I am trying to install OpenOffice on to a few Windwos XP machines in my office, the machines will be used by a number of different people with roaming profiles.
Currently I have installed the product and it works fine for me, as Administrator, but whenever a standard user tries to use it we get a number of errors. These include being asked to repair it due to a version not being compatible with the sversion.ini file, it cannot repair it though!
I have tried loads of things so please help,
Mat.

Hi Mat,
Did you do the /net install, and then have all the users do their own installs? What happens when the users run the repair program?
I'm a little fuzzy on the roaming profile thing...that might be confusing OOo about who's using it.
- If you didn't do the /net install i.e. installing on a server and then having each user access the setup file on the server, lmk.
- If you did, try just renaming the sversion file and having users try again.
You might want to consider having each user just have a normal standalone install, if that's an option.
