Openoffice 4.1.6

Issues with installing under all versions of MS Windows

Openoffice 4.1.6

Postby Kimmay25 » Wed Feb 20, 2019 6:07 pm

Hello!!! I use the presentation power point slides for my busy. Every other week when I open openoffice 4.1.6, my folders that i keep all week long turn red. When I open them, it red and says "most of the features of PowerPoint have been disable because it hasn't been active". What does that mean? I thought openoffice was free? And every other week I uninstall the program about 10 times and finally I get it to work. What am I doing wrong?

This may be because a trial version of MS Office installed with Windows 10 has expired; you may need to set your presentation file type to open with OpenOffice, not with MS Office - you will be setting a File Association for an .odp or .ppt type file. If you are using OpenOffice Impress to make and show your presentations, you would be better to use .odp format (Impress's native format).

Google is your friend. It appears that when you haven't activated MS Office, most functionality will be disabled after a while. That has nothing to do with OpenOffice, as Rory already pointed out. If you don't intend to use MS Office, it's better to uninstall that, so you don't get those annoying error messages anymore.
