Hi Folks, Is there a parameter to set OpenGL to disbaled while deploying the software? Another possible option would be to deploy a settings file where the option is turned of but i couldnt find the right file where this option is stored. Version is

Any Help is appreciated and thanks in advance!

PS: With the line "During installation you can set these properties. The list is not complete, here are some examples:" isn't helpful at all ;)

That is not a task for deployment stage; that is post-deployment configuration, which is also covered on that page..

I'd say that preferred would be using ADMX in Windows AD domains; however, using .xcd files is, of course, also possible. One would need to backup one's registrymodifications.xcu, then toggle OpenGL and exit LO, then diff the updated registrymodifications.xcu with its backup to find the relevant setting, which would be in this case

<item oor:path="/org.openoffice.Office.Common/VCL"><prop oor:name="UseOpenGL" oor:op="fuse"><value>false</value></prop></item>

... and then create own .xcd like

<?xml version="1.0"?> 
<oor:data xmlns:xs="" xmlns:xsi="" 
  <dependency file="main" />
  <oor:component-data xmlns:install="" oor:name="Common" oor:package="org.openoffice.Office">
    <node oor:name="VCL">
      <prop oor:name="UseOpenGL"  oor:op="fuse" oor:type="xs:boolean"> 

... which you put into C:\Program Files\share\registry on user boxes.

Thanks! This pointed me to the right direction.

I'm relativly new to this topic and wasn't sure about how the config files work. Now I'm able to deploy my config thanks to your help.
