How can I install OpenOffice.org so that it can be used by multiple users on the same machine?


OpenOffice.org version 1 (old)

Use the multiuser installation mechanism: As administrator call the setup program with the -net parameter. For example, when the setup command is used, type: ./setup -net (Linux) or setup.exe -net (Windows). Then when each user runs the application for the first time, they will be asked for setup information specific to their own account. Only per user configuration files will be kept in a directory specific to each user.

OpenOffice.org version 2 & 3 (current)

No special action is required. By default, OpenOffice.org 2 and 3 installs for use by all users on the machine. On Windows, you are asked if you want to install just for your own use or for all users. The Start menu entries are placed accordingly only in your Start menu or in the menu of all users.
