speclink installation
SDK configure: asks for Office or URE 121393 feature-info:
A change was necessary in the SDK so that the SDK can now be used with either an Office or with the new URE. When configuring the SDK, there is now an additional question (after the first one about the "Office Software Development Kit directory"), namely Use an installed Office or an installed UNO Runtime Environment (Office/URE) [Office]: If "Office" (case insensitive) or an empty string is entered, the SDK is configured to use an Office, and configuration continues as before. If "URE" (case insensitive) is entered, the SDK is configured to use a URE.
