On windows 10 (all updates current) using LibreOffice 188.8.131.52 (x64), Calc now consistently crashes under any of these conditions:
- closing a single spreadsheet with the intent to keep the application open. In this case LibreOffice stops working, and notifies Microsoft of the problem
- Closing the application with an open and saved spreadsheet. Same as above
- Closing any document with a calc sheet and a writer document open. In this case it is a fast exit.
After any of these crashes, every time LibreOffice re-opens it starts the recovery process, which (depending upon the circumstances) leads to either an endless loop of manual crash and recovery, or an endless loop of LibreOffice attempting to open, but resulting in a sequence of fast appear/disappear splash screens, which then requires killing the application in task manager - furthermore there will usually be several cases of LibreOffice open in the task manager when this happens. Killing individual instances, one at a time, will usually result in a successful open once only one instance remains in task manager.
This situation began after updating to version 7 (I’ve updated now twice, to 184.108.40.206, hoping it was a bug that got fixed).
This is coupled with OLE sheets not being displayed in other applications, even though the application reports that there is a linked sheet - it’s just not visible. I don’t know if those two things are in any way related, but for now I’d be happy if LibreOffice would just open and run without crashing.
Any suggestions for what to look for in trying to troubleshoot this?
