Hi,

I've found a problem with the installation of OpenOffice 1.1.2 under Windows (XP and 2000 - not tested with other versions).

Into the setup.inf and the setup.log, it is writed that the "App Paths" key for soffice.exe should be writed under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE hive. But, after installation, these keys are founded under HKEY_CURRENT_USERS hive.

I speak about the "App Paths" key because I need it (to start OpenOffice by batch command like "start soffice -writer") but it is the same thing for all other OpenOffice keys.

If I move this "App Paths" key manualy to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, the problem is solved.
As, it seem that it is a problem in the installation procedure.
I try to install as an administrator or as a user (with local administrator right). Same problem.

I have many PC to install and I would like to know if somebody know how to correct the installation procedure ?

Into the setup.inf, it use the "PREDEFINED_HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE" but I don't find any definition for this "PREDEFINED_HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE".

Thanks

Didier

setup [Options...]

-? / -h[elp] Shows this help page
-n[et] Starts the network installation
-repair Starts the installation program in the 'repair' mode
-reinstall Starts the installation program in the 'modify' mode
-deinstall Starts the installation program in the 'remove' mode
-r <path to response file> Installs OpenOffice.org via response file
-d <path to directory> Installs OpenOffice.org in the specified directory
-c[rc] Checks the CRC checksums of all files of the installation set
-v Enables verbose messages during the response file installation
-debug Allows you to debug a response file installation
-noexit Says not to abort the response file installation if an error occurs
-alluser Uses the registry key LOCAL_MACHINE instead of CURRENT_USER

I tried the install using the setup -alluser option, this did solve the problem
After the installation the start soffice -writer worked OK.
