I tried to download Open Office, Mac OS 10.7 plus, but....

Jan Wiklund
.... now I can see it as an icon of the same kind as an usb stick,  
named OpenOffice, and it's completely dead.  When I click at the icon,  
a message opens, which says (in Swedish, which is my language) that  
Open Office has been developed by an unknown developer and can't be  
opened.

What shall I do?

 From the release notes, which everyone should read before installing the program:
https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/OOOUSERS/AOO+4.1.4+Release+Notes#AOO4.1.4ReleaseNotes-KnownIssues

    Known Issues
    For macOS users:
    Apache OpenOffice 4.1.4 will be flagged by the Gatekeeper facility in Mac OS X. This is a
    feature to help guard against malware on recent Mac OS X systems.
    For Mac OS X up to 10.11 "El Capitan": There is a procedure laid out at the following link
    to allow applications not installed from the Mac App store to run. See the Mac support article.
    For Mac OS X 10.12 "Sierra": In Finder, Control-click or right click the icon of the app.
    Select Open from the top of contextual menu that appears. Click Open in the dialog box. If
    prompted, enter an administrator name and password.This is needed just the first time you
    launch Apache OpenOffice.

Re: I tried to download Open Office, Mac OS 10.7 plus, but....

zahra a
hello.

 One way your Mac makes sure you’re (relatively safe) from rogue apps
is what’s called Gatekeeper. By default, this bit of software only
allows you to install verified apps from the Mac App Store on your
Mac. What if, however, you want to download software from a Mac
developer who doesn’t distribute their software on the Mac App Store?
You’ll need to bypass Gatekeeper in order to do so.
Here’s how to do that safely.
Launch your System Preferences app and head to the Security & Privacy
preference pane. You have three choices here. You can set Gatekeeper
to Allow applications downloaded from the Mac App Store, the Mac App
Store and identified developers, or Anywhere. The safest of these
options is obviously the first one, as it will keep any software not
downloaded via the Mac App Store from running on your Mac.
 Keep either of the top two options enabled, and when you download any
app that isn’t from the Mac App Store, nor from an identified
developer, your Mac won’t let you run it.
If you want to bypass this security feature, find the offending app,
and right click on it. That’s a two-finger click on a Macbook
trackpad, a Control-click on a single button mouse, or the actual
right mouse button on a multi-button mouse.
Choose Open in the pop up menu, and then choose Open on the resulting
dialog box, which will tell you that the app you’re trying to open is
from an unidentified developer. Once you choose to Open it this way,
the app will no longer trigger a Gatekeeper warning, so be sure you
know and trust the developer you got the app from.

hope that help, God bless you.
