I am brand new to LibreOffice and am trying to install it for the first time. In Chrome, Firefox, and Explorer I am taken to a new page whenever the download is supposed to start and I am given the following error message:


You don't have permission to access /tdf/libreoffice/stable/4.0.3/win/x86/LibreOffice_4.0.3_Win_x86.msi on this server.

I don't know how to go about downloading and any help would be greatly appreciated! I have Windows 7, and I'm trying to download the most recent English version if that helps.

Hi @apd,

I'm getting the same error when I try to download the Windows version of LO 4.0.3:

From this url:

And this mirror:

Let me see if it's just that mirror, or something bigger...

Update: Sounds like the mirror is currently having technical difficulties, please try this mirror instead:

The problem has been resolved: "The Clarkson mirror is back online."
