Using OpenOfficePortable on terminal server - problem with SettingsDirectory in OpenOfficePortable.ini

When i tried to run OpenOfficePortable3.1 on Windows2003stdR2 with terminal server, the first user can do everything he need - open documents, edit, save and close them. When second user trying to start OpenOfficePortable (first user is still opened OO) - he receiving error message (OO cannot find settings or OO recommend to recover file, which is opened by first user). I tried to edit parameter SettingsDirectory in OpenOfficePortable.ini, but it didn't help me: I tried to replace "Data\settings" to "%userprofile%\Data\settings" or "d:\soft\oo\%username%\Data\settings" (all needed folder was created). Please tell me - how to avoid this problem (installing full OO is not a good idea)?

Hi ildary. Unfortunately, portable apps do not support what you are trying to do. Only one user may use an app at a time. There is no workaround. You should use the local version of apps like OpenOffice.org, Firefox, Thunderbird, Sunbird, etc to accomplish what you want because the portable versions will not work.

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