when i try to download the Open Office Portable Edition, the software will download but when i go to install it i get some error. Something like NTIS Failure. The error says it may be because the download is damaged. As i am sure you all can tell i am not very advanced with this stuff. okay that was an understatement. can anyone help me?
The installer you downloaded is either corrupt or incomplete. This usually means one of the following:
- the download didn't finish and your net connection dropped
- your computer has a virus and it tried to infect the installer after download (the installer checks for this and will break... you should check your PC for viruses)
- the location you saved the installer to has logical errors on it and corrupted the file as it was saved (you should check your drive for errors)
Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!
I'm having trouble downloading a working copy, too--it looks like the config files are messed up (e.g., the menus are scrambled, missing labels, etc.). I've checked the MD5 checksums--they match. And, I just scanned my system for virus/malware--clean as a whistle. Any other ideas appreciated.
