I've found a simply solution

I'm sorry for my bad english.....I'm italian

For me PortableAPPS are absolutely necessary...It's not possible to stay without them....stand alone programs free HD space and, most of all, prevent my registry from explosion.

My solution is easy:

1. Download langpack from http://mirror.switch.ch/ftp/mirror/OpenOffice/extended/2.3.0rc3/

2. unzip and install it into the

The installer recognize that folder as an authentic folder of OpenOffice.

The installation takes 40 MB in space.

There is only one trouble: the installation leaves some registry key.....If you try to reinstall the langpack it finds the previous installation and ask for reinstall or remove.

Someone knows how to prevent this problem?

Thanks for attention
