    Hello

    I've just bought and paid for Open Office 365. I have an Acer PC (Windows 8). I tried downloading the package and it began but stuck at 51%

    I removed the Office already on my laptop, rebooted the computer and began again, after confirming the original office had been removed (it doesn't have microsoft word which is the reason I'm updating). And exactly the same thing happened.

    Any help or advice please

    What exactly are you trying to download and where are you getting it from?

    "Open Office" is a free alternative to Microsoft Office.

    Office 365 is the current Microsoft version.

    There isn't an "Open Office 365" that I'm aware of.

    Since you've marked this "solved" what turned out to be the solution?

    Not entirely sure. I put my computer on at home (after trying to download in the local library and failing), rebooted it again and all the things I didn't think I'd managed to download suddenly appeared in my taskbar. It told me I'd only downloaded 51% but they all just appeared.

    just an FYI, when I install Office365 the percentage doesn't seem to be in sync completely. I get a message saying Office is installed but the progress bar is still showing, so I think it was just needed a little patience to finish up.
