    Open Office Download Failed


    Download of Open Office 4.0.0 from SourceForge failed on Win 8 ASUS laptop.
    Error Message:

    C:\Users\Susan\Downloads\Apache_OpenOffice_4.0.0_Win_x86_install_en-US.exe.part
    could not be saved, because the source file could not be read.
    Try again later, or contact the server administrator.

    I did not have a problem with the same download on a Vista machine.
    I sent an email to SourceForge. No response yet

    Anyone have a solution?
    Thanks

    Hi Frank C,

    I just did a test download from their primary server and it worked just fine; however, you are most likely taking a different DNS route so try the download from one of the mirrors and I'll betcha that will work:

    Download Apache OpenOffice from SourceForge.net

    Abort/cancel the primary download prompt and click the mirror link to select an alternative download site. Also, I'm assuming you have adequate hard drive space.

    That message normally appears if you lose your connection to the site you are downloading from.

    There could be various possible reasons for this:
    • The site has gone offline for some reason
    • There has been a drop out along the route
    • Your router or NIC has glitched
    • An OS glitch
