Testing of an Apache OpenOffice 4.1.2-patch1 procedure is requested.

The files to be used in testing are at

The files to be tested and reviewed are

  * README-4.1.2-patch1-apply-Windows.txt
    The description of the procedure for applying a corrected
    library file to installed copies of Apache OpenOffice 4.1.2
    on Windows.  Read this first before deciding to download
    the Zip file and attempting the procedure.

wow, really? I think I need much more time for this than an average evening. ;-) I'll do the README steps on Sunday.

    The Zip archive containing the files to be used in the
    procedure.  There is a copy of the README within the
    archive as well.

- I've exchanged the DLL
- Created a new text and presentation document with simple content.
- Both were reopened successfully.

Anything more to test?


I don't know if this is OK or still bad:

gpg --verify gpg: Signature made Tue 02 Aug 2016 06:24:08 AM CEST using RSA key ID D456628A gpg: Good signature from " (confirmed identifier) <>"
gpg:                 aka "orcmid (Dennis E. Hamilton) <>"
gpg:                 aka "orcmid Apache (code signing) <>"
gpg: aka "Dennis E. Hamilton (orcmid) <>"
gpg: WARNING: This key is not certified with a trusted signature!
gpg: There is no indication that the signature belongs to the owner.


Windows 10 Home (Version 1511):
I've visually compared the MD5 hashes from the ZIP and MD5 file
--> OK

$ md5sum -c
--> OK


Windows 10 Home (Version 1511):
I've visually compared the SHA256 hashes from the ZIP and SHA256 file
--> OK

$ sha256sum -c
--> OK


  * [OPTIONAL] If you are able to check any of the .asc,
    .md5, and .sha256 files against the .zip, report any
    difficulties that may have been encountered.

Please remove the new line at the end of the MD5 file. Otherwise it doesn't work on Linux:

md5sum -c
: No such file or
: FAILED open or
md5sum: WARNING: 1 of 1 listed file could not be read

  * If you performed the procedure, report
     * the version of Microsoft Windows and the type of
       account used (administrator or standard user).

Windows 10 Home (Version 1511)

     * report whether the procedure succeeded


     * if the procedure failed or met with difficulties,
       please summarize the problems and how you over-
       came any of them

To do a quick check, I've used a shortcut:

I've used the Total Commander (started as administrator, a normal user cannot modify anything in the OpenOffice directory) and exchanged the DLL.

  * [IMPORTANT] Identify any missing, incomplete or
    confusing information in the README.  Describe what you
    see as important improvements before making general
    release of the procedure for use by non-expert users of
    Apache OpenOffice on Windows.
