Check that there are no ethnic characters in the file path, or spaces, or that the total path and filename are not longer than 255 characters.

As an experiment, try, from a console (command prompt)
Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
soffice "/the/full/path/to/the/file/Filename.odt"


Note the quotes.
