CCleaner 2.21's new OpenOffice 3.1 Cleaning support deletes the wrong file.
It deletes "Common.xcu", but this does not seem to be the right one to delete
as it "contains a lot of important user settings", according to a poster in the
following thread:

http://user.services...r...f=6&t=18588

The right file to delete seems to be "Histories.xcu".

EDIT: This qualifies as a major bug, as deleting common.xcu will indeed cause
loads of preferences to get lost!


Please be more careful when adding new OpenOffice cleaning features
in the future - there have been mistakes related to deleting "important"
OpenOffice files / settings in the past already :(

Hello,

I confirm that the version of CCleaner 2.21.940 deletes the Common.xcu very important file that contains the user settings (Options> OpenOffice.org> ...)

The Recent Files and URLs are located in the file Histories.xcu can be cleaned with CCleaner safe.

It would be nice if the next version fixes this bug.

Thank you for your very excellent program that I recommend in the french forum of OOo.

Hello,

I confirm that the version of CCleaner 2.21.940 deletes the Common.xcu very important file that contains the user settings (Options> OpenOffice.org> ...)

In the meantime, we must either disable Openofice3.1 in Programs or exclude cleaning Common.xcu

I can tell you that this bug is still current with Open Office 3.1.0 and the current version of CCleaner too.
If you more exact details.. I will be happy to provide them I do have the DXdiag program loaded.
I added a post on Open Office's site and was directed to this thread.

Input an exclusion into CCleaner:
1. Start CCleaner.
2. Click Options->Exclude->Add File
3. Now browse to the file that needs to be excluded.
CCleaner will no longer delete that file!

Piriform software help documentation is available at: http://www.piriform.com/docs

 

Don't PM me for advice! I'll only ask you to read forum rule #15.

The bug has been fixed in CCleaner 2.22.
Now the correct file (Histories.xcu) is deleted.
