Sorry, best I can do in a short message... hope its understandable.... if not ask Questions!

Not sure I understand part of your response. Those Location you did mention should be ok. As I precaution I would make a temp folder in c:\ drive or on your desktop and copy the those files in "My Documents" "My Downloads" to do the temp folder I had you make. You don't have to worry about those attached to emails that were sent in the windows live email program.

No easy one button save for all those documents/spreadsheets/presentations etc etc made over years....

Question: Will all these be deleted?? when I go to 4.1.0 and how (now I have just two backups but I did not get the AOMEI recovery disk done yet (its an open question here if you got an answer)
If you uninstall OpenOffice, you will not lose personal files, it does not touch anything than its program files:
https://forum.openoffice.org/en/foru...p?f=10&t=40918
Files may lose their icon though, cause the program they were associated too is gone.

(I could see a potential problem if they both use similar extensions and the programs get confused about which documents were created or can be edited by each program.
Yes OpenOffice and Libreoffice will live togheter just fine, both install onto their own program directory and have their own settings:
https://forum.openoffice.org/en/foru...hp?f=5&t=65361
The only conflict i keep reading about is when using 'OOo extensions manager', but i am not sure this conflict still exists and it breaks nothing, a simple uninstall of either programs fixes.

or is it????
You can have only one program associated to a extension at a time, if you want to run other programs, right-click on the file and choose 'Open With'.

I have had terrible experiences when another word processor died, before I could upgrade all the documents to a "odd"? I forgot now form that can be opened by many word processors....so since I've been unable to re-open or use Open Office for months now----how am I to re-save all the documents over again in the new format for use by Libre Office (that is if it has to be transformed to be read/resaved/ reaccessed again)
As far as i know, the files generated by OpenOffice are very similiar to Libreoffice.

I recommend though choosing to save files as Word if you want to retain compatibility with new and old versions of Word.
Choose 'Libreoffice' > 'Tools' > 'Options' > 'Load/Save' > 'General'
Set in 'DocumentType' set the options as below:
  • 'Word' > 'Microsoft Word 97/2000/XP/2003'
  • 'Spreadsheet' > 'Microsoft Excel 97/2000/XP/2003'
  • 'Presentation' > 'Microsoft Powerpoint 97/2000/XP/2003'
Microsoft Word has rather bad compability with ODF files.

New Problems (same old thread) JRE is not working on Libre Office

Hi Everyone!

Status Report:

Downloaded Libre Office (Latest version 4.4.1.2 ) and installed it successfully.

I opened up the database to begin... let it choose whatever standard items it wanted to---registered with Libre Office (Ok, its just a test database, nothing personal yet in it) and...

I received the following warnings and error messages.

Java Runtime Environment is defective for using Open Office on x64-jre-runtime-error-libre-office-too-1-ps17987.jpg

Java Runtime Environment is defective for using Open Office on x64-jre-runtime-error-libre-office-too-2-ps17985.jpg

Java Runtime Environment is defective for using Open Office on x64-jre-runtime-error-libre-office-5-ps17990.jpg



Of course I went to Tools Options Advanced, etc

Guess what? Only ONE Adobe JRE is listed....

Selecting it still does not fix the problem!

I have not been able to successfully fix the Open Office JRE Runtime Error problem!
I was told Libre Office will not have the JRE problem that Open Office had so I could use it!
I'm now without the database program...

Why can't my Spreadsheet in Libre Office be saved in Microsoft Excel version??
Why not???
See Screenshots below when I tired to do this.
Where do I find the differences ????
What is actually lost if I attempt to save it??

[QUOTE=Midori;3012231Microsoft Word has rather bad compability with ODF files.[/QUOTE]

The information about Libre Office on the multiple windows or in their manual was not clear as to what is lost if I did it

And as I said before, when trying to share ODF Open Office 3.3 over the years with others who ONLY have and ONLY want to have Microsoft Office programs--- (I can't afford a new one)---they complain that the opened document is terrible! A mess! Can't read or see documents/spreadsheets etc using Microsoft Office versions they have....

It is NICER that Libre Office has settings to save in those Microsoft Office formats....

But after I worked to get everything just "right" to save it in that format is problem!!! as I can't see how it will look on Microsoft viewer not having a working one... (My student freebie edition expired, and you know Microsoft protects itself with those expiring product keys etc)

So where do I go now???

Don't mis read this!
I like Libre Office,
will have to learn it so I'm using it like I did Open Office (Never knew about he Apache Office story etc so never upgraded to it)...
Appreciate everyone's help as I begin to learn all the new problems with using Libre Office

Again.... last line of post..
If it is not good to combine this post with my old Open Office one (as it was here I learned of Libre Office)

I can set up a brand new Thread
With Libre Office in the title so others on the Internet/Googling can find it and find out what the answer is as this thread is only indexed to Open Office....

Thanks!!

Java is owned by Oracle, not Adobe .

Anyhow, Libreoffice does not need Java for its main programs [Write-Calc-Pres-Draw,etc], but does for 'Base', a email send program and some small things almost nobody uses.
What features absolutely require Java ? - Ask LibreOffice
.
I have tested a clean install of Libreoffice and Java 8.40 32-bit and they function correctly here. Try removing and installing the newest java 32-bit.

Doc and many other file formats of Microsoft are not fully documentated [Thus had to be most likely reverse engineered], Libre/Openoffice saves files to a format that closely representates the ODF format which is a superior open source fully documentated format [which Microsoft resists to support correctly].
https://forum.openoffice.org/en/foru...hp?f=7&t=65383

If you save in Microsoft word format, you only lose special formatting which doc does not support (similiar to if you used docx).

You can make Libreoffice save files by default as Microsoft Office supported files by changing as follows:

Open Libreoffice, go to the menu 'Tools', click on the option 'Options', then in the following window, navigate to 'Load/Save' and click on 'General'.
Set in 'DocumentType' and 'Always save as' the options as below:
  • 'Text Document' > 'Microsoft Word 97/2000/XP/2003'
  • 'Spreadsheet' > 'Microsoft Excel 97/2000/XP/2003'
  • 'Presentation' > 'Microsoft Powerpoint 97/2000/XP/2003'

If you wish, you can use the free 'Word/Powerpoint/Excel Viewer' to see how they could look like:
Word Viewer
Excel Viewer
Powerpoint Viewer

How in the world can this thread be considered "[SOLVED]" when the problem was never actually fixed?????????? Telling someone with a problem to use a different program is not a "solution"!
