[Solved] Download OpenOffice.org

Postby cheshs » Sun Nov 13, 2011 12:10 pm

Hi everyone, I'm hoping someone can help me.
I'm trying to download Open Office on my laptop. Every time I attempt to download it jumps to a page called PlanetMIRROR and then stops. What am I doing wrong?
The laptop has Windows 7.
I have searched for a solution and can't find one so I'm hoping someone here can help me.
Thanks.

You have to drill down through the PlanetMirror links to find the appropriate version for your computer. If you are looking for US_english, a direct link is

I'm glad it worked for you. You may find it informative to drill down through the PlanetMirror site to learn site navigation. Select an archive from the dropdown on the left, then follow the links down - stable will open the current OOo distribution offerings. Clicking on any blue link usually takes you in to that link.
