Where does OO 4.1.7 store program updates?

Issues with installing under all versions of MS Windows

Where does OO 4.1.7 store program updates?

Postby aragorn5182 » Sat Oct 12, 2019 6:19 am

Just installed Open Office 4.1.7 on HP laptop running Windows 10. Have 8 Gb RAM and 1 Tb HDD. On installation, program install location defaulted to One Drive. I changed it to C:\Program files (x86).

In OO Tools > Options > Online Update, default is also One Drive. Want to change it to go to OO program location on C:\ drive. There are multiple sub-directories under C:\Program files (x86)\OpenOffice4\. I'd guess that the updates likely go to C:\ . . . Open Office 4\program.

Does any one know if this is correct and if not, which sub-directory should I use to define update location in Options? Thanks!

Inactivate online update. It does not work and is good for nothing, currently. - Cheers

It sounds like you're confusing download location, unpacking location and program location. Updates are complete install files which should be downloaded to a download location. On my system, Tools > Options > Online Updates says "Download destination" and doesn't mention program location. After the install file has been downloaded to the download location, it should be run to unpack a set of installation files in the unpacking location. The installation files in the unpacking location then replace the existing program files in the program location. The default download location in Windows is usually set in the Web browser to the "Downloads" folder. Perhaps that has been changed to "One Drive". The default unpacking location is the Desktop of the administrator account used to perform the installation/update. The default program location is Program Files(X86).
