In a previous post I showed the initial screen shots for setting up Open Office on Vista. In this post I would like to show the final finishing set up steps.
Open any of the Open Office applications. Here I decided to launch Writer and am greeted with the Welcome Wizard which will guide me through registration.
The next screen we get to review and accept the EULA. You will have to scroll down to the end of the EULA to be able to continue.
Now just enter your name …. I use my online alias … not that I am wearing a tinfoil hat, but I see no reason for any company to know my real info.
Now choose if you want to receive automatic updates or not.
Finally decide if you want to register with OpenOffice.org. I have registered and am happy I did as it makes me feel more a part of the Open Office Community. Of course the option is completely up to the user. Now click on Finish.
There we go! Now we are ready to start using Open Office!
