Welcome to the AutoIt forums.

At a guess you have named the compiled executable as "Apache_OpenOffice_4.1.0_Win_x86_install_ru.exe", so that it keeps spawning itself - that is the usual reason you see multiple instances of the same process. Try renaming the script you compile and see if that solves the problem.

I have figured out the reason of what causes such behavior - WinWaitActive("",""). I have changed that to WinWaitActive("Preparing to install OpenOffice 4.1.0","&Next") and it's done. I just thought, that's AutoIt don't understand russian language.
