[Solved] OpenOoffice 4.1.7 install

Postby jdp1924 » Wed Oct 09, 2019 10:46 am

Cannot instal and get past message" please close 4.1.7 and try again". I have deleted 4.1.6 and cleared all shortcuts but still the same message. Any ideas please???

Start Taskmanager (Ctrl Shift Esc) and kill all soffice processes then try installing again.

Is there more to the error message, perhaps along the lines of "Please exit OpenOffice 4.1.n and quickstarter before you continue"?

If so, this topic may have the solution.
