Some users have been reporting problems and difficulties with opening certain Apache OpenOffice documents in Windows 8.1; read to find more about this problem
apache open office windows 8.1
OpenOffice doesn’t have (yet) an application for Windows 8, so we are using it just like we did in previous Windows versions. What’s even worse is that now, after making the upgrade to Windows 8.1, some users have been reporting several issues while trying to open documents in Apache OpenOffice, the open-source office productivity software suite.

One user has shared this on Apache OpenOffice’s support forums yesterday:

When I downloaded Open Office 3.4.1 in my Asus Windows 8.1 laptop I cannot open any Document in Microsoft Windows.
I get this: “This app can’t run on your PC.”

And he also completes by saying:

The 4.0.1 version didn’t entirely unpack apparently because somewhat through its installation I got the message that it is on a network resource that is unavailable on my Windows 8.1

It seems that the user doesn’t event manage to complete the install in Windows 8.1, so that might be caused by some sort of software incompatibility. From what I’ve managed to find, it seems that reverting and download Apache Open Office 3.4.1 version should do the trick. Follow the link from below to download it securely from OpenOffice’s website.

If the issue persist and you can’t open Apache OpenOffice in Windows 8.1 or you can’t open documents, then, as always, let us know in the comments what your issue is and what errors are you getting and we will try to work together on a solution.
