Is there a way to directly launch swriter/scalc/simpress,etc through PortableOpenOffice.exe (ie command line)?

First of all thanks for your work... it's great to have all these great apps being self-contained on their folder, for portability and other reasons Wink

I wanted to ask if there is a way to directly launch swriter/scalc/simpress,etc through PortableOpenOffice.exe (ie using command line options)?

Thanks,
Mguel

Use the INI (the readme explains)...,
and, I believe, -calc starts the calc, -writer, etc. I was debating having a launcher for each OO.o function, but that seemed a bit like overkill.

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

Done and done...

This will probably be handy for a few folks, so it's now up for everyone to use:

I'll see if there's interest for individual launchers...

Don't need a separate launcher... use shortcuts

A separate exe launcher for each would be overkill. But a separate shortcut file for each pointing to PortableOpenOffice.exe would be great. Sure they would be broken, but windows can autofix that the first time they are clicked. At only 2.31kb uncompressed for a set of 6 shortcuts, I hope you include them in your next release.
