laptops that are all access in the same files via a mapped drive..

Anyone else seeing this? or have any suggestions on how to fix it?

Have done it so that hopefully solves the explorer crashes, anyone have any ideas on the corruption problems?

I you have problems to reopen with LO 3.6.1 a spreadsheet with conditional formattings saved with LO 3.6.1, try to reinstall LO 3.5.6. In that case the problem is probably related to this bug: and others marked as duplicates and having the same root cause. Hopefully, this bug will be fixed in LO 3.6.2.

AFAIK, you can remove a bundle extension by launching the installer in repair mode.
