I'm trying to install the version 4.4.4 and when I try to install it, the setup ask me this file "LibreOffice_4.4.2_Win_x86.msi" It happens the same when I try to uninstall it.

Update 20/07 Still can't have the problem solved with these solutions. Can someone send me the file that setup LO ask me?

Did you attempt a previous installation of 4.4.2?

Yes, that's the version that I'm using right now and the setup worked without a problem

Install searches for the installation programm of the previously installed version to uninstall it. If you no longer, you can re-download it here.

You could be downloading the wrong file. If I can get it, I'll get it. Are you on Windows? Wait, I am downloading it right now and try to work out what's wrong.

Ah, I had a pretty smooth install, but I had some greying out...if you could trust me, i can take a system image of your computer and put it on a virtual machine, I might be able to give a useful explenation. But I cant promise. If you do trust me, find out how to do it here:

I suspect that you may be suffering from the omni-potent Corrupt Profile issue (loud "ta-da-DA!" music in the background, and frightened looks on every face). Fortunately it is easy to fix, but you will lose any prior customisation.

Re-Setting the User Profile:

  1. Close down LO/OO + the Quickstarter
  2. Go to your profile
  3. Rename it

Start again with the new install.

If this helps then please tick the answer (✔).

I guess I should be using AskUbuntu and the Ubuntu forums more than this....
