Issues with installing under all versions of MS Windows starting

Postby mikedean » Thu Feb 17, 2011 10:00 pm

I have found that Openoffice won't start particularly after I have been opening and closing several files. I found that by looking in Task Manager, in processes, that there many instances running of soffice.bin*32 and soffice.exe*32, perhaps as many as eight. I found that by killing all of these that Openoffice will start. I am running 64 bit Vista Home edition.

Can anyone suggest what's going on and how this behaviour can be curbed.

Indeed, there are several topics about that, see that one for example: OOo hangs with multiple soffice.exe in Task Manager. It was under 3.2 so I was hoping it would be better with 3.3. you're the first one to report it under 3.3 I think. I haven't experienced that yet with 3.3. Nothing to do I guess. Perhaps switch the Quickstarter off if activated.
AOO 4.1.5 on Xubuntu 18.04 and on Windows 7 (with winPenPack port).
