Description carsten.driesner 2005-07-14 14:15:54 UTC
Due to the usage of the package component to access the compressed image zip
file, VCL is not able to open message boxes without UNO. 
Our startup code is able to detect a non-working UNO environment, but cannot
show this info to the user.

cd: Better summary.
Comment 2 philipp.lohmann 2005-07-14 14:34:07 UTC
true, due to the necessity for break iteration - which is a UNO service. The
result of primitive break iteration (e.g. breaking on spaces) would not look
acceptable in at least some languages; that at least was the reasoning at the
time (during creation of 1.0 and unicode transition).

reassigned to HDU.
Comment 7 2006-12-13 09:23:52 UTC
Having a specialized message box for fatal errors is a good idea.

In a fatal situation (e.g. when relatively simple things such as bootstrapping 
OOo fail) nobody should expect to get an internationalized accessible 
non-modal dialog with line-wrapped text, fancy images, customized fonts, etc.

set target 3.x
