Subject: Re: [libreoffice-users] Upgrade Problem on Windows


What I can imagine is the following: Some C++ redistributables. Please try a parallel installation 
(start the installer with the option "/a"). 

[ I was double clicking D:\Downloads\LibreOffice_4.1.5_Win_x86.msi

How do I add option /a? ]

This is not a installation, bit an extraction. If you have questions, please ask :)

[ "Installation" | "extraction" ? Are you saying that what I'm doing should be called an extraction 
or that option /a makes it an extraction? I think somebody stated that if extracted rather than 
installed, the new version would NOT be invoked by double clicking a document (e.g. pizzalog.ods).

I selected a "Typical" setup. My first indication of trouble is a window titled "LibreOffice - Installation Wizard" that says Out of Disk Space …. The highlighted volume is C:. The 
display now says that volume has 188MB available but needs 779MB. 

I clicked OK (the only option) and got a Custom Setup window with the same title. Under "Optional 
Components -> Dictionaries" I deselected French and Spanish leaving only English. Under "Additional 
user interface languages I deselected English (South Africa) and English (United Kingdom) leaving 
only English (United States). The required space on C: was reduced to 762MB which was still far too 
much. I should add that 1168KB was required on D: to this point. 

My next step was to "Change" the "Install to" Folder name from 
  C:\Program Files\LibreOffice 4\ 
  D:\Program Files\LibreOffice 4\ 
which changed the requirements on C: and D: to 427MB and 335MB respectively. 

I see no way to reduce the space required on volume C: any further. Ideally I want to eliminate it 
altogether but I recognize that this is an imperfect world and that Windows does not improve on 
that observation. ]

Sorry for reply-all. /me on mobile....

[ Yes. I took a peek at the headers and saw that you're using K-9 Mail. I'm using MailDroid. Both 
are eMail apps on Android devices. :-) 

For the identity I use to post to this list I have set header

Reply-To: LO Users <>

which means that by default "Reply" will send to the list and "Reply-all" will send to both the 
list, me, and anyone else to whom I may have addressed my eMail. ]

Liebe Grüße, / Yours,
Florian Reisinger

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.

[ Oops. DroidMail should have been MailDroid, :-) ]

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 basi c problem.]
