Very long paths are problem in some situations

The paths inside C:\LibreOfficePortable\App\DefaultData\settings\user\extensions\bundled\....... are too long causing problems even during copying!
I tried to embed LibreOffice in Win10PE but this problem avoids copying some files and fails
Is there a solution ?

Yes and No

You could run it once first and then delete the DefaultData directory, but that will only save you 11 characters. Keep in mind that these files will also be present within C:\LibreOfficePortable\Data\settings\user\extensions\bundled\... You could also rename LibreOfficePortable to LO or similar to save additional characters.

Is there some reason you're working with a shorter than normal max path size on this install? LibreOffice Portable runs just fine from root or from a C:\PortableApps directory on installed Windows. Does PE have to use shorter paths?

It's worth noting that we don't test or support PE builds, especially if you're planning on doing read-only. No apps are tested for read-only functionality any longer and haven't been for years now.

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

I already renamed LO and I

I already renamed LO and I overcome the problem.
I will ask the WinPE team to extend the length of the paths.
But this is not the major problem.
As I have just found, the program needs to create some folders and so it can not run from CD
The reason I want to build a live CD is that I want to avoid malware. I want to know that, even if my computer is broken by someone via the internet, it will not hurt my interface.
Probably, many want something similar for this. I think it would be good to go (maybe giving the ability to choose the drive of additional folders)
