The OOo Installation Site has all the latest info, however the best reference right now is an old Sun PDF available there called StarOffice 5.2 - Installation with Response Files

I created a response file for what install options I wanted:

[Environment]
InstallationMode = INSTALL_NORMAL
InstallationType = STANDARD
DestinationPath = <firstfree>\openoffice
StartProcedure = MyStartProc
EndProcedure = MyEndProc

[Procedures]
Sub MyStartProc
ShowSetup
End Sub

Sub MyEndProc
HideSetup
DefuseRestart(True)
End Sub

[Java]
JavaSupport = preinstalled_or_none

And I run the actual setup like this:
%systemdrive%\install\OOo\setup.exe -r %systemdrive%\install\OOo\response.txt

Enjoy!

You'll have to modify the installation response file line:
DestinationPath = <firstfree>\openoffice

From the aforementioned docs
DestinationPath
Values
d:\office5x
<firstfree>\office5x
<home>\office5x
Default: <firstfree> + directory name of DefaultPath from the setup
script
You can enter the target path for an installation in absolute terms or relative to an
identifier which the Setup replaces. '<firstfree>' will be replaced by the first drive letter
found that has enough disk space to store the specified installation type (WIN/WNT).
'<home>'will be replaced with the home directory (UNIX).
You'd probably want something like ONE of these:

<firstfree>\Program Files\openoffice (best one if it'll accept the space, it should considering it's used on *nix)
<firstfree>\progra~1\openoffice (alternate to get around the space if needed)
c:\Program Files\openoffice (of course you can force a drive)
c:\progra~1\openoffice (either space or 8.3 way of course)

I made a multi-user install with all the OOo files on a networkshare.
However, while with this each new user will simply get all the user-specific files when he first starts the program, there will be no file-associations.
This also happens with a local multi-user install and is a well-known problem on the OOo forum.

To get around this one of the users there posted a reg-file with all the file-associations.

If I get around to it I will attach it here.
You will have to a 'replace string with...' to replace the path of the program with yours.
It's quite big really, about a 1000 registry entries...and I haven't tested it yet.
I also can't get the orginal link because there is no official OOo forum and I got from one of the unofficial fora, of which there are plenty. Stay Tuned.

To sum it up: OOo installer sucks... :)

To Crusty01 :=)

I agree on Your summing up. And I would like to add that the whole OO is really shakey - instable.

Sorry, but that´s the case.

Hi,

I'm installing OOorg v1.1.2 with this switch:
setup.exe -r:Full\Path\to\setup.txt -debug

[Environment]
InstallationMode=INSTALL_NORMAL
DestinationPath=D:\OpenOffice
EndProcedure=PostSetup

[Java]
JavaSupport=preinstalled_or_none

[Windows_Desktop_Integration]
Register4MSWord=False
Register4MSExcel=False
Register4MSPowerPoint=False
RegisterAsDefaultHTMLEditor=True

[Procedures]
Sub PostSetup
SetReboot( False )
End Sub


No the first time the program is run, I have a message box asking me:
Another instance of OO has access to your preferences or is blocking them.
A simulatnous access may create incoherence in your preferences. Before continuing, be sure that the user 'AUTORITE NT/SYSTEM' quits OO on <HostName>
Are you sure you want to continue?
(translation of the screenshot)

I'm installing OOorg @ t-12 (cmdlines.txt).

It ask me this only on the first user that runs OOorg (admin or not)
  • Why is it asking me this?
  • How to prevent this?
  • [CORRECTED See next post] It seems that the .sxw and others aren't registered with OOorg... Anyway to get this work? Crusty01, did you find your reg tweak for this?
Thank you

What would be the command to use to install openoffice 113 from the sfx file?
This would save a lot of space if first the installer gets copied to hd,then extracted to same directory and then used the response file to install

If you navigate to download.openoffice.org, you can download the latest beta (1.9.65), which rids the need of a response file. The install can be run from openoffice1965.msi, which can use the switches /qn and /qb for unattended installation.
