OOo Quickstarter

First, thank you for a wonderful site, and even better set of applications!

I'm having an issue with PortableOOo 2.0.1 on Windows XP. When I start up the program using the launcher, the OOo Quickstarter also launches. This would not be an issue, except that even after I close the Quickstarter, Windows won't let me un-mount my USB Drive. I get the error message "The device (Generic Volume) cannot be stopped right now. Try stopping the device again later."

I checked the Task Manager, and there didn't seem to be any unusual processes running. Any advice?

Quickstarter On?

Do you have the quickstarter turned on in the settings within Portable OpenOffice.org? Or, perhaps is OO.o installed locally and set with the QuickStarter on?

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

Thanks!

It was the settings issue, I think. I unchecked "Load quickstarter at startup" and re-booted. The problem hasn't recurred since. Thanks for the help!

I often have this

I often have this problem.
It is actually a known bug/ feature in OO itself. Have a look at the following for more info (raised in 2003!):
http://www.openoffice.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=21747

If you kill Quickstart and 'soffice.bin' in taskmanager, then this might work... otherwise reboot!

Cheers,
Andrew
