I just had problems downloading the latest version of LiberOffice to a Windows 7 machine and 
donating to The Document Foundation.  

DOWNLOAD PROBLEMS:  I was unable to get a download to work using Internet Explorer 11.0.  I went to and clicked on “Download Now”, then “Download version 4.3.5”.  Nothing happened.  I 
somehow found links to allow me to download “LibreOffice_4.3.5_Win_x86.msi.meta4”.  However, my 
installation of Windows 7 did not know what to do with meta4.  I also found other mirrors, but I 
couldn’t get them to work, either.  I was able to install SeaMonkey and download LO with that and 
install that version.  I’m running BitDefender antivirus, but I would have thought that if that 
were the problem, it might have blocked me on SeaMonkey as well.  ???

PROBLEMS DONATING:  I tried to “Donate via Credit Card”.  This seemed to do 2 things:  

          1.  It referred me to ConCardis, which said, “Sorry, no payment method is active. 1”  I 
could not get past that.  

          2.  Concurrently, I got a separate window, which I assume came from LO, for “AdStorm”.  

          *** Bottom line:  I got ads I did not want (and wasted my time) AND I was not able to 
donate with the time and energy I had for that.  (I’ve donated many times before without these 

          Anyway, LO is a great product.  I use it routinely.  I update often, and I usually donate 
when I update.  On this occasion, I was blocked for reasons I do not understand.  

NOTE:  I do NOT personally need a solution to this problem.  I’m reporting it in case others might 
have similar difficulties.
