I had the same problem. Once you have a friendly soul tell you, it's fine.
But until then, nothing seems to work right.  I'm using Win7/XP.

Thanks Dries, Tom and Marc

You were all right in what you said.......

 * I WAS looking for the Windows version for a friend (I'm using Linux)

 * I WAS fooled by the "Button that is not a Button"!! IMHO this is a
   very bad way of doing things. In computer UIs these days something
   that looks like a Button is accepted as such and you just click on it!!
   I would recommend a change here ASAP!!

Regarding looking in my PCLinux Repos for the latest version of LO - I'm
afraid they are very slow to put these up which forces you to run a version
or two behind. I have however found a couple of times that the 'normal'
.rpm files DO work OK so thought I should try this again. Will give it a go
later in the week.

I managed to download a .msi file yesterday for LO for Windows which, it
says, is the new replacement for .exe .....
Ummm - we will see I guess.

Anyway guys thanks for the help.
