In our company, we use whitelisting software which compares SHA hashes of files with a database full of them. Any .dll or .exe file which does not have a whitelisted hash is not allowed to run on our windows systems.

We are trying to roll out LibreOffice to update our current OpenOffice install base, however we have found a problem whitelisting LibreOiffce.

I have installed LibreOffice on multiple windows xp machines, but each time I do, a large number of dlls come out with different hashes. This means that it's impossible to whitelist the application.

Is it possible that there is a way around this? I imagine that we can install it, but call our install overwrite the files which have a different hash to that on the server with a known good version, but this seems a little ridiculous.

It would certainly be preferable to have the installer ensure all installs are exactly the same, in terms of files saved to the disk.
