Not really a good idea. Particularly not if you've done this in your system32 directory.
MS VC R stands fro MicroSoft Visual C Runtime. Typically each new version of the MS Visual C++ Compiler or Visual Studio Product comes with a new version of this Dll that contains most of the essential functionality of the common C libraries (opening files, manipulating strings, etc.) These runtime Dll are backward compatible so MSVCR90.DLL contains all functions of MSVCR80.DLL and accepts the same type of parameters for these functions. But not the other way round.
In other words sooner or later your will use one functionality of the OpenOffice installation that will use one of the new functions of the 90.dll and will cause the application to crash.
google for msvr90.dll or download the mysql extension
, install it an then search your user profile for the msvr90.dll. This extension includes the ..90.dll
And please follow the forum guidlines. Don't post into an existing thread. Better to start a new one and reference the other posting from this new thread. This one is marked as [Solved] it will be ignored by most of the regular users here. Your chance fo r an answer are low, and even more important as it is not your own thread (because you haven't started it) you can't mark the first post as [Solved] or [Issue] or whatever because you are not allowed to modify posts of others.
OpenOffice 3.1.1 (2.4.3 until October 2009) and LibreOffice 3.3.2 on Windows 2000, AOO 3.4.1 on Windows 7
There are several macro languages in OOo, but none of them is called Visual Basic or VB(A)! Please call it OOo Basic, Star Basic or simply Basic.
