Failure to install

Postby vicfurb » Tue Jun 18, 2019 8:01 pm

I have OpenOffice 4.1.6 on my windows 10 computer and things are great,except for my hard drive...I'm told it could go at anytime. It is 6 or 7 yrs old, so I'm not surprised. I'm moving to my backup computer, which is an iMac, 10.14.4 Mojave. I want to use openOffice on the iMac because almost all of my files I created over several years were done in OpenOffice. Yesterday, I downloaded Open Office (4.1.6 ) to the iMac. It seems to have downloaded properly. However, the iMac would not let me install the program.It said that the program did not come from the App Store, therefore could
not be installed.This seems strange to me, as last week I installed 2 other programs that did not come from the app. store. Chances are I'm not doing something right, so it looks like I 'm in need of some help. So if you can assist me with this matter. I sure would appreciate it.

Thanks, Vic
