Bad allocation fatal error

Postby r l » Sun Jul 09, 2017 9:20 pm

Keep getting a Bad Allocation fatal error. Have quite a few sheets but not really doing anything complicated, just a few Sum calculations. Seems to happen intermittently after a few cut and pastes. (See attached)

Try the LibreOffice while the new version of the AOO will be published.

You can try it...

I never got such error message either AOO nor LO. The original poster not uploaded any sample file to reproduce the error...
I can not reproduce the error without a specific sample file.

Search the forums with bad allocation.
AOO 4.1.6, Windows 7 Home 64 bit

See the Writer Guide, the Writer FAQ, the Writer Tutorials and Writer for students.

Remember: Always save your Writer files as .odt files. - see here for the many reasons why.

Just realised I am using an out-of-date version thanks to the check for updates option being broken.

Installed 4.1.6, opened a .ods file, deleted a few sheets, then i think the auto-save kicked in and it sat there for a minute then bang

Can't find a solution. I reported this over 2 years ago and a bug report still says "Unconfirmed" https://bz.apache.org/ooo/show_bug.cgi?id=125006 so Im not holding my breath for a fix.

I am running 4.1.7 on Windows 10. I have uninstalled, ran updates, system diagnostics, reinstalled several times hoping that would stop the crashing of CAL. Please, please, please advise. I've read forums, tried other suggestions. I see that this error has been an issue for a long time, but the previous update of OpenOffice is when the problem started for me.

I appreciate any new tips.

Have you tried starting Windows in Safe Mode? Does OpenOffice Calc run OK when Windows is in Safe Mode?

Thank you. That's the one simple test I didn't think about. After reading about how people were saying things went hinky after a Win 10 update, I looked into how Windows stores pieces of what you're working on (allocates) that has nothing to do with the program save. As I explored my system, it looks like something that's definitely plausible, but I ran into a dead end with it. More accurately, I chickened out... killing my computer isn't my goal ;). I will try working Calc in Safe Mode the next time the issue comes up.
