Anything else on your pc?

Anything else you can think of that may be conflicting with it? This is the first reported issue on WinXP. 2.0 starts more slowly than 1.1.5. Does the splash screen come up? Did you change anything from a default unzip? Try it locally?

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

Try soffice.exe directly?

Did you try running soffice.exe directory? It's in PortableOpenOffice\openoffice\bin

I meant program

I meant program. But if soffice.exe doesn't work, then OO.o itself won't work on that computer. And there's nothing Portable OO.o can do about that.

I got simliar problem as well. Download the whole suite in winxp sp2, unzip with winrar 3.5, all the others are ok but nothing happened after double clicking PortableOpenOffice.exe. But I am lucky that soffice.exe works.
