Can anyone enlighten me where/how I can activate the below please.

Command line switches?

Registration of OpenOffice.org as default application for Microsoft Office formats can be forced or suppressed by using the following command line switches with the installer:
/msoreg=1 will force registration of OpenOffice.org as default application for Microsoft Office formats.
/msoreg=0 will suppress registration of OpenOffice.org as default application for Microsoft Office formats.

That's worrying. Have I done the right thing downloading?

No reply probably means that no one can help. The people here are users, like yourself, that try to help other users.

Where did you get the information you posted?

Why are you wanting to use the command line?

You also provide no information on the operating system.

It was on one of the many pages I saw when downloading the suite. It appears to show that registration of OpenOffice.org as the default application for Microsoft Office formats can be forced and that'd be handy.

I use Windows XP Pro if that makes any difference.

Thank you so very much. Sorry to appear to be (actually, just to be) such a simpleton.
