Can't install the extension Lightproof

I have OpenOffice.org 3.0.1 Portable installed, and I'm trying to add the extension, Lightproof 1.0. Ooo keeps crashing when I do; there is not always an error message when it crashes.

At home with my regular installation of Ooo 3.0.1, Lightproof installs just fine.

Does anyone know how to fix this?

Worked for me

Just downloaded Lightproof v 1.0. Installed on my 301 portable OOo with no complaint.

Maybe download it again (it's small). Sometimes it was just a bad download.

Not sure how much "grammar" it will eventually flag, but nothing crashed when I spell checked, either.

But you could try this other one. It's been working for me (I don't use it much and certainly can recommand or compare them):

Or it might be your "profile" in your data directory has problems. That's a common source of various issues. I'd check the OOo forum site (not this portable one) regarding that.
