Multiple MSVCRT?

I know in the old release you had more than one copy of the VCRT runtimes. Did you do this again? Or did you try setting the path to add it? (I was going to suggest this before, but I think I forgot to mention this to you)

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

Yes ... multiple again.

I believe path will not work with manifest ...
...cause Windows will use than the local installed (perhaps older) mvsrt.

But I'll create a modified Launcher for testing it.

path

I think I do it in GIMP and it works. Dunno if manifest short circuits it though. Try setting PATH to "$PORTABLEMSCVRTLOCATION;%PATH%" in code.

Sure

It's not quite right. You need to get the path env var first and then alter and set it, but I think GIMP and/or Pidgin have code for it.

Doesn't work

I did a clean install and it will not start. I don't even see the splash.

Edit: I tried it again at home and on my home PC it started and ran fine. I don't know why it didn't want to open at work.

Verified :-(

... its caused by missing MSVSRT files in App\openoffice\program.
Copy Microsoft.VC90.CRT.manifest aand the three msvc*90.dll from App\openoffice\Basis\program.

@John:Setting of the path variable dont work Sad

I'll search for a better solution than 3 times MSVSRT files.

Pre-Release 2 with all packages will come on Monday ans with a solution for this problem. In Pre-Release1 there are double launcher files in the App directory, will be fixed in Pre-Release 2 too.

At the moment no better solution for MSVSCRT ...

... it has to be installad in all main bin folders to work.
If someone will find another working solution I'll be happy...

All packages are built on the base of official OpenOffice.org builts (vanilla) with the same core for all packages plus the language specific files.

Imagepack and Languagepacks will be available with the final packages.

Sorry for delay, but 10 packages (for the first time) take longer than expected Wink

1.4 mb each ...

... 4.14mb for all.

It is not so much but it is ugly to have redundant files on a package.

In OP

In your original post you haven't edited to include release notes for pre-release 2 stating the bit about those redundant files and any other changes from pre-release 1. Also you still have talk along the lines of "Stay tuned for Pre-Release 2".

I was just saying you might want to update that so people who don't read the full thread know the changes in Pre-Release 2.

Suggestion

Was just looking at the OP and had an idea for what I think would a better layout. This would only apply to pages that have a number of possible installers based on language/content, eg. OO with the different languages, and packs, Gimp with the plugins, Firefox again with the plugins. So pretty much with the same info as contained in your OP just layed-out into a table that seperated the data to make it easier to extract a specific info type. Also if you could include a description column that briefly specified - French language version or Image pack containing alternate icons sets etc.

Just a quick thought.

Marko! Many thanks...

Marko! Many thanks for the russian version of this pre-release!

There is one bug with the coding in an installer. This bug finds out in the first window, in the last window and the alert window. The office package was installed without problems. Runs well (under vista-sp1).

I think that would be because NSIS (the language the installers are written in) currently doesn't support unicode so can't display all the correct Russian symbols

My fault ...

... wrong conversion of the language file. (Second windows has a standard NSIS text). I have to take some lessons by John for this Wink

Could You please check and complete the files PortableApps.comLauncherLANG_RUSSIAN and PortableApps.comInstallerLANG_RUSSIAN in the folder Other and send it to markomlm[at]openoffice.org?
I'll forward it to John in order to get better files for the final.

You'd saved it as UTF which won't work. It needs to be ASCII with Cyrillic encoding. Use this:

Vim/gVim

If you know the codepage identifier or can find it on Google (e.g. by searching for "cyrillic codepage" or "russian codepage"), you can use Vim - e.g. :set encoding=cp1251. It doesn't automatically switch it, though. I just used gVim to look at the file myself, as of course Firefox didn't display it properly.

However, sometimes you get trouble with it on complex languages as it requires a monospace font - e.g. Hindi becomes just blocks everywhere, unless you happen to have invented a monospace Hindi Unicode font (impossible because of the vowel points etc. stuff).

So, you can use gVim Portable for this Wink

I've used it for the imagpack language files and it seams to work. I've tested it with russian vista and all dialogs are in kyrillic.

Marko, many thanks! Both

Marko, many thanks! Both files run very well.

I have installed OOO_PR2_en. Then I have installed lanpack_ru. No problems. But to change language (from English to Russian), it is necessary to go too long path (Tools>Options>Language Settings>Languages>User Interface>Russian). And at first it is necessary to go long path of a registration in a window "Welcome to OpenOffice" (in English too). Smile

PR2a_imagepack is istalled without problems. The Russian text in windows of both installers is displayed correctly.

English seems Ok inc. grammar chk IF it is added manually

* spellcheck and grammar if available. --- I use the English version. Spelling worked. Grammar did too, after I installed a grammar extension (it worked perfect mechanically, that is. After the spelling was corrected it found a few gram errors but still let me sound quite drunk and/or illiterate.

* remove of unwanted extensions --- I was able to remove the Spanish dictionary that was pre-insatalled; it removed the associated menu items, too. I have no idea where those dictionary files are kept, though, nor if any or all were cleaned up. (I can only locate my user-created dictionaries.)

Also, some "extensions" seem to just install content and don't seem to uninstall it when the extension is removed. For example,

http://extensions.services.openoffice.org/project/oxygenoffice-english-t...

I installed it (for me only). I uninstalled it, and it did remove the reference from the Extension Manager. But the 30 Meg or so of templates and whatever stays available in OOo and of course stays on the drive. To me that seems fine but perhaps that is the "complaint" about some extension removals?

thx for the intensive test ...

... the dictionary files of the pre-installed dictionaries will be deleted if You'll remove it. There are problems with some extensions, but these problems are related to the extensions not to OpenOffice.org (Portable).

"directorios" instead of "directrios" (misspeling)
