Good evening
I am struggling to make a certain CAT tool (memoQ) work with very
complex (crazy) Word files.
Since that did not work, I tried to save a file as ODF file and use that.
Apart from the trouble I have otherwise ...

When I click in Internet Explorer on that particular file to copy / move
/ delete etc. it ...
Explorer hangs (crashes) and tells me, it is not responding.
This happens even if I restart the computer and NO OTHER software except
IE is running.
And this happens ONLY with this particular LO file.
It is not a "read only" file.
LO officed files stored in their specific folder do not cause problems.

The above file ... when I want to delete it, the only way to accomplish
that is to open LO Writer,
click file open -> select that file and then hit "Del".
File location (desktop, any drive, any folder) has no influence on this

Has anybody any idea what this strange behavior may be due to?
Can possibly offer a solution?

Thank you.


I think you mean Windows Explorer, the MS file manager. Are getting any
specific error message? When you open the file with LO can you save it
to another location?

I am not sure what is causing the problem. Hopefully someone more
knowledgeable about Windows quirks can advise.

If as Jay suggests you mean Windows Explorer, not Internet Explorer and
you have version 3.6.1 installed, you are encountering a known bug in
LO's Windows shell extension shlxthdl.dll or shlxthdl_x64.dll. The issue
has been resolved in version 3.6.2.x

Some possible options are:
o Run the installer in repair mode and untick/uncheck the shell
extension option.
o Revert to the 3.5.x series.
o Install 3.6.2 RC2 (Not recommended for production use, but I have been
hammering fairly hard and not discovered any show stoppers. Yet!)
