I can't "install" LibreOffice in any of the below directories:

C:\Program Files\PortableApps

C:\Program Files\PortableApps\LibreOfficePortable

I get the following pop-up box after clicking "Install": "The destination folder you selected is invalid. Please choose a valid folder. [C:\Program Files\ or sub-directories]".

The ".exe" file was initially saved into my "Downloads" folder and I copied it into the above folders for install. Other PortableApps are installed in the C:\Program Files\PortableApps folder as well as their own C:\Program Files\app-name folder.

Please advise

(1) There may be a problem if you copy the installation file to the destination folder. Delete it their and try to install from "Downloads".


(2) Hence C:\ usually is not portable, try to install the standard version and not the portable.
