Description floeff+ooo 2003-04-14 17:13:26 UTC
It would be nice if the installation path was

I. if no previous OO installation is detected:
%PROGRAM_FILES%\ (thus, leaving out the version number)

II. if a previous OO installation is detected:
the path last used

It is very annoying having to correct the path manually...

Any news? :)

I think that this is better behaviour for the MS Windows users. The default 
installation directory should be: 
  o %PROGRAM_FILES%\  (without version) 
To the second point of floeff - it's already done, I tried it now. Installed 
1.1.2 in the C:\Program Files\ Than, run setup for OOo 1.1.3 
and installers asks me if I want to upgrade 1.0.2 or install 1.0.3 in the 
separate directory.
