Subject Re: Installing Apache OpenOffice over LibreOffice (was: Not happy with the Google results)
Date Sun, 13 May 2012 19:41:31 GMT
Hello Alex,

I am one or two steps ahead of you, but I don’t think I gave any details  
in my last message of what I did to install AOO this time around. So I  
will do so now.

This is for Windows 7 Home Premium SP 1 64 bit. I have hidden files and  
folders un-hidden.

I copied my installation of OpenOffice 3.3 from Program Files (x86) to a  
temporary folder I keep for just such an occasion.
I copied the OpenOffice.org folder that is in the C:/Users/<user  
profile>/AppData/Roaming/ to my temp folder.
I renamed the original folder in Roaming to "XOpenOffice.org".

I copied the LibreOffice folder that was in Program Files (x86) into the  
temp folder along with its counterpart in Roaming.
I then renamed the LibreOffice folder that was in Roaming to  
OpenOffice.org.

I installed Apache OpenOffice 3.4 taking the option to install into my  
LibreOffice folder.
Everything installed smoothly. The installation gutted the old OpenOffice  
folder when it installed over LibreOffice.

I started up AOO and it worked fine except for the arrow keys not working.  
I have a program that renames files and everything in the registry etc. So  
the folder named LibreOffice was changed to OpenOffice. Everything still  
works the same.

I deleted the XOpenOffice.org folder.

I re-installed LibreOffice 3.5 and copied my old LO folder from the temp  
folder over it.
I then replaced the copy of LibreOffice back into Roaming. This returned  
my old settings, templates, etc.

LibreOffice is working as it was and I have AOO installed with all of the  
same settings, templates, etc of my old installation of LO (with minor  
exceptions to the differences between the programs).
