2012-04-17 14:36:59 +0200 answered a question Writer 3.5 keeps crashing

I run LibreOffice on two computers, and on one of them, I experience frequent crashes. I had problems opening spreadsheets based on a specific template, but this was fixed by deleting the user profile. However, no it crashes on a frequent basis using both calc and writer. Only use it for Base, while I tend to use OpenOffice for the other applications while I wait for updates. (On OpenOffice I experience frequent problems with OpenOffice Base, that was the main reason why I installed LibreOffice in the first place...)

The computer were LO crashes runs Windows XP, while the other one runs Windows 7. However, I use LO far more frequently on the XP computer (office) than on the Windows 7 (home computer).

I tried, but I got interrupted in the process. However, the problem seems to be solved after recreating the profile.

Thanks to L-user for suggesting renaming the profile user. I did, and a new profile was created, and the file now opens OK!

Sorry for the late response.

Anyway, a spreadsheet template which causes the crash can be downloaded from http://dl.dropbox.com/u/297044/mal.ots

Files based on this template also makes LO crash. I'm running version 3.5.1.2.

BTW, I was not able to get the attach feature to work, I tried Opera, Firefox and IE...

Kind regards KML

I've got a spreadsheet (ods-file) that crashes libre office calc (or more precisely, all open libre office programs are closed) instantly when I try to open it. The same ods-file, opens without any trouble in Open Office calc.

Restoring the file also crashes libre office.

Also, I was able to open the spreadsheet in an earlier version of LibreOffice. (Not sure exactly what version I used before I upgraded to 3.5)

If anyone wants to have a look at the spreadsheet, I think I would be able to remove/replace sensitive data and send the file.
