Have you tried LibreOffice?
Has anyone got an OpenOffice MSI ?
I'm trying to roll it out via GP but it doesn't seem to work with the MSI I have.
Has anyone else rolled it out ?
No, I have been asked for OpenOffice only as the users want to use it as a direct alternative to MS Office.
LibreOffice is OpenOffice but more business based and has an .MSI by default. It is made by the original creaters of OpenOffice and for all intent and purposes is OpenOffice.
I moved to it so i didn't have to keep creating .MSIs for the latest version of OpenOffice!
I should have mentioned that LibreOffice is OpenOffice (but much better).
Edit. Beaten to it by Achandler.On 28 September 2010, several members of the OpenOffice.org project formed a new group called "The Document Foundation". The Document Foundation created LibreOffice from their former project in response to Oracle Corporation's purchasing of Sun Microsystems over concerns that Oracle would either discontinue OpenOffice.org, or place restrictions on it as an open source project, as it had on Sun's OpenSolaris.
As a result of the fork of OpenOffice.org into LibreOffice, Oracle announced in April 2011 that it was terminating the commercial development of OpenOffice.org, therefore releasing the majority of the paid developers. (Source)
libre office also dosent haev the "nag screens" on fist startup etc
OK Thanks everyone...... I have the MSI now for libre..... but I get add operation failed when trying to add it to group policy.
Any Ideas ?
Do you get the same error with other MSIs?
No, Just this one but I think I'm going to script it anyway.
Just checking, is it stored in a place with the relevant access criteria to allow it to be installed? I know that if I add an MSI from somewhere else, it tends to throw me off, but I move it to my software store (which is set up with the right permissions etc) and it seems to work fine.
