Windows XP Incompatibility Workaround
Running LibreOffice 3.5.2 may result in an error on some Windows XP machines. As a temporary workaround, install the current Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Runtime on the local machine to alleviate the issue. A permanent solution within the portable package itself is being worked on.
Error on download?

Guess it took me that long to snip it then copy it paste it upload it and post it.
Thank You for the great job
Extensions not saved
Recently I added an extension to the "calc" function of LibreOffice. When I updated to 3.5.2 the extension isn't there. Is this common for LO? Is there something I could do to prevent this?
Please post complete details in the LibreOffice Portable support forum including install path, operating system version, what extension you added, and what version you upgraded from (likely 3.5.0) so we can have a couple folks assist you.
Which is better?
This might sound stupid but which Office Suite is better OpenOffice Or LibreOffice but also considering that they are portable which one is most full featured and compatible?
Most of the OpenOffice.org developers left to do LibreOffice and Oracle stopped work on it. Apache has OO.o now but hasn't done a stable release, so LibreOffice has more features and functionality. And it is likely to stay that way since, due to licensing issues, LibreOffice can add any feature OO.o introduces but OO.o can't use anything LO introduces.
