I didn't catch all of the recent posts about trouble downloading the
LO installer (and the thread apparently got highjacked to another
topic), but I posted something similar a month or so ago. I had
repeatedly tried downloading the Windows installer and constantly got
corrupted installer files. I am on high speed broadband and never
had issues downloading other installers, including the OSX LO
installer. I had also tried downloading the windows installer at a
local charity at which I volunteer, which has very slow internet. That
was spectacularly unsuccessful also.
I finally was able to download at home using a torrent file. It
seems to me that there has to be something funky about the LO windows
installers that make downloading so difficult. I imagine casual
users of LO aren't going to try to download the darn file repeatedly
in order to get a good download.
Try downloading it from here.
This is more of an FTP-based download than the other ways are. See if
it works better from here.
