Downloaded and installed the standard PortableApps Suite (and -- to ALL you developers: THANK YOU!) on a freshly formatted (therefore, blank) SanDisk Cruzer.
Anyway, got a bunch of error messages upon installation about the install app not being able to create certain output files.
Safely removed the USB key and reinserted it. Besides the OpenOffice apps, all the other once seem to be working okay.
When trying to access any of the OpenOffice apps, I get the message saying: "The program cannot be started. The service manager is not available. Start setup application to repair the installation from CD, or the folder containing the installation packages.
Any advice would be tremendously appreciated -- thank you.
