Trying to download for Windows 10 64 bit - and it gives me a .man file, not the expected .msi file.  Ditto for the Help file

Can you give details about the steps you were following during download?

Okay, so I read a bit more, and the mime type of the file should be changed at the particular download mirror.
Do you have the exact download link?
Comment 5 Aron Budea 2016-10-25 23:24:08 UTC
Unfortunately those are the generic download links, can you paste the ones for the downloaded files?

For example in IE11, they're available at Tools -> View Downloads, then right click on the file name and select "Copy download link".

Using Windows 10, & finding it difficult, not helped by the internet in the Philippines dropping out frequently.  Have found what I hope you are looking for, but don't get the option to copy it:

LO_5.2.2._Win_x86.man   mirror.rise.ph

LO_5.2.2_Win_x64.man   mirror.rise.ph

Had to wind up an old machine, as we're on Windows Edge 25.10586.0.0 and I can't find our how to see the download string.  In IE11 I had to re-do the downloads, and have come up with 



HOWEVER, even though the strings say they are .msi files, they have actually downloaded as .man files again
Comment 8 Aron Budea 2016-10-26 03:28:00 UTC
Great, thanks!

I can confirm that the links download as .man files in IE. While issues with the website should be raised at http://redmine.documentfoundation.org/ , let's take care of this one here.

Xisco, can you see to it that the owner of this mirror adds the respective mime type for msi files? (AddType application/octet-stream .msi, as Andras suggested in https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=53241#c5 )
