"Error Saving Topic" after uploading .doc

How do I fix this issue (error output below)? I'm using the latest AbiWord (2.8) and foswiki 1.09.

AbiWord --to=html %ATTACHDIR|F% %SRC|F% %DEST|F% failed with exit code 1: at C:/Program Files/Foswiki/Foswiki/lib/Foswiki/Plugins/MsOfficeAttachmentsAsHTMLPlugin.pm line 56.

This seems to be a bug in MsOfficeAttachmentsAsHTMLPlugin (maybe because its not been tested on windows?) - I wonder if it can be recoded to use the StringifierContrib.

You can try to activate the trace to see which command is really executed and try to execute it from the shell ......

To see what is happening activate the trace in Sandbox:
  • edit /var/lib/foswiki/lib/Foswiki/Sandbox.pm and enable tracing
  • Reproduce the error (create in Sandbox a Topic which reproduces the error). Your apache log should now contain the command that it was trying to execute
  • switch tracing off again in Sandbox.pm
  • paste the abiword command line (from the apache error log) in the shell, and observe what happens (this assumes the plugin is calling abiword through that standard sandbox mechanisms)
