[Solved] Screen 'repair openoffice-document' won't disappear

Postby Schorpioen » Wed Apr 16, 2008 11:46 am


I'm new to this forum. My native language is Dutch. So if I write something that looks a bit strange ...

Some time ago I installed OOo V 2.3.1 on a MS Vista machine. Yesterday I tried to make some changes to a Micorsoft PowerPoint presentation. While saving the job, it looked like the computer hanged, and I stopped the proces using Windows Task Manager.
From then on, every time I start Impress or any other OOo application, I get a screen 'repair openoffice-document', click to repair, followed by 'repairing failed'.
I still had the original file, so I deleted the file I was working on, but the problem stays. Every time I open a OOo application, I get the fault-screen.
Now I uninstalled V2.3.1 and I installed V2.4, but the screen 'repair openoffice-document' just won't dispappear.
Can someone make it disappear ?

Many thanks in advance,

I noticed this issue once at a user in our company, and the solution was to just Cancel the repairing of the document.. OpenOffice never bothered him again with the repair window..

I guess you've already tried to cancel the recovery and the process still pops up. If so, see here: [Solved] Stuck in Document Recovery.

Thanks to add '[Solved]' at beginning of your first post title (edit button) if your issue has been fixed.

That was quick, and was indeed the solution to my problem.

Thank you, Tribio and Hagar de l'Est.
