Hello,

Probably not the best place to post this, but here goes. We are currently developing a plugin for a CAD package that would require a spreadsheet to organize info...also would need to be able to read existing spreadsheets. I want to know what happens if a user DOES NOT have OpenOffice istalled? Can we distribute the assemblies packaged with the OpenOffice SDK along with our plugin? We are not selling the plugin, nor are we modifying the code of the assemblies. What the plugin will do is first test to see if OpenOffice is Installed, if it is not installed, then our plugin would revert to the referenced SDK assemblies and leverage the functionality needed to read from a calc or xls file. Please let me know where I can read about the correct policies for distributing the SDK assemblies with our plugin.

Best,
Luis

The user MUST have OpenOffice installed on his machine and your running application will then use the CLI assemblies installed via the installation of the OpenOffice distribution.

You must not deliver the CLI assemblies with your application !

You have to check within your application if an installation is available on the user machine and if one installation is available enable your stuff - otherwise disable it.
