Hello,

My OS is Windows 7 Pro. after I setup OpenOffice3.4.1manally there is only some *.xcd files in folder D:\OO3\Basis\share\registry like calc.xcd, writer.xcd, and no subfolder.

My problem is that I couldn't finished the installation by msi file.

Thanks

It is a long time since I have installed on Windows, and certainly never on Windows 7, but as far as I remember there is a directory in the unpacked install files, which should be on your desktop, containing setup.exe. You may also need to log on to your computer as Administrator, or use an account with full Adminisdtrator rights, and after such log on, right click on the Install folder and select "Run as Administrator".
