Description riccardo_macri 2009-06-14 07:51:52 UTC
Installing OOo has impact on some non OOo apps (eg: notepad) which use the standard file open dialog at the Desktop folder. - create TXT file eg: test.txt on desktop. Contents dont matter - double click to open with standard NOTEPAD.EXE - select File-Open in notepad, browse to desktop if not already there using "desktop" button - hover over "test.txt" until information tooltip appears - cancel (escape key or click cancel button) - again, select File-Open in notepad, browse to desktop again if not there - hover over test.txt => notepad closes with no message. This behaviour has been repeated by multiple individuals with OOo 3.01 and 3.1 on various XP 32 installs, including a fresh fully patched install of XPSP3 and OOo 3.01 or 3.1. Not reproduceable using OOo's apps, wordpad or paint but is repeatable in notepad and an app I develop. Only occurs for files on the desktop. My desktop path is c:\Documents And Settings\Rick\Desktop. Uninstalling OOo removes the crash (no reboot necessary).

The crash of notepad disappears if you deregister the shell extention: C> cd "\Program Files\OpenOffice.org 3\Basis\program\shlxthdl" C> regsvr32 -u shlxthdl.dll
