LibreOffice can't see Java RE due to deeper folder

After installing jPortable (both x86 and x64) I see (in Java or Java64 folder) a folder with name “jre1.8.0_361” and folder “bin“ inside. This way it couldn’t be seen by LibreOffice, so I have to move “bin” folder one level up. This behavior is present from the jre1.8.0_341 on.

Should Be Temporary

That folder is temporary and then files are moved around after Java is downloaded and extracted. I just tested both a new install and an upgrade and both work without issue here. Please include your complete details including your OS version, install path, antivirus and anything else that may be interfering with the install on your machine.

Win8 with AV software

Thank you for your answer. My installation details: It's Windows 8 64-bit, with the latest updates (really the latest, I know). I use ESET Nod32 AV on it. Installation path is E:\PortableApps\CommonFiles\ for both.

So you think, that the antivirus is a troublemaker here? And what is the solution? Try to make an exception for whole CommonFiles directory?

I have to test it on my Windows 10 box to see, if it happens there too, even with the same AV software.

8 or 8.1?

Are you using 8 or 8.1? We generally don't test under 8.0 as it's pretty buggy and was supplanted by the free 8.1 update which is equivalent to a Windows service pack on XP or 7. We don't support unservice-packed XP or 7 either.

Of course, it is 8.1; I just

Of course, it is 8.1; I just use the definition for so long, that I forgot about point release. And I know, that there was a really last update last month and even 8.1 is out of support. So, what else could be a cause of the troubles here?

Try Disabling your AV Temporarily

We could try to rule out your AV. First close all running apps to be safe. Download a fresh copy of the jPortable installer and install it temporarily just to your Desktop. See if the behavior above is observed. Now delete the copy on your Desktop and disable your AV. Now re-run the jPortable installer you already downloaded and install it temporarily to your Desktop directory again. Is the same issue above observed? Don't forget to turn your AV back on.

I tested once again, and on

I tested once again, and on the Windows 10 or 11 I can't reproduce it. I can sporadically reproduce it on the Windows 8.1, it happens in 1/3 of all cases. It isn't important, if AV is on, off, or I have an exception for whole CommonFiles folder. But: this time it's "lib" folder, which isn't transferred.
