[Solved] Error loading BASIC of document file

Postby saskatchewan » Sun Jun 15, 2008 8:35 pm

Whenever I try to open Open Office I get an Error loading BASIC of document file. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the sofware but the problem persists.

I am running A DuoCore Pentium with Windows XP.

OK, now we know that you are using Windows and stir up your hard disk to solve obscure problems.
:?: What is the exact error message :?:
:?: Does the problem occur with all documents :?:
:?: Does the problem occur with new documents (File>New>...) :?:
:?: If the problem occurs with one file or a few files. Can you tell us some details about the file(s). Are we guessing about Word documents :?:
:?: What is your office version (Menu:Help>About...) :?:

Quick fix: rename your OOo user profile (\Documents and settings\<user>\Application data\OpenOffice.org2), OOo will create a new one.

The first message is:

Error loading BASIC of \document file:///C:?Documents%20and%20Settings/shawn%20halter/Applications%20Data?OpenOffice.org2/user/unmo_packages/cache/uno_packages/8B.tmp_/ConvertTextToNumber-1.0.0.oxt/CT2N/script.xlb:
General Error.
General input/output error.
Then I click OK and it gives me the same message again.
So I click OK

Then it opens.
I am Running XP.

Have you read the Forum Survival Guide?

Please don't post duplicate questions. I've marked the other two threads for deletion.

Deleting the /8B.tmp_/ConvertTextToNumb folder should do it. Extensions are sometimes messed up by upgrades.

I am having a hard time finding the:

/8B.tmp_/ConvertTextToNumb

Any suggestions on how I can find it?

Make your file browser display the hidden files and folders and follow the path given in the error message you've posted above (%20 are for spaces).

That could be the reason for the error message. Call menu:Tools>Extensions... and remove the "Text-to-Columns" add-in. If this is not possible for some reason, shut down the office including the quick-starter and rename/move your profile C:\Documents and Settings\shawn halter\Applications Data\OpenOffice.org2\ as Hagar suggested.

That did the trick!!

Thanks

However, for some reason the OpenOffice icon does not show up in the bottom right corner of my screen. Is that because it is not in my startup?

See in menu Tools>Options>OOo>Memory (or General, don't remember exactly) and check the Quickstarter box.

What exactly did the trick? Could you remove any reminders of the text-to-columns add-on or did you move the profile folder?

For what its worth, I have Vista and I had this same problem. I solved it by: 1. Making sure all hidden files were shown. 2. Going to AppData/Roaming/OpenOffice.org 3. I tried to delete this file but, was unable to, because Vista would not allow me to take authorization of this file. I used a utility called Unlocker which allowed me to delete this file. 4. Then I reinstalled OpenOffice and this took care of this nagging problem.

Hope this helps someone
