Subject Fwd: Re: Open Office on my wife's Mac
Date Sun, 03 Mar 2013 18:26:13 GMT

The file that downloaded spawned a window with 3 folders and the
OpenOffice Icon.

The window shows and arrow from the Open Office Icon pointing to the
applications folder.

The other folders are readme and something else.

I dragged the Open Office Icon to my wife's applications folder and it
seemed to take a while copying it across with a progress bar.

I then double clicked the icon in the applications folder and a question
mark displayed on her tool bar at the bottom of the screen.

When you click this questionmark the Open Office Icon appeared in it's

When you click it again it seems to jump up and down the 1st time then
appears static but no windows open?

Warm Regards

Did you open the .dmg file you downloaded and then drag into the application 
folder or did you just drag the file you downloaded to the application
