Installation Problems.

Gilbert Gabrielsen
I am a long time user of Open Office. I recently tried to install ver.
4.1.7. I had some problems so I decided to remove the old version and
install the newer one. Every time I try I get this message 'The feature you
are trying to use is on a CD-ROM or other removable disk that is not
available.       Insert the 'Open Office.org' 3.2 disk and click ok'. Any
help you can give me with this problem would be appreciated. This is my
second request. Gilbert Gabrielsen at [hidden email].

You can download an reinstall OO 3.2; it should then be capable of being uninstalled.

Or, you could download a utility such as CCleaner and tell it to remove OpenOffice 3.2; OO 4.1.7 should then install.

Am I right that OO 4.1.7 can be installed from the URL https://www.openoffice.org/download/?  There's a British/US option to choose among many languages.  No Discs.

Yours aye,
Geoffrey

OpenOffice.org is download only.

Re: Installation Problems.

Drew Jensen
There is a long history of OpenOffice.org being offered on CD and DVD.

This was at times with the blessings of the old owners of the Intellectual
Property rights to the URL, Sun Microsystems, and numerous individual
boosters, and some commercial operations.

The practice went on after the IP was sold to Oracle and then granted to
Apache Software Foundation with regards to boosters and commercial
operations right down to today.

You may want to nudge folks to only using the download from the
openoffice.org URL, that Apache OpenOffice continues to use,  but no one
should act surprised that some folks will have acquired it via CD or DVD.

Best wishes,

Drew

Re: Installation Problems.

Bruce Pierson
I would be wary of getting it on a CD these days.  There are more than a
few vendors that will sell you a CD with Open Office on it.  However, the
CD may have other little nasties on it as well most of which you do not
want.  If you have to pay for the software beware.

of speaking, even if only to convey that thing you think everyone else is
saying. Make an effort to separate yourself from the Internet. Read books.”*

Re: Installation Problems.

Drew Jensen
Granted that in 2020 it feels odd to still be buying DVD's with the
software on it but there is still a legitimate market for it.

I agree that there is the possibility to get things you don't want with it
but there are also folks playing it straight.

They add value by including extras, one vendor in particular has issued a
new DVD yearly, they include a custom windows installer, all the language
packs, lots of free fonts, bunches of added templates and manuals. The DVD
includes Windows and Mac binaries. They are clear in their marketing
material that support, for everything other then the installer, comes from
the AOO community.

They also charge are very reasonable price of around 10 USD or 8 Euro.
