What is the audience of this program? Everyone, who wants to perform a parallel installation of LibreOffice without using the command line. The aim was to give You the total control of what will be done, but it should be intuitive from the first time you use this program. Also downloading the latest LibreOffice build should be as easy and with least possible number of clicks. Also it should be a tool for the QA - Team of LibreOffice to have an easy and quick access to all the versions available. - Florian Reisinger
This tool allows to do Server Installations of LibO without deeper knowledge about the WINDOWS installation process. A Server Installation is independent from the normal LibO Installation and does not interact with that other LibO.
The Server Installation can be used for tests with experimental LibO versions and if you additionally need a particular LibO Version because the feature is still only available in experimental versions or broken in your current normal LibO installation.
The GUI Installer is not necessary for Installation of LibO Master Versions from http://dev-builds.libreoffice.org/daily/Win-x86@6/master/ (and similar), these Master Versions will be installed independent from the normal stable LibO version by default. But of course you also can install a Master Version (or stable version) using the GUI Installer, for example if you want that that version will not be overwritten by later (Master) installations.
