Please explain how to repair.
If you run the installation file for an application again, in most
cases it will detect that the product is already installed and
offer to repair that installation: to reset the files as they would
have been after the original installation using the same options.
Well, the user told that he has downloaded the latest version of
OpenOffice and said it is just rubbish.
Repairing a version that is just installed doesn't take away his frustration
if your issue persists, you can uninstall and reinstall again.
How does that help?
Like repairing, reinstallation can correct problems if the
installed product files have been corrupted in some way.
Because he said that it changes completely his previous files it
sounds to me that he had a problem with file associations
and to my knowledge repairing or reinstalling OpenOffice doesn't
help there either.
As far as I'm aware the original poster didn't mention openGL.
All the more reason to make him or her aware of it, perhaps? (...
if it is relevant.)
I run Windows 10 but there is no option to activate previous
version in the Properties.
Oh, there is! It's on the Previous Versions tab - or can be
accessed directly via "Restore previous versions" in the context
menu. You will have enabled File History at Start | Settings |
Update & Security | Backup | Backup using File History, won't you?
So this is conditional and works only for Windows, unfortunately the
original poster (Oliver Lassalle) didn't mention any Operating System.
I wasn't answering the original enquirer: what made you think I was?
If I had been, I would have quoted his questions, but I quoted
nothing from his original message. As you can see from what I quoted,
I was commenting on your critique of a previous reply. You asked for
an explanation of repairing; you asked how repairing or
reinstallation could help; you asked about restoring previous
versions of files in *your* Windows 10. I answered those questions.
