LibreOffice portable will only run on a Windows based system with an x86 (or x64) architecture processor. According to the Huawei site ( ) the Mediapad 7 is a Cortex A-8 tablet (i.e. ARM architecture processor) running the Android OS.

Therefore it is not possible to run LibreOffice portable on your tablet.

EDIT: Here is a possible solution

Uh! I didn't know about the processor of that device till now.

Just another remark concerning devices running under some linux on a supported processor: My experiments showed running the PortableApps Platform and most of the portable versions of software I tested (including LibreOffice 3 at that time) very well under Wine.

Most likely this should indicate that you have downloaded an installer not recognised by the OS of your device.

As far as I know there is not yet a stable LibreOffice for Android which should be the OS of the MediaPad. (More details from this source!). You alo may stimulate Huawei to make an unselfish donation.
