Subject Re: Apache OpenOffice 3.4
Date Sun, 05 Aug 2012 17:31:05 GMT
This is to follow Oliver's suggestion to mail this reply to 
_ooo-dev@incubator.apache.org_ ( , and  
to reply to his email... 
The autostarting of a "deactivated" Apache OO v3.4 problem 
is probably unrelated to the v3.4.1 upgrade.  
My program starts no matter what I try.  It has never been 
activated either from the tray icon or the usual Tools/Options 
menu.  I have gone into msconfig and can find nothing there 
that would indicate a programmed startup.  I've even used the 
AOL Computer Checkup function, with which I can supposedly 
keep any program from starting, but that doesn't keep the v3.4 
Apache upgrade from autostarting. 
The source from which I installed the v3.4 was I would think the 
usual source.  From the old OO, I was informed there was an 
upgrade available and clicked on that.  IIRC, I was sent to an 
Apache OO web page where I downloaded and installed the 
new v3.4.  I have had this autostart problem ever since. 
I was on vacation for a week, which is why this late reply.  I still 
need a fix for this.  It's tedious to have to close Apache Open 
Office each and every time I login, whether or not I restart the 
computer.  Please help! 
Yours truly,

Thanks for the  information and sorry for the late reply.

The problem which will be fixed in AOO 3.4.1 does not look  like the one 
you are describing. What we are fixing in AOO 3.4.1 is  that an active 
quickstarter does not open a window on every login.
What  you are describing seems to be something like that even with an 
quickstarter AOO 3.4 is starting on every login.
As I am not an expert  in this area I am asking you to come back to our 
mailing list Thus, other community members 
pick up  the problem.

By the way, you are suspecting that your AOO 3.4 is  piggybacking on a 
program. Do you remember from which source you  get your AOO 3.4 

Best regards,  Oliver.
