Mountain Lion does not permit opening AOO3.4

Have a Mac. Just upgraded to Mountain Lion. When trying to open Oo3.4 it says Open Office is not recognized by Mac hence I cannot access files at all.

Hi and welcome to the forum!

It seems to be related to the Gatekeeper feature, see this topic on the mailnig list:

It has three levels of security options for downloading Apps. For a way to install unsigned Apps see this article: http://macperformanceguide.com/Mountain ... gning.html

Please add '[Solved]' at the beginning of your first post title (edit button) if your issue has been fixed.
AOO 4.1.6 on Xubuntu 18.10 and 4.1.5 on Windows 7 (with winPenPack port).

Hold down control while you open AOO and the program should open correctly - although I admit AOO is a program with which I have had problem.

I actually found the security setting so annoying that I turned it off. I often build programs and it was interfering with that.

Doesn't work for me. Open Office doesn't open. I don't get the dialogue box. Open Office is not an "app."

So, I've lost all my documents created in Open Office and in Windows. No one here seems to have a solution that works (I've tried them all).
The only thing that kind of worked was when I e-mailed a document to someone else, they were able to open it (I don't know how) and they e-mailed it back so that I could at least see it. It was in a different format so I had to re-create it by hand.
Wow! Totally frustrating.

What exactly have you tried? Be specific. Details are needed to figure out what your problem is.

Is OpenOffice in installed in your Applications folder?
Did you reset your user profile?
What did you mean when you said " Open Office is not an "app." " ?

SOLVED. I'm running Mac 10.8.3 When I tried opening open office from any other icon or location, control+click refused to open the program or give me a workable menu. But when I used control+click from INSIDE the Applications folder, a menu appeared that allowed me to choose Open. I also got a "warning" message that selecting this would always allow Open Office to open on this Mac. Aw, shucks.

If you're getting this error, you should be able to open System Preferences > Security & Privacy and see a notification that Open Office is blocked, and there should be a button to the right that says something along the lines of "open anyways". After clicking this button, you should be able to open Open Office the normal way you'd open an application (without having to ctrl + click).

Hope that helps.
