Hi :)
I don't think it's really possible.  If you do manage it then the saving on drive-space and other 
resources is almost minimal.  LibreOffice is much more tightly integrated than MS Office and really 
doesn't work the same way at all.  

It's not a collection of different programs but is instead a central core with different surfaces 
added on top.  When using the different surfaces we think of them as different programs.  We call 
the different surfaces "modules" and one module is "Writer".  

If you want 2 programs that are compatible with LibreOffice and use both the Doc/DocX type formats 
of MSO and the ODFs of everyone else (plus recent versions of MSO now) then you might like "Gnome 
Note that both together might have a smaller foot-print than LO or anything else but Gnumeric is 
possibly better than Excel or Calc in many ways.  Operating Systems designed for tiny or ancient 
machines often include them instead of LO but so do OSes that want to be very fast and light.

Tom :)

Subject: [libreoffice-users] Silent install with only Writer and Calc


I'm trying to do a silent install (on Windows) with only Writer and Calc but
I can't find anything to do that.
When I tried to add the command line REMOVE=gm_p_Draw_bin to
msiexec /i  "c:\LibreOffice_4.0.4_Win_x86.msi" ADDLOCAL=ALL
REMOVE=gm_p_Draw_bin /passive
it does not work.
I also tried to remove the components I don't want in the msi file with ORCA
program but a feature error appears installing it.

Is anyone  made it?
