1. StarOffice 7 Running on eCom 1.2
Reply to this topic with quote Modify your message
I have StarOffice 7 installed and running great on my main machine. Now I tried installing it on a new install of eCom 1.2, but it will not install until I copy system.dat and user.dat files from my old install of eCom 1.2. Does anybody know how StarOffice modifies these filles or how information is stored in these files?

You should not copy the *.dat files from another machine. I think there may be drive letters and path info embedded in the files.

StarOffice7 will not directly install on OS/2 or eComStation. Also SO7 is at the OpenOffice.org 1.0 or 1.01 level.
Try the OpenOffice.org 1.1.4 modified version from Innotek

That's what information I am looking for the embedded info that StarOffice puts there. So I don't have to copy the *.dat files. Which still works without problems because the setups are the same. Is there any program that can read the data from the *.dat files?

StarOffice7 will not directly install on OS/2 or eComStation. Also SO7 is at the OpenOffice.org 1.0 or 1.01 level.

StarOffice 7 installs for me and works great. Has not crashed once yet. See attached screenshot.

Hi folks,

user.dat and system.dat are the two (binary) files that the windows registry is made of. If you run regedit in windows, it'll show you nice trees with key/value pairs.
Unfortunately, this information is not accessible from without Windoze except if you run either the windows-version of regedit and choose to export the registry (into a text-mode .reg file) or you have a win9x system which has a DOS-mode regedit with commandline parameters that can be used to export/(re-)create the registry file from/into a text file.

I don't know if there is a tool for dealing with windows binary registry files (the two .dat) under OS/2, but I doubt... anyway: As I said - what needs to be done is
1) rebuild a "windows registry" from the two .dat files
2) export that registry into a plain-text .reg file
I could try that if you send me the .dat files

That's for the .dat stuff. As for the SO7 issues, I can't tell.

Greetings
Thomas
