More or less [Reproducible] with Portable "LibreOffice 3.6.1.2  German UI/ German Locale [Build-ID:  e29a214] on German WIN7 Home Premium (64bit) 

There are major problems to install Portable in a very deep path structure with long name (I got an error message "Impossible to overwrite ......")
Example path:
<C:\Users\user\Portable_Suite\Portable_SuitePortableAppsLibreOfficePortable\Hereinstall>
but this might be something different

I installed in 
<C:\Users\user\LibOPortable361>, what is possible, but LibO crashes at any attempt to launch  it

Works from 
<C:\LibOPortable361\LibreOfficePortable\>

Working path name is longer, but contains less paths above portable.exe
What ever that might mean.

I did not compare to 3.5

I think currently we should wait fro progress with John T. Haller's attempts you can see on a.m. URL.
