LibreOffice Portable

[not solved] - libreoffice or jportable fault - unsure which

Submitted by dunedin-hughie on May 12, 2012 - 3:58am

I originally posted this at the following link.

After some experimentation moving previous installs in and out of the portable apps folder of both LibreOffice and jportable I am unable to find a solution.

I didn't know how to move the original post so I have linked to it within the body of this post,



[Fixed] LibreOffice Portable 3.5.3 mistakenly offers to install VC runtime when already installed (patch included)

On some computers, LibreOffice Portable 3.5.3 will mistakenly detect that the MS Visual C++ 2008 runtime is not installed when it actually is. We're looking into the exact cause at the moment. If you are affected, you can help us by providing us information on what operating system it's running on and searching your C: drive for the file msvcr90.dll and letting us know where it is installed. We already have a partial fix working, but this could help provide us with a complete one encompassing any edge cases.

Fix 2: Better detection

LibreOffice 3.5.2 download fails

Submitted by RienTimmer on April 23, 2012 - 5:24pm

When I start the platform it checks for updates and finds LibreOffice 3.5.2.
It starts downloading but fails to complete, 8 or 16 bytes short of the indicated size. The download starts again and fails again. Then the platform gives up with the following error message:

Download Error: Reget Error on file
Outdated download link removed

Am I the only one getting this error?


Background Process

I'm using the normal LibreOffice installment (background) as a document converter and "print spooler" using -headles -p -pt and so on.

It is called from "my application", which uses a document queue. The normal executable can be run as blocking or non-blocking in the background. For my use it needs to be blocking, each document in the queue is to be handled fifo. This is required for my application.
The drawback is that i also use LibreOffice for my day to day business.

So i installed LibreOfficePortable for this task. But:

[Fixed] Extensions not saved during update

Submitted by Bindlestiff on April 16, 2012 - 5:09pm

I had been using LO 3.5.0 and had installed the extension "fixed values for calc". When I upgraded to 3.5.2 the extension was no longer there and I needed to reinstall it. I have updated USB flash drives on both an XP machine and a Win 7, 64 machine with the same results. Is this to be expected? Can I prevent it?

I tried searching but didn't see anything relevant to this.
