Sun ODF Plugin Installation Issue + Work Around
By user13342178 on Jul 17, 2007
We got the feedback that on some systems the converter doesn't start, and you get the following error message:
"Word cannot open the converter textconverter".
If you experience this problem, please copy the file "msvcr71.dll" from the Plugin directory into your windows system directory.
In a standard installation of the Plugin, you can find the dll in "C:\\Program Files\\Sun\\Sun ODF Plugin for Microsoft Office 1.0\\program". Your system directory is typically c:\\windows\\system32.
Alternatively you can enhance your PATH environment variable to include the Plugin program directory.
