Good evening,

I am having some difficulty installing 3.3.0 version of Open Office as recommended by Secunia (Insecure program detected). Clicking on "Install" opens a "File not found window". Even unchecking -JRE doesn't help. Is that version still a beta one ?

To be noted : for several days my AV program has been alerting about OOO... archive Tar - "Avertissements" in French, while Secunia was still reporting Ok.

In a OOo page, clicking on Help/checking for update... response is : "checking for update failed".

At all hazards, I've restarted my computer and re-scanned with Secunia : no miracle happened.


Here is to-day's report :



---START---

Program Name:
OpenOffice.org 3.x

Insecure

Download Link:

C:\Program Files (x86)\OpenOffice.org 3\program\soffice.exe, version: 3.2.9498.500

Thank you for your help.

FWIW
Earlier today...I downloaded, saved and installed OOo 3.3.0 from
http://www.filehippo.com/download_openoffice/

Install (Run As Admin) was over the top of 3.2.1

OOo 3.3.0 Installer went about it's business of installing / updating / cleaning up as required. I declined the bloatware and opted for Default settings.

PSI > OpenOffice.org 3.x 3.3.9556.500
C:\Program Files\OpenOffice.org 3\program\soffice.exe

D'après http://download.openoffice.org/other.html , 3.3.0 n'est pas encore disponible en français.

Hi bjm and ddmarshall,

Thanks to you so much, I just succeeded downloading from Filehippo... even if not in French ! Secunia now reports OK !

Am I lucky to have been helped so soon and so simply !

Is there a French forum for Secunia ? ... and on this one : no smileys ? ;)

Thank you again and HAPPY NEW YEAR !!!!!

Presumably, the French Language Pack will be made available for v 3.3.0 asap ?
check back at http://download.openoffice.org/other.html ..... or ...
Contact OOo at http://www.openoffice.org/contact.html

Cheers

Hi bjm,

I meant the Secunia forum in French, just in case... As for the OOo program newly installed I will use it as it is in the meantime.

Thank you again,

Psy

Hi ddmarshall,

Si j'ai bien compris, en cas de panne de dictionnaire, je pourrais demander votre aide en français ?

Bravo et merci,

Psy

Si vous avez difficulté de vous faire comprendre en anglais, il y a quelques francophones dans le forum. Les résultats de Google Translate sont souvent bizarres.
