I have tested with LibreOffice 4.3.1 on Windows 8.1 (virtual machine), and both installation and deinstallation seems to work fine. In contrast to the Mac version, no restart of LibreOffice is needed after installation to get the extension to work (but that seems to be an artefact of LibreOffice for Mac, and not something specific to LO-Voikko).

I first installed in LibreOffice 3.6, but LO-Voikko would not run. I believe the trunk code requires LO 4.1 or newer, right?

I had a single hickup the first time I started LO 4.3.1, but that was probably because I installed LO 4.3.1 on top of 3.6. All problems disappeared after I removed the user settings dir and started LO again. After that I have seen no problems.

I assume that I can use the present extension as a basis for creating other LO-Voikko oxt’s for Windows for other languages:)

This looks great! Thanks a lot :)
