I have installed OOo2 (1.9.104) on a Windows XP machine (sp2). I open it an it comes up with the license agreement which is fine. I continue through and accept. I can then use OOo and start it as many times as I wish in that current session. However if I log off or restart the machine and then open OOo, it will come up with the license agreement again. Does anyone know how I can trouble shoot this?

It sounds like, for some reason, OOo might be failing to create its local "user" data in your Application Data folder.

After you run OOo and quit out of it, there should be a folder like this....

C:\Documents and Settings\dbrewer\Application Data\OpenOffice.org1.9.104

Does that folder exist? If so, what is inside of it?

When you log out and then later log back in, does this folder still exist?

First, hello from nearby Lawrence KS.

I do not understand your questions. I'll try to guess. You could take a working, but fresh, OpenOffice.org folder from the Application Data folder, and then replicate it to multiple user accounts. I see no reason why that shouldn't work -- in principal. In OOo 2, things should be independant of pathname. In OOo 1.x it will probably be necessary to search all files for a pathname like...

C:\Documents and Settings\joe\Application Data\OpenOffice.org1.9.104....

and edit to a different pathname such as...

C:\Documents and Settings\jane\Application Data\OpenOffice.org1.9.104....

It might even be necessary to do this in OOo 2.

Worse, these pathnames might actually be represented in the form of URL's like...

file:///C:/Documents%20and%20Settings/joe/Application%20Data/OpenOffice.org1.9.104...

Wow, this is cool, the whole world and we are 20 minuts apart!

I am trying to setup OOo on a workstation so that anyone who logs on can use it without having to install it. I thought a nice touch to this might be to run a script to build the user's information file (name, address, etc.) using information from the domain (much the same way MS Office does, minus $400 per install Smile ). Any ideas? Thanks!!!

Unfortunantly, I am not a Windows guy and cannot be of much help.

It may be possible to do this. If you do it, please publish.

The configuration files for OOo (the stuff in the OpenOffice.org folder) is all XML.

I have some experience working with the Configuration manager data. Therefore, I can probably identify how to do this programmatically, if it is actually stored via. the Configuration manager.

I cannot help with how you might obtain the user's name, address, etc. from the windows domain.

See the following example.

I think it will answer a great many questions.
