I downloaded them again and they installed fine.

I don't know if it makes a difference but I had not run either app before I
tried to update the PBIs so if the installer is looking for a dot file in
the user's home directory, none existed on my machine.

I believe I saw something come through the svn where you fixed it so that
two PBIs couldn't (or maybe it was could) be installed at the same time. I
tried opening the OO PBI while Opera was installing but it would never open.
Even after Opera was installed and finished I still couldn't open the OO PBI
until I rebooted.

Good work Kris...

Looks like bsdstats may have reached critical mass
