On Windows 8 ... installation stops with a message that some files cannot be updated as they are open (? not sure of the exact message). Avira (ant-virus) is said to be holding(?) the files.
I stopped real-time protection with Avira and retried ... no better.
Selecting "ignore" allowed installation to continue - and seems to be OK - but how do I know?
Anti-virus software in general should be switched into install mode while installing, therefore I will mark it as RESOLVED NOTABUG.
Do not hesitate to reopen in case of mistriage.
I've just run into the same problem.
Trying to install LibreOffice 22.214.171.124
on Windows 7
Running Avira Antivir
The only option Avira has is to pause the real-time protection, but that did not help. I could not find a "switch to installation mode" function anywhere. I do not even have permissions to kill the avira process, although I'm a local admin and this machine is not part of a domain.
This is not Antivir blocking the installation, but Antivir using a file (probably a dll) that the installer wants to replace. Opposed to Linux based systems, using Windows it is not possible to replace a file while it is opened by an application. It would help to know the file in question and send a report to Avira.

ProcessExplorer DLL dump for Avira avguard
Shows dlls used by an Avira AV process which LibreOffice install claims is responsible for preventing installation. Sorted on vendor name.
Sorry, thought I was attaching to a comment, which was...
I've just rebuilt a W7 64bit system from the ground up, and Avira went in early, followed by another 39 packages, including MS Office. There was only any complaint when I came to LibreOffice. Yes, I know there's no general problem with W7 64bit as I have LibreOffice on other systems, but still it's strange that there should be a problem here. Why should LibreOffice be seeking to replace a Microsoft DLL in System32 or SysWOW64 on a fully patched system ? Avira seems to be trying to play nice - all it's non Microsoft dlls are local.
Closing this again - we have a whole list of reports about different anti-virus programs - report your issues with those software providers. We can't do anything about their false positives. Please don't open this bug again. Thank you.
