Can't install or update extensions in 7.4.2

If I try to install new or update an old extension, after a while I just see the following message: "an error occurred during file opening".

I would post some logs only if I knew where to find them.

Testing...

LO 7.4.x generated a lot of complaints nowadays. I'm (personally) encountering some weird issues while setting it up, even with a new installation…
The easiest way is to make tests within a fresh LibreOffice/platform.

PS. I've finally decided to reinstall mine from zero, while trying to find the mouse's rat's hiding place!

I already tested the latest

I already tested the latest versions to find a regression window. The installation works in the 7.3.6, but is broken with each version after this: 7.4.0, 7.4.1, 7.4.2. They are still downloadable. What else can I do to find the source of the bug?

Right now, I test a new version of extension by just extracting it from the file and overwrite the content of an old version somewhere deep in the usr folder of LO.

Fresh Installation

Tested once again with the 7.4.2 fresh installation. The option, you are mentioned, was already deactivated. But I still get the error and can't install or update my extension. Any other suggestions?

Too long paths.

I probably found out the reason for this bug. Just made a fresh installation in the root of the drive, not into the "PortableApps" folder. Then moved the "CommonFiles" folders, so I would have a Java instance. Then everything works fine: extension installation and update.

Adding extensions in LO 7.4..

Hi Anton.
When you state "made a fresh installation in the root of the drive, not into the "PortableApps" folder." are you talking about LibreOffice. the entire PortableApps folder or something else? It isn't clear to me. Ditto for moving "Common Files", are these just LO or something else?
Finally, I have programs called jPortable Launcher and JPortable Browser Switch included in my portable Apps folder. Are they not sufficient for a Java Instance?
Thanks.
Jojo
