Hi everyone… I’m the person who asked the question, but was not sure what to do when I found my answer… was I to edit or just reply with an answer…? anyways, I’m replying.
I found a post in the forum that lead me to what I thought might be a solution. So I went to the file in question and left clicked on it and selected “properties”. I was looking to see how the file was associated. The Properties window that came up has, of course, 3 tabs: General/Document Statistics/Details … as I was looking around I clicked the Document Statistics tab and another window came up that read:
This application has requested Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way.
Please contact the application support team for more info.
Then I pressed “ok” and the window shut down, as well as blanking out my destop with a blue screen that lingered for several seconds before returning to the regular desktop mode. Btw, I tried this several times and when the RunTime Error came up, I just had to wait for a minute or so and it would close it and the “properties” window down even if I didn’t hit “ok”.
I guess the file was corrupted. The only thing I could think of was this file was on a cheap OEM brand micro SD card I had installed to expand my memory(You know, the 64 GB ones that only cost $33.), rather than having the files on the actual hardrive of my computer. I came to this conclusion because any LibreOffice file on my hardrive did not exhibit the same problems as the ones on the SD card. So I went to the extreme and “refreshed” my computer (a feature of Windows 8.1), which put me back to Win 8, then I had 88 updates to unstall , and then I installed Win 8.1, followed by the fresh install of LibreOffice 3.3.
Although this process was very time consuming, it not only solved my problem, in the process I discovered how SKYDRIVE really works. I mean I guess I could have just transferred my LibreOffice files to my hardrive, delete the few files that were corrupted and take the micro SD out and throw it in the garbage. But I wanted to make sure by doing it the long way.
Anyways, as a side note, I transferred all my LibreOffice folders/files to my Skydrive folder (the one that you access from the desktop mode by clicking the folder in the taskbar that gets you to your file directory). Then left clicked the folders I wanted to have access to offline, and clicked the option “Make available offline”. I now have my folders/files in the skydrive cloud and well as available offline and when I alter any file, it automatically updates the change in the cloud, making it available to all my other computers/tablet/devices. I was even able to create a “tile” shortcut to the skydrive folders I wanted.
