What do I do with the "OpenOffice.org 2.0 Installation Files" on my desktop? What did you do with yours?

First I used them to install OOo 2.0.x. After that I deleted them all. I just kept the downloaded OOo file to reinstall OOo if needed.

With kind regards

Holsten:

And that doesn't cause any problems? I mean, that's the standard procedure that everyone is supposed to follow after doing an install? Is there a help file that describes this?

You will need them when you want to repair or remove your installation.
I always keep them until the next version comes out and, since I never install atop the former version I use these to uninstall. When the next version works all right I trash the former one's downloaded file and installation files. It is never good to keep much crap on the desktop, anyhow.

I've never needed the installation files to remove an OpenOffice.org installation. I simply call "Software" from my Windows "System settings" and select "Remove" besides OOo. No problem.

hol.sten,

I'm of the keep the files variety but I never let the installer unpack to the desktop which is just the default.

The question is can you do a Repair or Modify once you have deleted them? If the answer is "yes", then did you keep the original installation file?

I never needed to repair or modify my installation. So I never tried it.

As I already wrote in this thread: Yes, I'm keeping the downloaded OOo installation file. I guess that I have to unpack this file to do a repair or a modify.
