We have a web application with .NET framework 4.5.2 and c#. The operating system is Windows 8. It runs in IIS version 7.5. We are using Open office 2.1 for generating documents.

After generating  the document its getting converted to MS word of version MS Office 2003, 
For converting to word we have been used dotnet remoting service. But now we are converting from dotnet remoting service to WCF Service. Every thing works fine when we run in development environment. But when we deploy the same WCF service in IIS, it hangs at below line.

XComponentContext localContext = uno.util.Bootstrap.bootstrap();

Also it does not throw any exception – It just hangs. So I am not able to debug it any further.

Please help

This appears to be related to Issue 127037.

Please appreciate that 2.1 is many-years obsolete and the Apache OpenOffice project (which was founded after 3.3 became current) cannot provide any assistance for that product of Sun Microsystems.

However, this appears to be an issue related to IIS and how possible issues about threading and inter-process communication on the IIS server.  That is not something the project can help you with.

It may be that other users who perform similar use of OpenOffice libraries in a server operation might be able to assist you.  It might be easier to find them on an IIS Forum, or somewhere like Stack Overflow though.
