[Solved] Apple won't let OpenOffice install

I just upgraded to OpenOffice 4.1.5 after using previous versions for years. Apple won't let me open the app saying it is from an unrecognized developer.

I've been working on a doc in 4.1.1 and now can't retrieve it.

HELP! Thanks.

Did you try to Google the fine print in the message?

This is caused by Apple Gatekeeper

You have to tell GateKeeper to trust this application and permit it to install.
