[Closed] German dictionary lost when upgrading LibreOffice

Submitted by zappix on June 5, 2012 - 9:28am

After the last upgrades of LibreOfficePortable the german dictionary (default, also system and installation language) doesn't work any more: no correction, no hyphenation.

Funny is, the dictionary still exists, is registered as an extension, so everthing seems okay, but it isn't shown among the languages in the linguistic options.

I had to do a fresh install to get it working as expected.

This happened twice, for the last two upgrades, so it doesn't seem to be fixed or addressed as a bug...

LibreOffice Portable won't run from CD

Submitted by bl01 on May 30, 2012 - 11:58pm

I'm using LO and Win XP Home SP3.

I followed instructions on the support page to run LibreOffice Portable from a CD. I installed it on a hard drive, ran it a few times to generate default and custom settings, and then burned the whole directory structure to a CD.

When I try to start it from CD, the splash screen opens, and the progress bar advances until "Synchronizing repository for shared extensions" appears. Then it closes due to:
Fatal Error
The application cannot be started.

404 error from main D/L page

Submitted by sweetnuttin on May 29, 2012 - 9:11pm

Hi all,

I just have 3-4 quick questions if you please?

D/L'ing LO which goes okay!

But under the download link it has:
Bug Fix: Visual C runtime warning even once installed
which is link of: Bug Fix: Visual C runtime warning even once installed
But when clicking that link - it gives a Page Not Found (404 Error)!
Is this something to be concerned about??

is it me or rather my machine or is rather bug-ridden?
It crashes on pdf-export, crashes from time to time for no specific reason, sometimes won't open, sometimes tries to restore a file for no reason (no crash beforehand, will not happen if file is opened by OO).
I don't get it. I run OO port. (3.2) along with LO port, right now I'm using OO because of the bugs.
LO 3.4 (I think) ran without much incidents.
A clean install does not help, still the same glitches.

Questions about runtime

Submitted by Pokémaniac on May 24, 2012 - 8:11am

I've noticed that the new LibreOffice launcher offers to install the runtime when necessary, but I have a couple questions about how this works.
1.) Does this require admin rights? (I'm assuming yes, but I just want to make sure since I don't have a machine I can safely test this on.)
2.) If yes, are there any plans to implement this so that the runtime can be handled without needing admin rights?

[Fixed] LibreOffice Portable doesn't delete registry.dll upon exit

Submitted by Double Impact on May 23, 2012 - 9:23am

The new launcher unfortunately leaves folders ns*.tmp with registry.dll
when it completely closes.
This happens with the, which I've downloaded from
just today.
Hope this helps to find the source of the problem:
1) This behavior is also present in LibreOfficePortable.exe launcher fix 2
2) This doesn't exist in the patched LibreOfficePortable.exe launcher

LibreOfficePortable 3.5.3 Running very very slow.

Submitted by wolfburg on May 16, 2012 - 7:53pm

I updated LibreOffice to the latest version 3.5.3. Aside from the notice that MS Visual C++ 2008 runtime is not installed (when it actually is) LibreOffice runs unacceptably slow for some reason. It takes 10-12 seconds for the drop down menus to actually drop down. Load and start can take 2-3 minutes. Loading a document can take as long. No problem before 3.5.3. LibreOffice in this version is unusable. Discarded/uninstalled. Trying to decide how I can get back to previous version or maybe back to OpenOffice. My system is XP SP3, 1.6mhz clock speed, 2gig ram.
