I had the same problem in Win2000 with OOo 1.0. First I did the
installation as Administrator. Then I logged in as normal user and
opening old StarOffice 5.2 documents did not work. I had to do a
repair installation to get OOo even start. After this things looked
good, then I noticed that saving in new OOo file format crashed the
whole thing. If I saved in old StarOffice format, it worked. The
crashing was caused by My Documents and Temporary directories pointing
to Administrator owned section. After setting these properties to new
value, it now seems to work. I would prefer having separate My
Documents directories for each user. Is this possible?
The bottom line: Even if OOo can not access some directory, it should
not crash as a result of this.
