Problem installing FreeOffice revision 698

Post by Ambaquista » Thu Jan 29, 2015 12:36 pm

I download and install/update SoftMaker FreeOffice for Windows revision 698 and when I try to launch TextMaker, I get this message:
---------------------------
TextMaker
---------------------------
Unable to find a valid UI language file.
Please reinstall this application.
---------------------------
and exit!
I make a Repair instalation... samething
I make a Change instalation... samething!

The only diferrence in my instaling is changing the install folder:
c:\Utilities\SoftMaker FreeOffice\
in place of the common
c:\Program Files (x86)\SoftMaker FreeOffice\

Any idea?

Please delete the following folders and try again:

- C:\Users\USERNAME\Documents\SoftMaker
- C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\SoftMaker
- C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files (x86)\SoftMaker FreeOffice

No. Same result!
I delete the 3 folders, restart the computer and... same message!

So I decide to uninstall the program and do another install
And it works! But... with the program in the folder
c:\Program Files (x86)\SoftMaker FreeOffice\
and docs in the folder
e:\Documents\SoftMaker\

So I need to make a portable instalation, uninstall the actual program, and copy the portable instalation to the folder
c:\Utilities\SoftMaker FreeOffice\

Thank you for your support

You can use the USB-setup to install it on a USB stick:
