Extra Icon Sets

Working Closer With

This release marks another milestone as we work more closely with the team. We'll be sharing resources and using their QA process moving forward for releases as we become a more official part of the world. Installer / Format Portable is packaged in a Installer so it will automatically detect an existing installation when your drive is plugged in. It will automatically upgrade an existing Portable installation without affecting your settings. And it's in Format, so it automatically works with the Suite including the Menu and Backup Utility.

The link to download the version 3.1.1 - Portuguese (Brazil) is not correct. The current link corresponds to version 3.1.0 - Portuguese (Portugal), despite the name of the file indicate the version 3.1.1.

Have you tried this one (OOP 3.1.1) in Windows 7? I can't run it in Windows 7: " 3.1 has stopped working." Am I doing something wrong?

Two things to try:

  1. Make sure you're not installing it any deeper than X:\PortableApps\OpenOfficePortable - otherwise you run into problems with path length exceeding 256 characters which is breaking point. I believe that in earlier versions of Windows it will put up a specific (Windows-generated) message box, but it's quite feasible that in Windows 7 it would just crash outright.
  2. Make sure that (non-portable edition) works on Windows 7.
