The option to remove languages you aren't using during install has been temporarily removed from LibreOffice Portable builds. This is due to an issue in LibreOffice where it will get stuck showing a crash error on boot consistently if languages that were in the original install are removed. It seems to affect Windows Vista and 7 pretty consistently but did not trigger on all machines in our testing.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!
