Ooo to LibreOffice

chrizio - February 1, 2011 - 4:09pm

OOo Portable installed on pen drive.
With introduction of LibreOffice the PortableApps.com
doesn't seem to maintain OOo.
I have an impression, if I want to have the newest version,
here is 3.3.0, I need to switch from OOo to Libre.

How is the best procedure for changing my OOo Portable 3.2.0
to Libre 3.3.0?

No OO.o Portable At The Moment

There is no portable version of OpenOffice.org portable past 3.2.0 due to trademark licensing issues. Any portable packages of OpenOffice.org 3.2.1 or 3.3 you find out on the web are being doing illegally.

LibreOffice is a fork of OpenOffice.org so you'll find version 3.3 of LO very similar to OpenOffice.org 3.3

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

How does the proper procedure

How does the proper procedure of jumping from OOo 3.2.0 to
LO 3.3.0 look?
Just as in the past, download new Version, install it
on your pen drive over the present one?

Uninstall

LO isn't a straight upgrade from OOo. So you can uninstall OOo and install LO. You can run them side by side to ensure LO will work for you first. Your settings in OOo are not transferable to LO.
