I have 3.6, 4.1dev. and AOO 4.0 installed together on my mac.

Yes if one or both are fully installed (as opposed to /A administrative installs) they will
interfere in subtle ways.
Actions to mitigate:
1) Disable the Quickstarter for both during installation -- the TDF LibreOffice and Apache
OpenOffice versions will conflict--best if both are off. Done from AppWiz.cpl and a modify
installation of both.
2) Also, only one or the other should have the Windows Explorer Integration enabled (it provides a
thumbnail view of ODF documents) in Desktop or Thumbnail views in Windows Explorer (Desktop and
other folder views). Personally I also leave that unchecked when installing.
3) Finally, if using the "release" rather than development builds. The Windows registry will be
written with file associations--the two programs should coexist to open a file type, but only one can be set
as the default for any particular ODF or MS Office format. So keep track of that.

I think it's the same conflicts as between any 2 versions of LibreOffice or any 2 versions of AOO
or OOo. Basically avoid having both open at the same time. That might mean turning off the
Quickstarter of both of them.

Are there any known conflicts with having LO 4.0.4 and AOO 4.0 installed on the same computer? In
my never-ending, obsessive (and admittedly futile) search for computing perfection, I want to try
both programs to see which better meets my techno-needs.
