    DESPERATELY NEED HELP: OpenOffice App Is Running Very Strangely...


    Hi all,

    I just rebooted my Windows 10 Pro PC(fully updated) and I opened OpenOffice and it gave me an error saying "OpenOffice 4 Fatal Error" and now every word that I type in OpenOffice comes up as being misspelled even where are no spelling errors...

    I'm running OpenOffice version 4. I know it's old, but I've been using it so long because it always worked fine until today...

    I really hope someone can help me because OpenOffice is my main word processing app!

    Thank you.

    You might want to consider LibreOffice, it is actively developed.

    OpenOffice 4.1.9 was released on Feb 28, 2021 but updates for several years now appear to mainly bug fixes.

    When an app stops working, the first thing to do is to download the latest version. If that doesn't work, Uninstall the old version, restart your computer and reinstall the latest version.

    Do some basic maintenance tasks from the bottom upwards, there are detailed tutorials for these on here.

    1) HDD/SSD checks.
    2) SFC and DISM checks of your Windows install.
    3) Uninstall OpenOffice, and then re-install.

    I'm on OpenOffice 4.1.8, the auto-update module is never installed. It works fine, update will be done in due course but obviously there is no need for the latest version as such.
