Hi Gabriel, 
  I have LibreOffice Calc opening and printing spreadsheets again a short time ago.  I 
might have had 2 or 3 problems causing this.  The last problem I solved this afternoon was PDFs did 
not print.  I found this out using the Gnumeric spreadsheet program which can open .ods files. 
Gnumeric uses PDFs as print previews and on my computer they open in Adobe Reader.  I found my 
printer no longer worked with Adobe Reader after the upgrade to Windows 8.1.  After removing the 
Samsung ML-2955ND printer and 4 or 5 tries installing to get the test page to print I was in 
business.  On a whim yesterday I removed the multiple versions of Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 & 2008 
Redistributable that had been installed by programs and only kept the most recent.  That allowed me 
this morning to open a spreadsheet a couple of times out of a few attempts without freezing though 
both tries to print froze Calc.  I also gave full security access yesterday to
 the 4 users (I only have 1 user/login) which might or might not have had anything to do with this.
Thanks for your help

After upgrading Windows 8 Pro 64-bit to Windows 8.1, Calc will open with a 
blank spreadsheet but will freeze (Not Responding) when doing a Load 
Document.  The spreadsheet grid turns into a gray pane, probably system 
theme. The Menu bar (File, Edit, etc.)  is at the top but unresponsive. 
Status bar at the bottom only shows Load Document.  Only the Minimize 
on the Title bar at the top works.  It has run at least 60 minutes in this 
state with the turning circle.  The only way to exit is click on the Close 
button and select Close the program (the other option to select is Wait for 
the program to respond) or go to the Task Manager to force close the 
program.  All my .ods spreadsheets normally open within 10 seconds.  A new 
file is left behind that ends in .ods# and when LibreOffice is opened it 
asks me if I want to recover files.  How do I get my computer to open Calc 
spreadsheets once again.  I am heavily dependent on printing out 
spreadsheets in my personal life and use them to store my personal data 
without using paper copies.  I can no longer lookup information I need. 
This happened while using version 4.1.2.  The same thing happens with 
versions 4.0.6, 4.1.1, and 4.1.3. 

If the issue appeared when upgrading to a new windows version, is reverting not an option? 

Also, maybe it's I/O related. Does this happen if you move a file elsewhere 
(other drive, USB thumbstick, network share...) and try to open it from 
there? Trying this might help finding the cause of the problem (or provide 
a temporary workaround)
