You shouldn't restart the O.S. while updating/installing an extension. After installing the extension with the Extension Manager, you should restart Wealth-Lab (only) and then acknowledge the "successfully installed" dialog. Please try that.

I don't restart the OS , i restart only wl not OS , when i restart appear the user dialog box that request me the password on windows 8

Okay, it just confused me when you said, "but when i restar the operating system" :)

Nonetheless, I couldn't duplicate the error by restarting the O.S. in the middle of installing an extension.

* Make sure that your Windows account has Administrative privileges in order to install extensions. *

Yes i yet doing that check and i upgrade the user to administrator privilege ... so now i can try to recreate a new user with administrator privilege at the begin ... the main problem is that with standard user with admin privilege the wlab don't start :(
Instead with a new user start but have that problem on extension ....

Ciao Roberto,

Here's what you need to try when WL is giving you an IPC error:

Errors installing/updating Extensions > Failed to connect to an IPC Port: access denied

the main problem is that with standard user with admin privilege the wlab don't start :(

If Wealth-Lab crashes on start as you say, follow this General troubleshooting procedure:
