Hi Tanstaafl

I followed your emails and this last one with your process.

I can offer my input as to Windows 7. I am using Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit, all up to date with jre-7u21, both 32bit and 64bit installed (this should not be an issue though as covered by many emails posts, LO is reducing it's need for Java support). I was testing LO 4.1 so I have LO stable installed alongside LO RC3, following the online guidelines on installing two LO versions without clashes.

I did each step posted below and created the .docx document. I was able to open it with no incident whatsoever, so it might either point to a XP / LO problem under 32bit, or something you have installed in XP causing the crash.

Hope this helps to iron out some of your issue.

I do not know the correlation of versions between LO and AOO, but today
I got the following two security reports from the AOO users forum:

Not sure if this was even remotely close to my reported problem.

1. Upgrade to 4.1 (Windows 32bit XP Pro sp3 fully up to date)

2. Open Writer, create a new text document with the word 'test' in the body.

3. Save as .odt file.

4. Open file (opens fine).

5. Save As > .docx file.

6. Attempt to open the file - encounter General I/O error.

Haven't tested on Windows 7 yet, but will in a bit...
