Hi. I’m having a problem installing OpenOffice Writer for use on my old Windows 98SE computer at home. It works great on my office Windows XP machine. Specifically, the menu bar (“File, Edit, View,” etc.) does not appear at all on the Windows 98SE display. From what I’ve read I suspect that I haven’t handled Java correctly, and I don’t know how to do it. Java 1.5 is installed on the local machine. Using the Java Portablizer 1.1 I imported the Java files to the JavaPortablizer folder which was automatically created on the portable device. I then copied all of the files in the JavaPortablizer folder and pasted them into “...\OpenOfficePortable\App\Java”. I did not past them into “X:\PortableApps\CommonFiles\Java” as is recommended, because I don’t have a “CommonFiles” folders on the portable device. The JavaPortable.ini file reads as follows:
Vendor=Sun Microsystems Inc.
I don’t know how to configure Java for use with OpenOffice.org Portable, and I’d appreciate any advice whether or not Java is the problem. Thanks.
