Hello, Something looks strange to me. The LibreOffice 6.3.1 Multilingual file size after downloading is 199 MB (properties). After extracting this file with "7Z" program, I get folder size 3.15 MB only. Where are the rest MB. What am I missing ? Answers will be appreciated. Thanks Motim

Which version of 7-zip do you use? Some older versions of it only displayed/extracted MSI tables, not files.

Generally, it's recommended to use msiexec -a LibreOffice_X.Y.Z_Win_xNN.msi to extract it properly.

EDIT: sorry, was biased, and @Opaque is perfectly right. Of course: which is the OS and the package?

Sorry - deleted my comment, since all of a sudden my original comment appears to be the comment of somebody not skilled enough to talk about the issue after I saw your comment (just added to make clear why you are referencing me).

This post doesn't answer your question and is disrespectfully, indirectly stating search on your own the file I've downloaded

Agree with @Opaque. Take into account that PortableApps is a separate project independent of LibreOffice; its installer is not something TDF/LibreOffice team creates. And "7-z" (is that 7-zip? or something different?) is yet another independent project. So your question boils down to this: "I try to extract a package made outside of this project with an application unrelated to this project, and don't get the expected result. Where's the problem?"

Having said that, I have tested the PortableApps packages from, and my 7-zip application v.19.00 (x64) shows them to have more than 1 GB inside.
