Solved Documents Changed When Opened In Word Web App

December 12, 2013 at 16:28:30
Specs: Windows 8
It should be explained first of all that I use Apache Open Office; I bought the newest version of Microsoft Office last year, but when I got a new laptop I never went through the process (whatever that process may be) of transferring the license.
I keep all my documents in a folder on my computer which automatically syncs with my skydrive. Often while away from my computer I'll access my skydrive online, open documents using Word Web App, and edit them. Back on my own computer, I'm unable to open the documents in Open Office: I get a "general input/output error".
I assume Word Web App must be modifying the documents in some way (and as such there may be no way to remedy the situation) but they're still in .docx form, and that's the only thing I know to look for. Any ideas why I can't open documents in Open Office after editing them in Word Web App?

Just load Office on your new machine.
In the time it takes for you to research and hopefully find a work around you
you could have completed the license transfer.
Check the license, you may be able to use it on more than one machine.
My copy allowed for Three copies to be used.
