has anyone gotten open office to work on windows 7? I tried to install it, but Win7 says that it is not a valid Win32 application. Any idea why?

I've been using OpenOffice on Windows 7 since I first installed build 7000 (now 7077) and have had no problems with it running whatsoever.

I only installed Writer, Calc and Impress - it could be any of the other applications which aren't compatible or throw up the installation error.
