No/ Maybe

There is no way to use file association with portable apps as portable apps need a launcher/wrapper to take care of all the portable bits.

Some people worked on this and the result is here:

It works for many people.

Another Attempt

PFA (PortableFileAssociator) works, but I prefer "eXpresso" (previously known as "CAFE Mod")
I'd recommend you try them both and choose which you prefer.

Hello,

Okay, I've noticed !

So that it's to use it on my Pc I will install the PC version instead of using portable app ! No matter.

It's just strange that it had worked with OoO portable and not with LibrO !

Thanks for help, and to excuse my poor english.

Friendly.

Let me help you out with this

Let me help you out with this.

Use writer to open the .reg then CTRL+H and find all:
D:\setups\
and
D:\\setups\\
and replace all D:\setups and D:\\setups respectively with your directory.

On my second drive D: i have a folder named setups where i keep all the software i might use in the future.
I used RegSeeker to export all registry entries with the name LibreOffice
Cheers!

Hi,

Hi,

I use Windows 7 Family Premium 64-bit
I have the same problem: windows does not want to associate .ods files (and others) with LibreOffice Portable.

The software "coffee" and "espresso" are obsolete. So I'm going to try Dreamtraveler's manipulation, but I'm a bit worried and do not know how to do it.

I changed "D:\setups\ by C:\PortableApps\" and "D:\\setups\\ by C:\\PortableApps\\"

Can you explain to me what I have to do next?
I guess I have to right click on the new file "LibreOffice.reg" and choose "merge".
Yes but to merge with what?

Indeed, before clicking, I want to be sure to have saved the registry file (s).
So, can you tell me what backups should be done before?

Thank you in advance. Smile

Steph

up!

Would someone have the skills to tell me which file (s) I have to save before the manipulation proposed by Dreamtraveler?
Thank you in advance Smile

Steph
