Description Andreas Frena 2012-08-22 12:31:29 UTC
When %appdata% is an UNC share path, all user options will not be saved in

Version 3.4 works fine. Version 3.5 has the same problem.

(Can not reproduce with a quick check of current master on a Windows 7 VM, pointing UserInstallation at file://vboxsrv/share/USER on a vbox-provided volume shared with the Linux host.)
Comment 2 Andreas Frena 2012-08-22 15:40:49 UTC
We use 4 Terminal Server Windows 2008R2. Our %APPDATA% directory points to a file server by UNC path. Our windows envoirment variable contains "APPDATA=\\fileserver\FOLDERR$\FOLDERR\username\AppData\Roaming". All user options normally will be saved in "%appdata%\LibreOffice\3\user\registrymodifications.xcu". In Version 3.4 all works fine. In Version 3.5 and Version 3.6 the file will not be updated when the user makes option changes.
