The first time that you start Apache OpenOffice, a wizard opens to guide you through the registration process. You can also start this process if you choose the Help → Registration menu item in any Apache OpenOffice program. If you want, you can use a configuration file to deactivate the registration wizard as well as the Registration menu command.

You can only perform this task during the first start up of Apache OpenOffice after you install Apache OpenOffice.

  4. On the step 4 Registration page, select I do not want to register, and then click the Finish button.
