Hi Cassandra:

Please check my posting dated June 26, 2013 and titled "Can't locate
LibreOffice 4.04" for some comments, and other download links that may work
for you. If you could confirm that the error message you received is the
same as the one I describe, perhaps that might help someone resolve the
issue as none of the LO folks seemed to be able to duplicate the problem.

As far as I can tell, this problem has been around for quite a while (since
about the introduction of v4 which I think is the first time I encountered
it). I have been unable to load LibeOffice from any of the "official" sites
since then, either under Windows or Linux (as it happens, I just downloaded
a recent version for Windows this morning and still got the same error
message, so went to an alternative site).

If any other users have run into this, it might also help if you reported

Since the late 1970s, I've used probably every word processor known to man,
including the early stand-alone machines as well as several proprietary
ones, so I can state with some confidence that, although there are in fact
some bugs in LibreOffice, I find it much more useful and much less annoying
than products like Microsoft Word, so I would say it's worth whatever
hassles you need to go through to get it running. It's also able to read and
write Word documents (well, at least all but the most complex ones), so you
don't have to worry about compatibility issues with your co-workers.

Hope this helps ...
