LibreOffice not installing on windows 8.1

Hello ,
Os Windows 8.1 , 64 bit
I removed the old LibreOffice_6.0.6_Win_x64 from windows.
The latest version LibreOffice not installing on windows 8.1
I had disabled the Windows Defender app from settings.

Used MalwareBytes to check the Unwanted virus but the screen freezes in installation process for 30 minutes.
as shown in the following images.

In case of older LibreOffice_6.0.6_Win_x64 installs easily.
Please suggest some workaround.

Can u tell me how to Submit the Log file ?

The instructions how to submit the log are given in the FAQ:

put the resulting zipped log file to an online share, and ask a question at Ask LibreOffice, mentioning the URL of that log file

Hello Thank you for reply.
The reason to make the log file is after windows tool was

run there was no trace of LibreOffice in the list, in the registry no entry was made.

Here is the shareable link of log file.


In your log, the installation of KB2999226 using Windows Installed never ends. The “InstallMSU” action starts, and its last report is that it has successfully started “C:\Windows\system32\wusa.exe” (see ln 66380), which is not followed by any result returned from it.

Please look at your Windows Event log, to see if any Windows Update-related problem reported there.

The Event viewer was not working previously. I will start the services and try again.
Thank you for reply.
