windows vista refuses open office suite

Discussion in 'Windows Vista General Discussion' started by Theseus Tired, Mar 18, 2007.

  1. Tried loading open office suite 2.01 from a MaximumPC CD onto a new Acer
    Aspire notebook I just bought running Vista OS. Got "Error opening
    software/sysdetect.exe" as soon as I closed the DVD drive, and then "Error
    opening software/apps/OOo_2.01_Win32Intel_install_wJRE.exe" when I clicked
    Install. Wil Vista be made to load this suite? Anyone know how? Theseus Tired

  2. OO is up to version 2.1 now. You could download that version.
    Michelle reported that OO messed up her laptop - she didn't say
    which brand she has. Uninstalling OO restored her laptop's function.
    Maybe she skipped installing Sun's JRE6 before installing OO.

    After doing that, download and install the almost 100MB OpenOffice 2.1:
