i have been advised to re-install the programme (open office) because of a config error,
the installation proceeds smoothely until the last stage which warns me that it will take some time to complete but in fact is still running at least for 30 mins. & ihave to terminate the install.
i'm running win xp any help will be appreciated thanks

Welcome, you're lucky I found this thread. It's in the wrong forum. Smile What version of OOo are you trying to install? I have heard from people who have trouble installing 3.2.X on Win XP.

You can also try this forum.

The configuration error error sometimes occurs because the latest MS Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable isn't properly installed. The version included with OOo is an old version. Try installing this security update before installing OOo:

Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Service Pack 1 Redistributable Package ATL Security Update
