Brave installer doesn't work on my computer


#1

Hello everyone,

I have downloaded brave installer a number of times on my windows 10 laptop. Every time I try to run it, I get a prompt saying “Brave Installation has failed” and then directing me to open the setup log. Has anybody has this issue before?

Thank you for any help in advance!

HI @Oudeis

Where are you downloading Brave from? Also, does the setup log contain information?

Thanks,
Lauren

Hello there @LaurenWags ,

Sorry for taking a bit, last two days have been a bit busy. I’m downloading brave from the official brave website. As for the setup log, prepare for a wall of text (I have taken the liberty of replacing my actual user name with FirstName LastName for privacy). Thanks for your help and consideration!

Hi @Oudeis

Could you try the following steps for me?

  1. Go to “%userprofile%\AppData\Local” and rename the “brave” folder to be something else (Start > Run > paste path)
  2. Go to “%userprofile%\AppData\Roaming” and rename the “brave” folder to be something else (Start > Run > paste path)
  3. Use Add/Remove Programs to uninstall Brave (Start > Run > appwiz.cpl)
  4. Delete all copies of installers (probably in your Downloads folder unless you save them elsewhere)
  5. Delete shortcut from desktop + taskbar
  6. Restart computer
  7. Re-download the latest Brave installer from https://brave.com/download/ (choose the Windows version that is applicable to you, ie 32 or 64.
  8. Run the installer
  9. App should open up at the end. Close it
  10. Launch from desktop shortcut

Thanks,
Lauren
