i have hp hdx 16 with Windows 7 64bit. i tried to install openoffice portable in the "Program file" folder but while it was installing it gave me the following message "error open file for writing", i also got the same message with notepad ++ portable. what is the problem. i was able to install openoffice 3.1 the non-portable version. could you please provide assistance thanks
Do not install portable apps to your Program Files. That's for local, normal apps only. Portable apps store their data within their directory which Windows 7 does not like and will cause error messages.
You should install all your portable apps you want to install to your local hard drive to C:\PortableApps
Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!
