Hi again Virgil

Why don't you run it from your hard drive? You can unpack it anywhere and 
it won't affect the installed version in any way...

The last time I installed a new version, I went from 3.5.7 to 4.0.5. The 
version 4 completely deleted my 3.5.7, which I did *not* want. I later
out on this list that such was apparently normal behavior. I don't want to 
risk the same thing happening again.

If you unpack LibreOffice Portable or X-LibreOffice to your hard drive (e.g.
to C:\X-LibreOffice412) it will remain contained in the unpack folder. It
does *not* overwrite *any* files and it will not use your Profile files. So, 
all is completely separate.

In fact if you miss some feature in version 3.5.7 you can get the
X-LibreOffice 3.5.7 release and run it *simultaneously* with version 4.0.5
