Portage OpenOffice.org in french working for me

hello
for my need i prefer your version to make OpenOffice portable 8-)

howto make it working in french for me ?

first download your file in en-us version
extract all files and directory like you asking to do for the install process

also download the french at OpenOffice.org

http://fr.openoffice.org/about-downloads.html#fr

best way is make a clean install first of OpenOffice on your pc

then in the directory of the portable version delete all files and directory inside "openoffice"

x:\portable_openoffice_2.0.2_en-us\PortableOpenOffice\openoffice

replace with the french version this should be in

x:\Program Files\OpenOffice.org 2.0

must also replace the directory "user" inside "settings"

x:\portable_openoffice_2.0.2_en-us\PortableOpenOffice\settings\user

so delete the user directory

and copy the one locate here

x:\Documents and Settings\-----------\Application Data\OpenOffice.org2\user

where "-----------" is your username

x:\portable_openoffice_2.0.2_en-us\PortableOpenOffice\settings\

then is done is working for me maybe it can work for other language

ps forgive me if i make some error in EN because normaly speak french

Sounds about right...

Except that POO.o is compressed to save space -- regular uncompressed takes up several more megabytes.

not all but few dll can't supported to do it

so with normal install (all included) have around 250 mb
the reduce size is around 160 mb or 153 mb without sound files
