OpenOffice Package for RM CC4 networks
I'm trying to create a package for OpenOffice, from what I've heard I think we need it so students can open ODT word documents.
I know there are compatibility packs, and they would be a good alternative, but I think the students will still need the software anyway so teachers can show an alternative to MS.
We have an RM CC4 network and I have tried the following things with no luck.
I tried to create a package on the build PC but that just created a package that kept reinstalling itself.
I then tried using the RM blueprint for version 3.2.1, as part of the proccess it asked for an extracted MSI, which it didn't like, enough though it was the same version.
Has anybody been able to get a OpenOffice package working on a CC4 network?
If so, where legally possible could someone send me a copy of their working MSI and/or blueprint.

I created a package using the previous RM blueprint (OO version 3.2.1) I notice today that RM have now produced a blueprint for OO version 3.3.0. Unfortunately it is apparently illegal to share the msi - that's why RM produce the blueprint.
Thanks to clareq from:

I've downloaded the blueprint for Open Office 3.3.0 and have an *.exe installer for this version but the blueprint needs an *.msi file. Anyone know where I can download this from please? Shame I can't get this from the open office website. I got the *.exe from Old Version Downloads - OldApps.com

Office 2007 with SP2 and later will open ODT files, have you checked?

Strange question but why is it illegal to share an open source package?
