OpenOfficeWriterPortable does not run along LibreOffice

Submitted by PpqJqG2pgNaM on November 4, 2021 - 10:26am

Hello, can following be solved?

I have 2 users logged in simultaneously on my PC - me and another user (with a different install location of PortableApps) - and I can not launch OpenOfficeWriterPortable.exe, while LibreOfficePortable.exe is running on another user. I can launch D:\Apps\PortableApps\OpenOfficePortable\App\openoffice\program\swriter.exe (or soffice.exe) without issues though - so it's only about the Portable.exe launcher. Do I need to un-lock is somewhere? Thanks.

Installed JRE,
went to set up the runtime environment path
selected Programs > Java > jre 1.8.0_301
Dialog box informs me: The folder you selected does not contain a Java runtime environment. Please select a different folder.

How to proceed?

Legal Advice from Professionals

Hi Sirs,

If anyone needs legal advice from one of you guys, can anyone help? I am really amazed and believe that open source is a much humane way of doing business but it seems that I am plagued by unknown people everytime I am trying to use Portableapps.

I am ready to let any of you to let in to all my private logs in all my devices and see if something illegal and against our legal right to do open source and promote the same. Maybe it's time that we can promote this right as a community?

Please advice..


OpenOffice config error on start after upgrade

Submitted by robw on July 5, 2019 - 7:44am


After upgrading my OpenOffice Suite on the server to the latest version of 01-07-2019, I'm getting the following error on run:
"A general a error occurred while accessing your central configuration".

I tried removing & reinstalling the Suite, but I'm still getting the same error. Installing it onto a different/local drive will get me a working Suite.

When is AOO 4.1.6 Going to be Packed by Portable Apps?

Submitted by Abraxian on June 22, 2019 - 1:06pm

I'm usually pretty patient and know how to just wait -- I do appreciate that packers are busy with other things and so on. But 4.1.6 was released by Apache in November 2018 and still no release from Portable Apps. Please can someone pack it and release it. I suppose I think that given that Apache don't do many new releases of OO then just a bit of effort now and that will be that for several months.
