Corrupted Data Message?

Had/have OpenOffice Portable 2.02 on a secondary/slave drive on my CPU; installed 2.03 but when I open it I get following error message:

Configuration data in E:/Documents & Settings/myname/PortableOpenOffice/OpenOfficePortable/App/openoffice/share/uno_packages/cache/registry/com.sun.star.comp.deployment.configuration.PackageRegistryBackend/registry/data/org/openoffice/Office/UI/StartModuleWindowState.xcu' is corrupted. Without this data some functions may not operate correctly. Do you want to continue startup of OpenOffice.org without the corrupted configuration data? Yes/No?

Regardless of whether I click Yes or No, the program starts and appears to be running but my question is what's wrong? I tried deleting 2.02 but that didn't help. Restored it and left it while reinstalling 2.03 but that didn't help. Any suggestions? E drive is my "old C" drive which I use as a slave/backup. Incidentally, 2.03 seems to work without this problem on an external hard drive.

Thanks in advance

Path Too Long

The reason for this is that your path is too long. OpenOffice.org has actually gotten a bit less forgiving about long paths. I think I may calculate out what the max is and add a check into the launcher in a future patch so people know what's going on. Extract it directoy to a drive root or a PortableApps subdirectoy off the root and it'll work fine from any drive.

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

SUCCESS!! New question

Guess what--you're right. Installed to shorter root:

E:\Documents & Settings\my name\OpenOfficePortable.

Now works like a champ. You're brillant!

NUSUB:

in Impress, want to insert an animated line on the Master so that each slide will show a line going across at the top. However, I can insert the line OK, but Custom animation doesn't seem to work for Master, only on an individual slide. Any suggestions??

Thanks again.

No idea there

I'm not as familiar with Impress. Since this is a standard OO question, check the OO documentation and, if needed, drop a note to the forums at ooforums.org.
