freeoffice re-download without registering

Post by Spiros78 » Thu Feb 14, 2019 7:39 am

I've been using this wonderfull software for few years now, but i've been a bit lazy to register here and write my question about this. Now that i did, please tell me, why do i have to re-register every time i only want to download a recent version or just download it again? To me at least, this has no logic, as the download option option should not require registration, especially when i have already done it, and besides, these are two separate procedures, so why make it complex? :?: :?:

1. You can keep the same download and copy the installer to multiple computers.
2. When you install FreeOffice, it keeps itself up-to-date automatically. No need to download new revisions.

1. Yes i know that very well, but what if need to download a newer version because i want to do a clean install without updating or after OS re-installation?

2.I know how it can be updated auto but i do it on demand... and i go back to 1 !!

1.There is no need to register when you just want to download the SoftMaker Office setup file:
https://www.softmaker.com/en/downloads

Or are you talking about FreeOffice (www.freeoffice.com)? Here you have to register again in order to download the file again. But in that case this thread is in the wrong forum.

The title is clear enough that is about freeofice, isn't it? I had not see that the section about it is close to the bottom, so someone who has the means, could move it there, but whoever could, did not even read my messages before the first post approval to delete the 2nd i accidentaly made, would he move the topic to the correct place? I won't stay here torturing a topic, i came to drop an opinion, not to organize a forum.
