I have noticed that The Document Foundation has released the version of LibreOffice 4.1.4. It successfully downloads! Before, I was having trouble just downloading it (as seen here:
I installed it on my flash drive, and everything worked fine.
Then, upon opening the LibreOfficePortable.exe file, I got an error: "LibreOffice Portable ( Launcher) has stopped working." I am using a Windows Vista x64-based system. I prefer to use the Mozilla Firefox web browser. However, after opening soffice.exe in %LibreOfficePortableDirectory%\App\libreoffice\program\soffice.exe, the program functioned perfectly At first, I thought maybe something happened when I checked the "Remove extra languages" box in the installer. But, after reinstalling it without that box checked, the problem persisted. After rebooting the system (I don't know if that changed anything), I opened the same download and installed LibreOffice Portable to a different folder. It successfully installed, and I didn't get any "stopped working" errors. I went back to the folder I previously installed the software under and the "stopped working" error persisted. The filesystem permissions for the two folders were the exact same, so I don't understand what happened.

I could still see the contents of the .paf.exe file when I opened it in 7-Zip. $RO, $_OUTDIR, and other common directories in a installer, along with the files, were present. Yet, according to the NSISError thrown, "common causes include incomplete download or damaged media." Is there any explanation for this? The WinPenPack X-LibreOffice worked fine for me ( However, at the time of this writing, the LibreOffice Portable page on only links to the package, and does not mention the WinPenPack version. I am confused, since the "Author Link" on the WinPenPack page goes to, instead of some other third-party. Is X-LibreOffice made/supported by The Document Foundation? If so, why doesn't mention the WinPenPack version? Other people in this mailing list have recommended the WinPenPack version over the version, and even asked the same question ( and

Thank you.
