Subject: Installation failure of LibreOffice 6.0.5
64 bit W7, Firefox 52.9
I fetched LibreOffice_6.0.5_x64.msi from www.libreoffice.org/download/
I removed the old version prior to installing a 6.0.5. The installer
started, offered the usual questions, then failed before the progress
bar had moved at all. No UAC dialog offered. I fetched a second copy
which failed in the same way.
Next different mirror:
(us, prio 100)
This was substantially slower (15 min.) than the utexas mirror (5 min.)
This file is only 246 MB compared to the utexas copy 262 MB.
This copy also fails, same mode.
'Net search results suggest the .msi file must be run as administrator.
I have administrator priv, but the UAC dialog isn't offered when I
attempt to run, as it does with every other .exe or .msi file I have tried.
Shift - right click offers option of "run as another user" which
requires an id and password, but neither the administrator nor my
account have password(s) set. The dialog refuses to accept administrator
as the user and a blank password isn't allowed.
But for the fact that a UAC dialog isn't offered when I attempt to run
the installer, I'd say this is a Windows problem.
In any event, you all know more about LO & Windows than I (at 81) am
likely to learn in my time left on this Earth.
Meanwhile, I'll reinstall the old version.
Please copy me with your responses.
