Description robert.funnell 2012-01-12 04:32:59 UTC
When installing LibO 3.5.0 Beta 2 I saw the message 'Please exit LOdev 3.5 and the LOdev 3.5 Quickstarter before you continue ...' although I have never installed any version of LibO on this computer. Presumably it was really referring to the fact that OOo was running. It seems that the message should not refer to a specific version of LibO, and should accommodate the possibility that it's OOo that needs to be closed.

Do you have a suggestion for the actual new text?
Comment 2 robert.funnell 2012-01-13 05:51:43 UTC
What about: "Please exit LibreOffice/OpenOffice.org and the corresponding Quickstarter before you continue. If you are using a multi-user system, also make sure that no other user has LibreOffice or OpenOffice.org open."

When I was doing this yesterday, after I exited from OOo and then clicked OK in this dialogue box, the installation terminated and I had to start it again. Perhaps this message should say 'and then restart the installation' rather than 'before you continue'?
