Running LOP on flash drive is too slow for use. Is anybody else seeing this? Is anybody able to run this on flash drive w/o lagging - Typing, toolbars, menu items all take up to about 5 sec to respond. I started mentioning this in this post in this node: https://portableapps.com/node/26448, but thought this may need it's own topic.

After installing LibreOfficePortable in the very same location, "C:\Program Files (x86)\Portables", where OOoP320 is still installed and running (so there is no "long paths" problem) together with many other portable applications, I found out it refused to start because of the spaces in the path.
I momentarily bypassed the obstacle buy moving the LOPortable folder in C:\, but this is not a place where I like to put applications.
LibreOffice is installed in a TrueCrypt container and I can not start any of the LibreOffice applications. Following error message occurs:
LibreOffice benötigt Windows oder neuer. Auf diesem PC läuft jedoch Windows ?, LibreOffice kann deshalb nicht ausgeführt werden.
In Portable LO Writer View Options, when I change the Horizontal & Vertical Ruler to be set in inches it stays set only until I close LO Writer then next time I open Writer the go back to char and line.
Launch1: Launching LibreOfficeWriterPortable.exe directly from within a Truecrypt container on a USB hard disk, not from portable apps platform.
Launch2: Launching LibreOfficeWriterPortable.exe directly from C: drive in C:\temp\LibreOfficePortable, not from portable apps platform.
OS: Windows 7
Tried installing it twice, and both times got the message: "Extract: error writing to the file th_en_US_v2.dat".
I remember a similar error occuring when I tried to install OO.o on my old Win98 machine, but this is a first on Windows XP.
Any ideas on what might be causing that?
I was delightet to see that - just as LibreOffice itself - LibreOffice Portable now comes as a multilingual install. Saves a lot of hassle diving for the right package.
Are there any plans to pack localized help packs in a portable installer as well?
So far I've helped myself by a) saving the original .xsl files in
into a zip archive then copying the contents of
[systemdrive]\Program Files\LibreOffice 3\Basis\help\
into that folder.
with the OO2 and OO3 I remember I read somewhere some advise to set it so that only one icon is displayed in the menu, not all the separate parts with each own icon.
Can this be done in LO too if yes hw?
Please close all instances of Libre OpenOffice PE and then click OK. The portable app can not be upgraded while is is running.
Its the first time i install Libre portable, upgraded?
After closing OOo portable installing is no problem.
OOo portble v3.2.0
Libre Office v3.3.0
Are more people having this "problem"?
Thank you very much !
Known issues state, "LibreOffice doesn't like running from overly long paths. So, while it will work directly from your desktop... if you have it within a subdirectoy on your desktop, it will probably fail claiming that some files are corrupted."
Mine doesn't run on the desktop or anywhere on my computer. I wanted to try out LibreOffice without installing it. I don't know if it is LibreOffice or the portable version, but after putting it onto my flashdrive and opening it up, it doesn't function.
