Thanks Regina.  I'll check out the bootstrap.ini file.
The 'new' user would be new to LO.  Fortunately we don't have a lot of turn-over in our personnel.

Hi Karen,

We are using Windows XP, SP3.  Applications and user's files are stored on
the network.  I'm able to install LO 3.4.2 to the network, and I'm able to
distribute the applications to various users.  However, the Write Path for
users' files and temp files shows the C: drive.

Is the folder, containing the user's files mapped to a drive letter, 
e.g. U: ? In that case you can edit the bootstap.ini and point to that 

Do you have a true domain, so that the user profile is copied to the 
server, when the user logout? Then you need not worry, that it is C: The 
temp folder, which LO uses is not the system temp folder, but a temp 
folder in the profile.

Is there a way to have those paths changed to use network variables?  We use
'DEPT' and 'USER' or 'DEPTNAME' and 'USERNAME' for our login variables.  I
know that the registrymodifications.xcu can be edited each time a new user
signs on, but is there a way to use variables in the xcu file?  I've tried
putting the variables in quotes, or enclosing them with percent (%) signs,
but neither of those options work.

The bootstrap.ini uses syntax like $SYSUSERCONFIG for the folder with 
the users WinXP profile, or $ORIGIN for the folder with the file 
bootstrap.ini. I don't know which variables are known besides that two.

Another way: If your users don't need to start LO with double click on a 
file, you can give them a start icon, which calls LO with the 
-env:UserInstallation= parameter.

With "new" user do you mean new to the system or new to LO?

Kind regards
