    Install Libre Office 4 on Windows 8


    Windows 8 will not allow me to install Libre Office 4. It produces the following error when I try to do so:

    The installation package could not be opened. Contact the application vendor to verify that this is a valid windows installer package.

    I have never had a problem with Libre Office before. I'm not sure how to proceed here...
    Thanks for your help!

    I've installed Libre on several Windows 8 instances. (Thoroughly testing it here for possible deployment) I've never had an issue with it.
    Just a thought; Did you get the installer directly from Libre or from a third party ??

    Just installed on Windows 8.1 without a hitch.

    One thing though; I am using msiexec to install since it's an MSI file. (msiexec /i %filename%.msi)

    Try that and see if it helps.
