Open Source Office Suite – Apache OpenOffice 4.1.5 Win 10 Install

Open source office suite Apache OpenOffice 4.1.5 has been released. I have used OpenOffice back in the day before I switched to LibreOffice. However, I still recommend and think this free open source office suite is productive.

Apache OpenOffice 4.1.5 is a maintenance release which rectifies 3 bug fixes. Also, english dictionaries have been updated.

* diagrams in calculator document corrupted when saved
* fixes previous bug fix 127568 that caused another bug
* copying all content causes writer crash

Open source office suite Apache OpenOffice is compatible with Microsoft Windows, Macintosh OS X, as well as Linux x86 32 bit and x64 bit operating systems. There are two known issues in this Apache OpenOffice version 4.5.1. Macintosh operating systems built in malware detection system Gatekeeper will flag this software.

Also, on Microsoft Windows operating systems with x64 bit architecture you will receive a warning that Java 8 is defective. You can download and install Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 redistributable package to fix that warning. You can always download the most recent version of open source office suite Apache OpenOffice from this static link.

The full version of Apache OpenOffice 4.5.1 install for Microsoft Windows is 134 megabytes in size. I do not think that Apache OpenOffice has an automatic updater. You have to download and install Apache OpenOffice as if it is a new install.

The old version will be removed. However, you may lose your configurations.
