Subject Administrative installation on Windows 7
Date Thu, 09 Feb 2012 17:53:22 GMT
Hi all,

this is about bug

I try to get an administrative installation of a developer snapshot on 
my netbook having Windows 7 starter, for to test several versions parallel.

I unpack the binary and install it with "setup.exe -a". I get a folder 
with a 'program' subfolder. Therein is the file 'bootstap.ini' where I 
set UserInstallation=$ORIGIN/..

This way of proceeding works well on my PC with WinXP. But on my netbook 
the program terminates directly after starting of soffice.exe. It 
generates the folder 'user' and writes the file .lock, but then 
terminates with a Windows error message. When I copy the whole folder to 
my PC, it works without problems there.

The problem is only with an administrative installation, not with a 
regular installation.

Is anyone out there, who can test, whether it works for him, or can give 
me a tip, what might be wrong with my Windows 7?

Kind regards
