[Solved] OpenOffice 4.1.7 will not install

Postby mali » Tue Dec 03, 2019 4:05 pm

I have Windows 10 and trying to download 4.1.7 but keep getting "Error opening file for writing" message. I'm using Firefox version 70.0.1 (64bit). Please help!

That seems to be a download problem, not an OpenOffice install problem. Your browser should place all downloaded files in a dedicated folder, to which it has access. Have you perchance changed that folder as a destination for the OpenOffice download? If so, change it back to normal, then, when download is finished, double click on the downloaded file to install OO. It may be that you will need to do that last step with Administrator rights.

Actually, I found the problem. Somehow the Ransomware under Security was turned-on; ;turned it off and I was able to download the latest Version 4.1.7. Thanks for the follow-up!
