Google's StarOffice 8 - where is it?

Post by ontheteam » Sun Jul 06, 2008 12:54 am

I've been using the Google Updater to download the latest version of the StarOffice 8 installer. (It downloads the installer into a temp/cache folder in APPDATA. From there I just copy it to a new location and I have the latest installer available to load whenever and wherever.)

The GoogleUpdater doesn't track the version info for StarOffice (it does for the other items it provides, tho).

Is there a way to find where the file is actually being downloaded from? How would I determine what protocol the GoogleUpdater is using for the transfer?

I would like to be able to poll it with wget to see when a new version is available.

Any ideas?

Do you want StarOffice or OpenOffice?

StarOffice... it currently has more MS Office compatibility than OO.
