Error Message on trying to open Open Office

I have install on 256meg usb flash drive. It is the only app. Unzipped using both the built-in zip of windows xp and 7-zip. Still get the following error message when trying to open the main program or any of the individual apps.

"Only part of a ReadProcessMemory ot WriteProcessMemory request was completed".

Can you tell me what I have done wrong?

Thanks

corrupted DLL

that usually indicates a corrupted DLL. try downloading the 2.0.3 pre-release self extractor (in the beta forum) and installing it to your local hard drive and running it there. if it works, you have a good copy. copy it to your device. if it fails, something is up with your device. a reformat may fix it.

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

Still will not run! :-(

OK, I installed on local machine and it ran fine. It still will not run on a 512 usb 2.0 flash drive. Get the same error message. I did a reformat on the flash drive but the problem still exists. FWIW, 7-Zip, Abiword, Firefox, Clam, and Thunderbird run fine, as does Any Password. I am going to get a new 1 gig drive today and see if that corrects the problem. In the mean time, do you have any other ideas?

Install OOP locally

Try installing OpenOffice.org Portable locally to the root directory of your hard drive. Grab a base download of the EXE of the pre-release of 2.0.3 (since it's being released and replacing 2.0.2). Then try running it without modification. If it works. There's an issue with your drive. If it fails, something else is up. Post details about your operating system version, etc. Also, be sure to run a memory test on your computer to be sure you don't have a faulty chip.

It Work's.......

At least running from the root of the "C" Drive. I should be getting my new flash drive next week and will try again running from that. I will keep you posted on the results. thanks for all your help.

New Flash Drive

I installed it on a New 512meg drive and guess what, it WORKS! Thanks for all your help. You where correct, it must be a bad drive. I have trashed the old drive.
