If you have downloaded the file in the subject, of type .exe, it is intended 
for Windows and will not run on a Mac.  You should go to 
https://www.openoffice.org/download/
and select the Mac version from the dropdown. 

If the Mac complains: “OpenOffice” cannot be opened because the developer 
cannot be verified.

MacOS will not open OpenOffice.app"

I think the immediate answer is in Q05/A05 in the above [Tutorial] Mac FAQ

Doug,

What version of MacOS are you using?
Where in the process of updating are you having problems?
What, if any, error message are you getting?

The 'Win' in the file name indicates that you downloaded the Windows version 
instead of the Mac Version.

Subject: Apache_OpenOffice_4.1.15_Win_x86_install_en-US.exe

As requested by SourceForge email I downloaded and installed the subject 
version of Apache.  This was an update as I have been using Apache OpenOffice 
on my Mac Mini M-1 for some time with no trouble. All of a sudden I find that 
Apple will not run this version. I am in the middle of writing a book and this 
brought me to a screeching halt.  Why won’t this update run on Apple?
