1.4 Final not starting OpenOffice on Windows - fix

If you are using OpenOffice with 1.4 Community Final from the setup.exe bundle and it isn't being started, it may be because the start_oo.bat is not being found.

The easiest way to fix this is to edit the alfresco.bat file and change the following line:

if not "%OPENOFFICE_PATH%" == "" call "start_oo.bat"

to (as a single line):

if not "%OPENOFFICE_PATH%" == "" call "%OPENOFFICE_PATH%\OpenOfficePortable.exe" "-accept=socket,host=localhost,port=8100;urp;StarOffice.ServiceManager" -nologo -headless

You should be able to check by seeing the soffice.bin process running (either via the Windows Task Manager or the process.exe in the Alfresco bin folder).

Cheers
Paul.
