LibreOffice 3.6.1 and App-V

Submitted by Sequencer on October 5, 2012 - 5:14am

Anyone able to virtualize LibreOffice 3.6.1?

I have tried to following:
Sequence in XP -> creating package works and prelaunch launch works ok, but when I stream the package to client the launch fails.
I get the following error on launch:
"LibreOffice 3.6 Fatal Error
Application launch doesn't work. An error occurred during file opening"

Sequence in Win7 -> Install goes ok, but when trying to open software the launch hangs and I get the following error on launch:
"LibreOffice 3.6 has stopped working"

Message in event log:
Log Name Application

I am working with
Windows 7 Home Premium (Build 7601) Service Pack I, 64-bit edition
LibreOfficePortable 3.4.5
OOO340m1 (Build:502)
no JAVA installed.
LibreOfficePortable 3.5.x and 3.6.1 could not be installed, because MS VC runtime was missing. NOw, I have tried the new version:
MS VC runtime is not still missing, but i could not launch LibreOffice. The first time it aborts with the message:
"Die Anwendung kann nicht gestartet werden - an error occurred during file opening"

Trojan from server Libreoffice?

Submitted by johan_b on September 22, 2012 - 7:10am

Today 22-09-2012 I updated my portable apps.
The update was stuck at the Libreoffice update.
a moment later my virusscanner (F-secure) reported a trojan in the file
It looked like it was received during the update.
Is it possible the files on the server are infected?

Libreoffice/Portableapps and Linux

Submitted by gebi on September 19, 2012 - 12:16pm

Hello all,

I had to install Libreoffice on an USB stick.

As I run Linux on my box this is a little adventure, cause the install package for libreoffice stickware is a windows executable.

My first approach was, to run an XP guest in Virtualbox (4.1.22), and to hand the USB stick over to the XP guest, so that XP could write directly onto the stick. As my Virtualbox is PUEL licensed from Oracle for personal use it was possible to also install the extension pack from Oracle, which provides USB 2.0 via an EHCI emulation. Okaaayy, sounds good.

High number of app files

Submitted by lcpetroski on September 19, 2012 - 10:46am

A recent install of LibreOfficePortable 3.6.1 has 17,937 files despite specifying the delete of unused languages. Something seems very wrong. Nearly 18,000 files required (many of them apparently help and text files in unwanted languages)on devices with a limited number of i-o cycles seems absurd. Are there really no other directories that can be eliminated from the install? Has this application really been pared of unneeded language files as specified during the install options?

[Closed] LibreOffice 3.6.x Crashes on startup.

Submitted by Raven2k360 on September 17, 2012 - 11:29am

Just noticed this morning (though haven't fired it up in about a week) that LibreOffice isn't working,it crashes during the splash screen at startup. There is no error window that pops up other than it stopped working and Windows Error reporting says it'll notify me of a fix (yeah, right!). I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling twice to no avail, deleting the entire folder, the 'user' folder it created on my flash drive, etc. I downloaded and installed the full version on this PC and it works like a champ, so not sure what's going on here.

Which download version contains option during installation to remove extra language files?

Submitted by dforion on September 13, 2012 - 9:27pm

I've read at :

An experimental option during installation allows you to remove extra language templates, dictionaries, etc. but may require launching LibreOffice twice on first run to complete the process.

Is this in the NORMAL download or the ALL (languages) Download. I only need US English language, no other languages.

Thank you!

LibreOffice Portable Version (Build ID: e29a214) Calc Cell Value Display issue

Submitted by Tiger-Heli on September 10, 2012 - 10:59am

Not sure what is going on, and I couldn't re-create it to take a screenshot, but ...

Essentially - I have a speadsheet with a numeric value in a cell. I change the value in the cell and hit Entry. The cell displays as blank, even though the updated value is shown on the address bar and used in subsequent cells.

I can click on other cells and the value is not displayed in the affected cell - however, I can save the worksheet and/or change the format of the cell to currency and back and then it does display.

The files are saved as .xls files, if that makes a difference.
