Using LO on WinXP

The very useful AutoCorrect function is something I would like to
have, but I don't want to have to manually insert all the 'Replace'
and 'With' entries (Replace tab). The same goes for the list of
'Exception's (Exceptions tab).

In the ..LibreOffice 3\Basis\share\autocorr directory are the
following files (installed by LO):

(i.e., Australian English, UK English, US English, and South African
English). This corresponds to the languages in AutoCorrect which have
entries for both replacements and exceptions.

I copied the UK English and named it
-- which ought to be the proper name for Canadian English. But when I
look at the AutoCorrect dialogue box, on the Replace tab, it remains

I got completely out of all LO applications (I don't use the pre-load
executable) and reopened Wrtier. I even rebooted, just to be sure.
Still empty.

Any ideas?
