LO install demands Chrome, Slack closure

I just upgraded my Win7 laptop at work from LO 5.3.3 to 5.3.4, and it
insisted I close my Chrome and Slack apps.

Why is LO messing with Chrome and Slack settings?

Thanks.
MR

Where did you download from?  I have never seen that.  Download only
from www.libreoffice.org.

You are saying the you have a Windows 7 laptop and upgraded LibreOffice
to a newer one. You use the Chrome browser and whatever "Slack" is , and
LO is messing up your settings?

Did the install of LO show a "files in use" error?

I just installed new version of both and LO install process showed
Firefox needed to be closed before Windows_x64 version of LibreOffice
5.3.4.2 can be installed.

I do not have any Win7 systems left, so all I could do was to open a
different laptop [typing this on a Linux laptop] and see what error or
messages come up.

The "Firefox needed to be closed before LO is installed" message is the
only one I saw.  Both Chrome and LibreOffice worked like it should be.  
I did not have Chrome Browser active while when I installed LibreOffice,
but I think that close package message might have come up while I
installed LO.

Windows installer asking you to close some applications does not mean that
LibreOffice is messing with any settings whatsoever. It can trigger for a
variety of reason, the most common being that a shared library updated by
this install process is currently loaded by a running program. Windows
Installer detect this, and ask the user to either close the offending
process or keep going as-is and update the files after a reboot.‚Äč

Assuming you got a legit installer from the official website (to rule out
some shady providers) I don't know exactly what triggers this behavior in
your case. But it can be as simple as chrome having the Windows Explorer
DLL loaded and the LibreOffice installer updating its Explorer plugin.
