Composer install fails at google/apiclient-services

Nearly every version since 5.8.21 is failing when running composer install specifically with google/apiclient-services.

I’ve ran composer clear-cache and increased the timeout limit with composer config process-timeout 1200

Is anyone else having the same issue?

What are the actual google services being utilized by invoice ninja? I thought about implementing this suggestion:

    "require": {
        "google/apiclient": "^2.12.1"
    "scripts": {
        "pre-autoload-dump": "Google\\Task\\Composer::cleanup"
    "extra": {
        "google/apiclient-services": [

Any help would be greatly appreciated… been pulling my hair out trying to resolve this.


This is the first report I’m aware of the problem. In the GitHub issue they suggest disabling “real-time protection” on Windows 10.

The hosted and selfhosted versions of the app share the same codebase. This package is used by the hosted version but probably not the selfhosted version.
