32 bit & 64 bit compatibility

Postby jayem1 » Mon Mar 14, 2011 2:29 am

I have just tried to open a document containing two tables created in OO3.2 on a Vista 32 bit system on my Windows7 64bit machine and all I get for a single page document is three pages of the # sign. I tried removing and reinstalling OO3.3 with the same result
The same document opens perfectly on my Win7 32bit netbook
Just tried running in XP compatability mode with the same result

It seems there may be a 32/64 bit compatability problem here, has anybody else had this problem?

If you saw all ######### signs then the file is corrupt. See viewtopic.php?f=6&t=17677. Were these files .doc format of native .odt format?

How did you move the file between the computers? A USB stick? If so, do it again, but this time make sure you use the correct USB eject discipline and don't be too hasty in removing your USB stick.
