Description Vikram 2014-01-29 14:38:00 UTC
Hello All,

I am trying to convert 50 or more MS documents to PDF using Libre Office SDK. 
Application is calling the storeToURL every thime for conversion of MS Document to PDF, but during conversion of document around 36th, Libre Office hangs on API 'storeToURL'. 

Why is this so, do i need to call any API to release memory or something. Why is it hanging. Control does not come back to application.

please provide step by step description to replicate the bug.
if needed upload a zip with test case files.
Comment 2 Vikram 2014-02-01 09:58:22 UTC

Steps are::

1. Take large number of files.
2. Programatically run a loop to convert to PDF
3. Use Libre Office SDK APIs for conversion.

In 3 step during conversion to PDF, it get stuck on calling API "oadComponentFromURL" and control does not comes back to main application.

define what you mean large. as asked in Comment 1, the best solution would be for you to upload a zip with test case files, so we can exactly reproduce the same scenario.

> 3. Use Libre Office SDK APIs for conversion.

more detailed step-by-step instructions would be useful for those who are not familiar with that feature. try explaining it like you were talking to a 6-years old boy (i.e. click this, select that, etc. etc)
