I have had Open Office for some time. I saw a prompt for an update of same. So, I began the update of Open Office. When it was finished, I went back into Open Office and I was informed that the file did not exist. Does anyone have any idea what I was doing wrong?

I, then, tried to install it from the beginning, and afterwards tried to go into it again, and got the same response -- that the program didn't exist.

Does anyone have any ideas as to why the update erased my programs for Office Org? If I had known that it was going to do that I wouldn't have updated.

Thanks.

How? What did you do exactly? Which operating system are you using?

Chances are, the update installed in a different folder, so your old shortcuts don't work. I see that happen a lot. You just need to create new shortcuts.

I think Corfy is right, the program was installed in a different folder, try to find this folder and then create shortcuts.

If you had made shortcuts on your desktop, there are deprecated, you have to recreate them again from the new ones in the Start menu.

It isn't just shortcuts on the desktop. WinXP also keeps a list of your most used programs in the Start menu. Those shortcuts can be depreciated as well.

Never seen that. The Start menu shortcuts have always been updated (with XP, W2k) for me.

The shortcuts under the "All Programs" do update, but the most-used shortcuts don't always.
