It is the last line of bootstrap.ini that needs to be modified. This is
something that I have been doing for a very long time. This is the line:


Since I am using Ubuntu, this is in the bootstraprc file. What I have
been doing is to change the 4 to the version including major changes.
For example, this is the line I use for


For the, I use 7.2 instead of 7.3. This allows me to set the

one was used to open an embedded database while the other was used to
connect to an HSQLDB version 2.+ when I needed to do so. Even so, I

MS have set their attack (so called security) software to cripple the
excellent Separate Install GUI program (Se Bug 147831). Now I have to
manually set up parallel installs of different versions. Unfortunately,
installing and in parallel causes them to create
unwanted common profiles. I suspect that the bootstrap.ini needs to be
modified to prevent this, but I am not sure what needs to be
added/changed in the ini file. Here are my bootstrap.ini files:

LibreOffice Fresh
"C:\Program Files\LibreOffice\program\soffice.exe"
ProductKey=LibreOffice 7.3

LibreOffice Still
ProductKey=LibreOffice 7.2

"E:\LibreOffice 7.4.0-A0\program\soffice.exe"
ProductKey=LibreOfficeDev 7.4

Obviously a VM is a kludge workaround that I prefer to avoid.

Any pointers would be welcome.
