Don't know if anyone can help me. I have just started on Libre as I am not
too happy about the development status of OOO. The company that I work for
has a lot of old Staroffice 5.2 documents as that was the main office suite
that has been used since I started here. I am always up for development,
testing and going forward and after a while, we have "sort of" booted
Staroffice and are running mainly Openoffice. I am starting to test
Libreoffice now and as with OOO3.3, Libre3.4 does not open these old
Staroffice files. I do not want to stay stuck with an older office suite
than needed, but I will have to be able to periodically (sometimes on a
daily basis) access the Staroffice files.
As I said, "sort of" booted Staroffice. Some of our clients and reps have
opted to stay with Staroffice files (SDC, SDW, etc.) and one of our servers
generate Staroffice type reports. With both of these instances, I can not
intervene and change the Office suites.
Must I degrade back to an earlier OOO or is there another solution?
No, you don't.
Just do a repair-install (I assume, that you're on Windows) and
instead of doing the "typical" installation choose the "user defined"
or "custom" installation.
On one of the following screens, where you can choose what to
install, mark "install support for obsolete file formats", which will
install among other things the import filters for the old StarOffice
I trust, this helps.
