    OpenOffice MSI

    I am trying to install OpenOffice on all my client computers through GPO but I cant find a MSI Installer version of OpenOffice to do this. Can anyone help me, please?

    I've just had a look at my OpenOffice folder, when you extract is there is a msi in there, it will normally dump these in a folder before it runs it unless they have changed the initial installed from when I last did it.

    Don't bother installing OpenOffice. Get LibreOffice instead.

    www.libreoffice.org/download

    I'm afraid this doesn't work. But its ok because I've decided to use LibreOffice instead. Thanks anyway!

    The error I get is: Add operation failed. Unable to extract deployment information from the package. Run validation on the package to ensure that the package is correct.

    Is the MSI corrupt? Have you tried installing it before deploying it?
