How do I install OpenOffice.org on Windows?


If you have downloaded the binary file for Windows from OpenOffice.org, it is an self-extracting EXE file.

  • Double-click the file to start the installation.
You will be asked for a temporary folder to extract the files that are needed for installation. By default this is a new folder on your desktop. You can enter any other drive and folder.
Next, the files will be extracted to the folder and the Setup.exe program inside that folder is started automatically.
  • Double-click the file named Setup.exe if it does not start automatically.
A guided installation dialog will begin and will step you through the installation process.
  • If you want to install to another drive and folder than the default 'C:\Program files', choose the User Defined setup and change the path.
For OOo 3.0, the following two folders are created:
'C:\Program files\OpenOffice.org' 
'C:\Program files\OpenOffice.org 3.0'
  • After installation finished, you can delete the temporary folder on your desktop and the big downloaded file, if you want.
  • Start OOo with the desktop icon, or from the OpenOffice.org menu in your Start menu.
