Could you give a few more details?

What program are you using that works with OpenOffice3 but not 4? Mostly
just curious about this one. When we went to version 4, there were changes
to how extension must be constructed. Maybe the author of your program that
integrates with 3.x is not aware of this change.

This is what we have for uninstall instructions.

However, there are some forum posts which indicate if quick starter is
enabled, this could be causing odd "reinstall" behavior.

Hope this helps.
