Windows 10 version 1903

Sandy M
Good afternoon

I have Apache Open Office on my Windows 10 pc. I need to update to Windows 10 version 1903. I have you heard anything about the update wiping the open office out during the update?

Thank you

Sandy M.

Hi Sandy,

I have Windows 10 v 1903 with LibreOffice. Not the same as Open Office, I
know, but both come from the same code.

LibreOffice works fine on my pc and has been on it since it was Windows 7.
I has continued to function through all upgrades... Windows 7 --> Windows
10 (whatever the earliest release was) --> all the other Windows 10
upgrades through and including Windows 10 v 1903.

I've also done some searching to see if there are issues with Open Office
on Windows 1903. It seems some people are having issues with Open Office on
Windows 1903. Whether that happens to you will only be known if you try the
upgrade.

If you try the upgrade and have problems then there are two solutions I've
seen. Upgrade to the latest version of Open Office which people report
sometimes resolves the problem. The other option is install LibreOffice
which doesn't seem to be experiencing the problem and is reported to work
without issue.

I hope this information is helpful and is enough for you to decide what you
want to try next.

I encourage you to update Windows. It is the most widely used pc operating
system in the world and because of that the most widely attacked. Not
updating it leaves it vulnerable to attacks.

Hi,

I am not able to find any issues to 1903 related to OpenOffice.
Can you please link them in a new topic?
I would like to check if we need to fix something.

What I could find out 1903 is a functional update and not a security one.

However Sally will not have to fear much. Your files are independant  objects in your computer. They should not be affected. But to be on the save side do a copy of all important work.
I am not a windows user. I have Not an overview what you can do to prefent the loss of your work.

What works if you have an internet connection is to use Google drive or dropbox to store them at some service.

What works if you have a SD card drive in your laptop is to copy your work onto the SD card and Therefor secure it from the update.
There are also CD burners that can write to a CD.

If you provide more information what computer you use maybe I can provide more details.

There are also software products helping you in general to create safety copies of your files.
If OpenOffice makes trouble then report here. We will help you as much as we can.
