James,

IIRC, AOO once did pop up a message about donating to the cause before downloading. It could be ignored or bypassed, but it could be confusing for some users. I now see that that message, since going to Sourceforge, is no longer there. That could be what the OP is talking about.

As I mentioned, just go to www.openoffice.org and download for free.  I
have no idea where that fee suggestion came from, as I've never seen it.

the free open office was available for many years
about a year ago the free version renewal suggested a fee (i'd have to look
at what it was, something like $25)
and over the years the program did change (as everything else does).
when my computer was repaired they not provide all of the programs i had on
it - adobe reader and open office
being two that i use a lot.
and since the last time i updated open office there was a fee, i do not
want to pay another fee to reinstall it.
every improvement of the computer takes me further out of the picture.  i
guess i am a true luddite and do not
find any robotic improvements to be beneficial to humans.

SO HERE'S THE QUESTION
i just want to reinstall open office
where do i go
what do i do
i am a hater of apps, twitter and all of that
i am also 80

thanks

You don't have to pay for OpenOffice.  It's a free download from
www.openoffice.org.  I don't know who you paid for OpenOffice, but there
are many who charge for what is a free download.  Some load it with
"crapware" or claim this user mail list is "support".  It's not.  We're
users, just like you.  However, we do try to help others.

When my computer was repaired a new drive was installed

Not only did I lose my old gmail account

I also lost my PAID FOR open office program

All I want to do is reinstall it so I can get back to work

This is getting stupid
