LibreOffice Portable

What is the correct process for upgrading to a new version?

Submitted by patris on July 13, 2011 - 7:11pm


I have installed and running ok, version: LibreOffice Portable 3.3.3
The application is installed on my computer at the following location:


.......LibreOfficePortable (v.3.3.3)

Now, I want to install the new version 3.4.1 Test. How should I do?

The data indicate that must be installed, for now, in a "separate directory"
The question is: separate from what?
1. within the existing directory: LibreOfficePortable (3.3.3)? (like child?)
2. outside, as the brother of the existing directory?
3. Other?...

[Fixed] LibreOffice insists another version is running

Running under Win7 32 bit.

I have been using LibreOffice previously. Have probably had Platform do an update since my last run. Anyhow, now any attempt to start LibreOffice gets a dialog box claiming another instance is already starting up and will not start. I've looked at running processes and find nothing related to Libre/Open/Star office. Even after a fresh reboot I get the same result.

I'm going to do a download and reinstall but am curious as to whether there is an answer.

Hi All,
I am new to the Forum, I am not a specialist user or programmer, I have only general knowledge about common and computing.

My platform is Windows Vista SP2 ( Spanish )

I recently installed version 3.3.2 of LibreOffice Portable, folder create it in the same directory downloads and it worked well, however I have the following questions and issues:
1. The Spanish language is installed that includes spelling correction, but does not include synonyms: How do I install this?

[Fixed] LibreOffice Portable can't open more than 2 documents being passed in

I have recently upgraded to LO 3.3.3 Portable. I am having a strange problem opening docs. I have .ods and .odt extensions pointing to the LibreOfficePortable launcher, so when I double-click on a spreadsheet or a database it opens it through the launcher.

OK, I can have several spreadsheets open at once no problem. If, however, I close one of the spreadsheets then try opening another one, it displays a message box:

"Another instance of Libreoffice Portable is starting. lease wait for it to start before launching again."

Problems with LibreOffice

I've installed LibreOffice Portable in Brazilian Portuguese. When I launch it from PortableApps Suite, the language change to Portugal Portuguese. This doesn't happen when I launch it directly from the folder: it appears correctly in Brazilian Portuguese. Can anybody tell me what's the problem?

Besides, my F-Secure AV detected Gen:Variant.Kazy.21485 virus in


Next version to be released?

Submitted by Jackz on June 13, 2011 - 9:27am

I was just curious as to what the next version of LibreOfficePortable will be. Can we expect a 3.4.x version next, or is the intention that the portable version will stick to the 3.3.x releases? Also (probably asking the impossible) can someone indicate more or less when we can expect the next portable version? Just a rough guess (accurate to within a month) would suffice.
