I have downloaded the file OOo_3.1.1_Win32Intel_install_wJRE_en-US.exe form 4 different sources and each time installation fails with the message 'Unable to write to file cli_basetypes.dll'. This file is not on my system, XP SP3. Can anyone help please?

Following a suggestion in the Open Office Forum, I downloaded and installed the non Java version without a problem.

If you Google the filename you will get more info. I didn't find it very helpful.

Was going to give you the same advice (Google) , after I found this info on what it is & where it "should" be installed - in the GAC :-

http://wiki.services.openoffice.org/wiki/Documenta...

This site offers replacement files for corrupted downloads ; if you choose ttat option :-

http://download.corruptedfilerepair.com/post/2008/...

(Didn't have the opportunity to post last night.)

Always useful to know in case it happens again - for whatever reason - hopefully not !:o))

Hi all,
If you want to download OOo without Java(tm) JRE, here's the link-untick the box "Include the Java JRE with this download", find your language/platform-proceed with download. http://download.openoffice.org/other

My upgrade of OpenOffice.org from 3.1 to 3.1.1 failed with repeated "Internal Error 2908" errors and "Error 1935". Other people have encountered this problem. Supposedly overcome by deleting the following registry key:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Cur rentVersion\Installer\UserData\S-1-5-21-329068152- 1935655697-1801674531-1004\Components\AD95649F0685 25549B26938D7D18FEA7]
"B3414A45B4B628042B8446B35265C1BC"="c?\\WINDOWS\\s ystem32\\rgb9rast_2.dll"
http://www.add-in-express.com/creating-addins-blog...

Reportedly the problem can also be solved by temporarily renaming MSCOREE.DLL in windows\system32 (part of Microsoft .NET runtime)
http://user.services.openoffice.org/en/forum/viewt...

The problem is evidently caused by a bug in the installer for Microsoft .NET runtime.

Unfortunately, neither of the suggested workarounds helped me and I am still at the insecure rev of OpenOffice.org.
