First of all, sorry for my english, but I'm french and my scolarity is far away !!!

Weell, here is myproblem, i use LibreOffice portable, to replace OoO Portable.
It works fine, but I can Associate the file with the app !
Exemple : windows XP pro does'nt want to associate .ods with Libreoffice !
So tha t when I click on a LibreOffice document it is open with microsoft office GRRRRRR !
I can't associate with LibreOffice, by the windows menu : Tools/files options/Files type :.ods It's exactly the same if I go by right click/open with....

Do you have a solution for me ?

No/ Maybe

There is no way to use file association with portable apps as portable apps need a launcher/wrapper to take care of all the portable bits.

Some people worked on this and the result is here:

It works for many people.

Another Attempt

PFA (PortableFileAssociator) works, but I prefer "eXpresso" (previously known as "CAFE Mod")
I'd recommend you try them both and choose which you prefer.

I've been busy IRL for the past month or two, but I'm back.

Hello, Okay, I've noticed


Okay, I've noticed !

So that it's to use it on my Pc I will install the PC version instead of using portable app ! No matter.

It's just strange that it had worked with OoO portable and not with LibrO !

Thanks for help, and to excuse my poor english.
