Hi James,

After performing a cleanup on the volume there is only 207MB
available on C: on a Windows XP system on which I'm working. After I
specified that LO be installed on volume D: the installer still
requires 427MB on C:. I hesitate to compress volume C:.

Volume, Size, Available, Needed C:, 15GB, 207MB, 427MB D:, 107GB,
61GB, 352MB F:, 16GB, 6694MB, 0KB

Is there any way to avoid using C:?

(Growl! Windows. Bah, humbug!)

Do you have used already methods to get more free place on drive C?
Empty trash.
Empty all temp or tmp folders.
Empty the cache of your broswer and/or move the location for the cache of
you browser to drive D.

You can try this:
Uninstall the old version before you install the new one. Then there
might be enough place on C, because the new version isn't significant
larger then the old one.

1. Unpack to a folder on D. The installer has a button to choose the
2. Use the custom installation. There you can set the destination folder.

If it still does not work, then the default temp folder can not grow
large enough. You can try to set a new location for the temp folder in the
Windows XP settings.

Or a different way. Do not install using the installer, but make an
administative installation. You will get a full usable LO, but no system
integration. Therefore double click a file to open it in LO will not work
out-of-the-box. You can put a link to soffice.exe on your desktop to get a
quick access, or you assign the file name extension to soffice.exe later on
explicitly by using "open with...".

Another copuple of things to increase available space on drive C are:

   - Change the virtual memory location, if it's still on drive C move to D
   - A more complex one is to increase size of partition C
