Help me!

I have tried to install Salt 4.0 (an extension of Valencian language) and it cannot install on LibreOffice 4, but yes on LibreOffice 3.6. Can you help me?

My LibreOffice 4 is on Windows XP.

For the information of others, Salt v4.0 is available from here for Windows/Ubuntu/Debian/Mac. It is a large extension (~62MB for the Ubuntu/Debian zip, ~77MB for Windows zip). It appears to install a server and database of grammatical features. According to the change log in the Ubuntu/Debian version the last update was October 2011, although the contents of the zip file indicate it was packaged March 2012.

From the names of the Windows download files (LibreOffice_3_5_4 and LibreOffice_3_6) this question likely relates to an incompatibility with the LO v4.0.x series i.e., the extension maintainer has probably not yet updated their tool to use v4.0. A brief look in the Ubuntu/Debian package salt-ooo-addons_4.2.3_i386.deb shows control file (prerm and postinst) references to /usr/lib/openoffice/program/unopkg which I imagine would cause problems under Linux/LO.

There is a bug (FDO#33721) that relates to an old Windows python library conflict, but as indicated in the comments the linked OO Forum info dates from 2008 and probably does not apply any longer.
