LibreOffice 5.4.1 portable package on Win-7 x64: install fail repeatedly

(Previous LO version had been installed badly ... on USB-stick; and was not used so far.)
Newly announced LO 5.4.1 portable on PortableApps noticed this when update process was started and recommended new full download of LibreOfficePortable_5.4.1_MultilingualStandard.paf.exe.
This was done twice with the same failure when installing.
A second download of the package (identical file) also ended with the same failure, i.e.
aborting the installation with: Could not save the file "Radial05-Sphere-Blue.svg".
Stick-medium should be ok. ...
So the package seems to be corrupt!

Not The Package, It's The Drive

When you encounter issues like "Could not save" in an NSIS installer it means either (1) the drive is out of space, (2) there is a permissions issue preventing a file/directory from being written, (3) the file is in use by something else and locked by the OS, or (4) there corruption on the drive. If it's not 1 it's usually 4. The release has no corruption issues. If you somehow download only part of the installer or corrupt it locally, it will refuse to run at all with a CRC error. The very first thing the installer does when you run it is check its own integrity.

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

working again... thanks

Sorry for being late (must have expected an e-mail signal for a reaction, or so :-) )
So, thanks for your quick answer - just were looking about that and a new version already was announced... This is just working again.
