I installed LibO portable v.3.4.1 multilanguage with all languages, set the UserInterface, LocalSettings, DefaultLanguage to german language (Tools> Options> LanguageSettings> Languages>) "changes take effekt after restart" after restart, language settings for DefaultLanguage and LocaleSettings were still set german, UserInterface language was changed back to english (USA).

so I copied my LibO v3.4.1 (nonportable)settings, which works fine with german userInterface language to my portable LibO installation.

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

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.

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."

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?
