Description Kohei Yoshida 2010-12-14 08:41:11 UTC
I'm trying to install LibO to drive E: because my drive C: has less than 700MB free space (in VM).  But the installer insists of requiring 1GB space in C: in addition to requiring ~500MB in E: when I choose to install E:\Program Files\LibreOffice 3.3.

I would expect that the installer imposes no space requirement in C: when installing to a different drive.

The dialog on the left shows that I'm trying to install to 

E:\Program Files\LibreOffice 3

and the dialog on the right is what I get when I click Next.  As you can see I have sufficient space in drive E.

Fridrich, is that for you?

The installer presumably wants to use the 1 GB for temporary files, and your profile ("home") directory is on the C: drive, right? Try setting the TEMP and/or TMP environment variables to point to some scratch folder on the E: drive before running the installer.

In my humble opinion, trying to run a Windows installation in 2010 with less than a few gigs of free space on C: is just silly.

But I know that many valued community members are strongly of different opinion and insist that if OOo has managed to be installed with X megs of free space, LibreOffice should continue to do so.

Anyway, isn't this a duplicate of bug #32250 ?

Yeah that's fine.  Let's call this a duplicate.

Indeed, pointing TMP and TEMP to drive E solved my problem.  Thanks a lot. :-)
