[Solved] Can't open old OpenOffice 4.1.1 document

Postby rdcast » Mon Nov 06, 2017 3:04 pm

I created an OpenOffice 4.11 document a few years ago. I access it regularly on the old laptop used at the time. To better facilitate the use of the old document, I've been trying to open it on a new laptop using OpenOffice 4.1.4 but it won't open it. So I searched for a download of OpenOffice 4.11 and only found OpenOffice 4.1.1 but it too failed to open the old document.

Any help on how to open this old document file would be much appreciated.

Thank You,
Robert

What message do you get or what happens when it doesn't open?
Apache OpenOffice 4.1.4 on Xubuntu 16.04.03 (mostly 64 bit version) and infrequently on Win2K/XP

Dear RoryOF,

Thanks for your fast response. I had to bring the old document file over to this laptop again to find out what the error message was that you asked for. Now OpenOffice 4.1.4 opened it fine. It must have had to do with problems I was having with Windows 10 that a recent update fixed. Also, I was mistaken about the original OpenOffice version was 4.11, no such thing. Indeed, it was 4.1.1 :shock:

Thank you for causing me to reevaluate the problem,
Robert

The problem as stated in this post had been unexpectedly resolved through the installation of a recent Windows 10 update. Thank you for considering my concerns.

All the best,
