Comment 3 Drew Jensen 2018-07-20 23:20:25 UTC
Checked this with the 6.2Alpha build made on 07-20 and most of the odb files I opened ran the migration assistant.

However there this particular one

still will not. I can open it in 6.1 RC today and it will execute the migration assistant, but in 6.2 it still shows the message box and when you answer yes it does nothing.
Comment 4 Drew Jensen 2018-07-20 23:45:37 UTC
One more (last example)

again this file will execute the migration assistant under 6.1 RC (has an error but moved enough to test the issue with FB btw) but under 6.2 today after answering yes to the prompt it fails to execute.

Comment 6 Xisco Faulí 2018-08-29 09:21:30 UTC
Also reproduced with https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/attachment.cgi?id=144513.

This is a blocker to enable the migration in 6.2 by default...
Comment 7 Julien Nabet 2018-09-02 08:07:16 UTC
I gave it a try with https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/#/c/59900/

I think regression is rather due to 9ceeb4619ba762c47589023d99c43c774caab441

@Julien Nabet, Thanks for fixing this!!

OTOH, I found a bug that might be related, but I'll report it in a different issue...

I found bug 117352, which is older than this one, so no related...
