Sorry, if I appeared to jump to a conclusion. It is just that I have seen different reports
of either LO or OOo not running if the other is running.

There was one in the OOo users list about portable LO not starting because OOo was active.
So there are conflicts. No implication that this is intentional just a fact of originally
being the same codebase. Registrations on various systems is hard. I've had the "joy" of writing
installation code for .Net assemblies and that is not fun.
