Description Rainer Bielefeld Retired 2011-09-13 01:54:56 UTC
"LibreOffice 3.4.3 RC2 - WIN7 Home Premium (64bit) German UI [OOO340m1 (Build:302)]" (and others) often produce completely "General Error" messages. Please compare with the message from OOo 1.1.4 when opening the same document. Libo Should provide similar useful info!

Please attach a document that actually shows the error so we can verify that it's on multiple machines. The pdf is helpful but a test case for us to verify would be more helpful. 

Marking as NEEDINFO, once you provide a document feel free to move to UNCONFIRMED and we'll take a look at it and move it to the appropriate category. Thanks for helping us make LO better for everyone
Comment 3 Rainer Bielefeld Retired 2012-06-15 23:01:28 UTC
Let's see this one as a task bug and create separate bugs for each problem
Comment 4 Rainer Bielefeld Retired 2012-06-16 01:29:09 UTC
Add "Bug 51145 - FILEOPEN invalid .rtf causes useless ERRORMESSAGE"
Comment 5 Robert Roth 2013-01-27 22:54:36 UTC

Comment 6 Rainer Bielefeld Retired 2013-01-28 06:41:10 UTC
This Task Bug can not be a DUP of a bug report concerning a particular problem.

But Bug 34695 blocks this one
Comment 7 Rainer Bielefeld Retired 2013-02-28 15:43:57 UTC
I add "Bug 61621 - Trying to edit an OLE object without required software causes useless ERRORMESSAGE"
Comment 8 Rainer Bielefeld Retired 2013-02-28 15:54:15 UTC
I add "Bug 57799 - Useful Error Message required if wrong password for ftp login has been used"
Comment 9 Thomas Lendo 2017-05-20 19:52:59 UTC
Make it a dupe of 34694 because there are so few bugs in both meta/task bugs.
