openoffice.org? v 1.10
Posted 12 December 2003 - 08:33 AM
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

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)

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...

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

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
