When I start OO on my MacBook Pro a box is shown that is called "Restore windows". It says that OO had to canceled when it tried to restore windows. I can choose between "Don´t restore windows" or "Restore windows". It doesn´t matter wich one I choose, it doesn´t diappear! I´ve tried to reinstall OO with no luck. And this box is "on top" all the time.

is there someone who can help me?

(If you have a problem reading my english it´s because i´m swedish)

This does not overwrite your "user" profile directory which could well be where your problem lies. See the link below for a HowTo.

Hi-

I have just read this post regarding the 'restore windows' notification (I am having this very issue)- but I did not find a solution. Can someone please explain how you found a solution for this?

JohnV- I created a new profile but still have this very same issue. The restore windows notification will not go away and none of my OO files will open.

Sahlis- can you please explain how you achieved your solution??

Thank you,

I too have had this issue and can't resolve.

Could you please explain what you did (exactly) to resolve this? I'm facing the same issue, and it is a complete mess to piece together what is on here.

Thanks,

David

I found that deleting/renaming the user profile did not help. However I was able to solve the problem by deleting the CrashReporter (inside Library/Application Support). It was unclear to me which crash report belonged to OO so I simply created a new folder called "CrashReporter". Then the problem went away.
