LibreOffice Portable

Problem with installation

Submitted by rali on February 22, 2011 - 11:15am


I tried to install LibreOffice Portable after I have downloaded it to C. I tried to install it on my USB but strange I had more than 1.5 GB free on C and during the install I get the error that I`m running ot of space on C. So I had to stop the installation. After I have done that I now have only 500 MB free on C even when I have deleted the LibreOffice Portable.exe file?

Can somebody help me to free C because I think that LibreOffice Portable has created some files somewhere on it but I dont know where or how to find them?

Thanks in advance


Broken LibreOffice PAF.exe

Greetings everyone

Just to let you know, the current downloaded LibreOffice PAF exe (v3.3.0) is broken!

File size 278kb, and starting the installer gives you this:

NSIS Error
Installer integrity check has failed. Common causes include
incomplete download and damaged media. Contact the
installer's author to obtain a new copy.

reveal codes ?

I have read in several places that LO has implemented a reveal codes feature, similarly to 'WordPerfect' - but also that nobody can seem to find it.

Can anyone here definitely verify the presence or absence of this well-loved feature ?
(I suspect that it is the one feature which may garner more new users in a single lump than any other one...)

Thank you !


Spaces in launch path

Submitted by Grano on February 15, 2011 - 12:34pm

I used to launch OpenOffice Portable from my Win XP desktop. This does now work with LibreOffice Portable any more: an error message complaining on spaces in launch path is displayed (C:\Documents and Settings\username\Desktop\...)

Does anybody happen to know what might be the reason of such a change in behaviour? Is it a PortableApps or a LibreOffice issue?

LibreOffice Portable Edition Will Not Install

Submitted by hwfa on February 11, 2011 - 9:56am

Win XP Pro SP3

I downloaded LibreOffice Portable v 3.3 and tried to install it on my USB drive along with several other Portable Apps. I got "Please close all instances of Libre OpenOffice PE and then click OK. The portable app can not be updated while it is running". But it is *not* running. It isn't even installed; this is the first time I've downloaded it.

Thanks, you are providing many good features, either in the form of EXTENSIONS.

Please provide OCR(optical-character-recognition) feature, which can recognize COLUMNS, paragraphs, etc.from the scanned images/docs.
