LibreOffice Portable

File Association, LibreOffice, Windows 7

Is it OK now to associate Libre Office files (.odt) with the Libre Office portable app?

I know it was shunned earlier, because by doing that, your associating the file with the the app and not the launcher, but I read in the forums that there were plans to integrate file associations with portable apps. I wasn't sure what the status of that was.

how-to enable offline help

Submitted by kensai on March 24, 2012 - 8:25am

for all peers, here is a quick how-to on how to use the offline version of help, in those cases when online access is not possible or severely limited.

1) download the corresponding help file from the LO-website, the version has to match your installed language and version number.
2) install the files locally
3) copy the local files (typically something like c:\Programs\LibreOffice\*) to ..\LibreOfficePortable\App\libreoffice\Basis\* and overwrite the target files. At the time of this writing, the folders are:
"help" "presets" "program" and "share".
4) uninstall the local help pack

LibreOffice worked great until today, I update Java-portable and Libreoffice both. Java works fine (I try it with Jdownloader). But Libreoffice could not start. It show the splash screen but after seconds Windows 7 gives me a warning and writes that the LibreOffice should close.

LibreOffice 3.5.0 crashes with too many/too large files opened

Submitted by dscullin on March 8, 2012 - 5:47pm

LibreOffice 3.5.0 crashes when too many/too large files opened in Writer - doesn't give out-of-memory warning? Running directly from USB drive, trying to open 30 or 40 .docs. Several GB of disk space on both USB and hard drive available.
Can someone write an error handler for it? Maybe just stop opening files and display the ones already opened?

How to Uninstall?

Submitted by gggirlgeek on March 4, 2012 - 4:16pm

I have the latest version (3.5 portable) and I need to uninstall. But there is no uninstall link in Programs and Features (Win7) -- (Installed without the Portableapp app manager.)

I realize I can simply delete the folder, however, there are a million entries in my registry which need to be cleaned. Why would there be an installer for an application that doesn't create an uninstall routine????

libre office 3.5

Submitted by jcruzate on February 25, 2012 - 8:11am

I have the same problem in my PC using Mc Afee, and LO 3.5 crashes. AVG don´t detects any virus but the LO 3.5 crashes too.
I resolve the problem using the program directly from flash USB (not from the PC).
When using USB LO 3.5 works fine in both cases.
Hope this help until the false positive for filterconfiglo.dll be removed
