Thank you Regina.

Due to a quirk in DroidMail I am enclosing my responses in brackets

[like this]

to distinguish them from the text to which I'm responding.

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?

[The cleanup to which I referred performed at least the first two of these.]

Empty trash.
Empty all temp or tmp folders.

[I will have to look up how to do the next one for FireFox.]

Empty the cache of your browser and/or move the location for the cache of you browser to drive D.

[All of this misses my point which is that the installer requires space on one specific volume 
(I.e. on C:) and that this disk usage apparently cannot be redirected to another volume (e.g. D:). 
It looks like I might be able to migrate one application (Pegasus Mail) from volume C: to volume 
D:. That's simply a work-around — not a fix for the basic problem.]
