I've been running LO for some time and really like it but am having trouble using Help. When I select it I get a webpage which is not easy to use. I have tried installing the Helppack but can not get it to work. Can someone please tell me in easy steps how to install the Helppack. I'm using Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit with SP!, Libre Office Version: 5.3.3.2 (x64) and the Helppack file I've downloaded is Libre Office 5.3.3 Win x64 helppack en-US.msi. Any help and/or advice will be appreciated as LO is the best and most useful office suite I can find. Thank you.

Then you have to download and install the respective help pack for English(GB). Note that it is English(GB), not English(UK). If not offered by default from the download page, click on need another language.
