I been using computers since 1970s. I been installing software since then too, obviously. I been on the internet since 1987. And I have some computer programming knowledge in C, and a lot in Dbase IV (having written a 50,000 line program in that language). I also have asperger’s type autism, and people with aspergers tend to be good with logic and computer programming. So I know enough about computers to know when something is frankly not working the way it should ever work, or programmed in a way it should never be programmed.
Trying to install LibreOffice: First off, I started out with an error saying I did’nt have enough disk space, which I figured out had to do with the temp directory. Then after trying to fix that, I get error code 2203. My operating system is Windows 64 Professional. Then after reinstalling an earlier version of my operating system’s registry settings via a registry tool from over a month ago, now I am getting an error about having to install a PREVIOUS version of LibreOffice CD ROM disk (I believe it was 220.127.116.11), in order to install the CURRENT version. The only period of time while using computers that I had this much trouble trying to install a program was back in the 1980s on DOS. The insanity of the programming for the current LibreOffice and apparently many years previously is beyond belief.
I am not trying to insult anyone. Autistic people’s brains tend to be wired to spit out the truth, unlike a normal persons. The reason I wrote this post is because I think the concept of a program like this is a good one, but the installation problems are pretty serious and should be addressed.
Update: I edited the above to correct what I meant about restoring to earlier version.
