OpenOffice 3.1.1 won't install!

Issues with installing under all versions of MS Windows

OpenOffice 3.1.1 won't install!

Postby ca1996 » Tue Sep 01, 2009 5:11 pm

I just recently downloaded OpenOffice 3.1.1 to upgrade my older version. When I try to install it, after extracting the files, it pops up a message saying, "Microsoft Office Outlook 2007 must be installed before you can install Microsoft Office Outlook 2007 with Business Contact Manager. Install Outlook from CD 1, and then start this installation again." I previously had the trial version of Microsoft Office Professional 2007 installed on my computer but deleted it after the trial expired. Why would OpenOffice need a program from Office 2007 to work? If you have Microsoft Office 2007, you really wouldn't need OpenOffice :D . Any tips on how to get this version of OpenOffice installed.

Try this utility http://support.microsoft.com/kb/290301. Download install and run it. Point it at the Office 2007 install.

I've now got the Windows Install CleanUp Utility installed. However, Microsoft Office 2007 is not in that list. I've already uninstalled it before I tried installing the OpenOffice 3.1.1.
