2021-05-22 00:44:36 +0200 marked best answer Win10 updated yesterday - Libre Office causes it to crash

Win10 updated yesterday. I was running v6.4.7 of LO and it opened an A4 doc OK, but when I tried to open a second (A5) doc it blue-screened. Went into Windows Update and screen froze with the "cog" - so closed it from taskbar. Ran DSIM and was the able to run Windows Update. More updates found so installed them. After Win10 re-updated thought it best to also update Libre Office so installed v7.0.5 Tried to open the A5 doc again and Win10 Blue screened again. Each restart after blue screen seems to be OK until I try to load the doc (mind you I haven't tried anything else in between)

Have copied the doc to an XP PC running v5.4.7 and the document opens OK. Made a copy by saving with a different name and copied back to Win10 PC - copied file also caused BSOD

After restarting the Win10 PC following the BSOD Libre Office reports that another version is already running when I try to load it.

Got going again and created, edited, saved A5 doc OK using text copied from pdf. Tried again to load the older A5 doc and BSOD again with "STOP CODE APC INDEX MISMATCH". After restart Libre Office had lost all reference to previous use and prompted as if it was the first time being used. Can reload the doc created with v7 but not the earlier docs.

If I recreate the old doc in v7 then I can re-load it ... but not the original created in v6 Solution?

Thanks, but this doesn't seem to be a "solution" just a work-around until the underlying cause is fixed. Wouldn't feel h
