The portable apps platform wishes to download a new version 3.4.4 of LibreOffice, but every time I allow it to continue it fails with
Download Error. Reget Error on file
Outdated download link removed
I'm on Windows 7 Professional, fully patched and run portable apps on a Sandisk Cruzer micro 16Gb. Language is British English
Any ideas what's wrong?
Should have mentioned I'm on "Next" Pre-release 4.2
I guess you downloaded this using the built-in updater, right?
Try downloading it manually from here until the link is fixed in the updater database by John T. Haller.
EDIT: And you can edit the main post if you want to add anything

I eventually came to that conclusion myself and did install it manually this morning
I've tried both offered packages on LibreOffice.org, PortableApps.com,and the installer (ver. 10) and all I get are errors. The downloads start out about 9 mins/117 megs and end @ 19.9 megs for all sources.
Installer integrity check has failed. Common causes include
incomplete download and damaged media. Contact the installer's author to obtain a new copy.
It seems like the web browser knows the correct size but a third program on a timer is closing the tap prematurely.
I don't like oracle or open office, so I hope this is resolved soon.
Is your download size limited (eventually by a corporate security solution)? If I got it right, your download via web browser didn't succeed as well.
Could you try it on a different machine?
Thanks for the reply,
I posted my problem on the LibreOffice mailing list and someone suggested I turn off real-time antivirus, and that worked. Apparently there's a pattern that trips Avast 6.0 at about 28.8 MB into the download and Avast doesn't bother throwing a flag or logging the event.
No problem with:
- this link: http://ftp.ciril.fr/pub/documentfoundation/libreoffice/portable/3.4.4/LibreOfficePortable_3.4.4_MultilingualNormal.paf.exe
- and a softawre with resume download (like Free Download Manager)
