[Solved] OpenOffice won't open

Postby Baja » Wed Nov 22, 2017 3:47 pm

I have downloaded OpenOffice and I have found it won't open unless I allow it access to the internet through my firewall. I have very little need for the program to access the internet and am wondering if it is possible to open the program without allowing it access to the internet. Thanks.

There is a option for looking for online updates. Go to the menu Tools -> Options, expand the OpenOffice list on the left and click Online Update. If you turn off Check For Updates Automatically, OpenOffice should not access the internet at all, as far as I know.
