[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? ]

Click on Start. There click on Run. You get an input line with label 'Open'. Enter the text


Now you get a command line window. Enter the following texts and finish each line with enter.


cd Downloads

msciexec /a LibreOffice_4.1.5_Win_x86.msi

The reaction has a little bit delay. But then the installation wizard of LibreOffice should start.

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).

It will tell you that the files are to be _extracted_ to a net work drive. There you get the option to choose the destination, in your case drive D. It is correct, that this does not add any registry entries to provide "call by doubleclick". But you can change that later. First you need to get this extraction and then we will help you with the next steps.

Kind regards
