I am having the same exact issue, only I don’t know how to fix it.
It still will not work for me.
EDIT: After redownloading the installer and running the setup, Brave started to work for me again, so far all is good.
EDIT 2: I am not sure if there are just quick consecutive updates, or if the latest one simply isn’t ‘taking’, as it were. Whenever Brave does try to update, usually every time I close the browser, it breaks again and the only way to get the browser running again is to run the installer all over again.
EDIT 3: Also, for some reason, Brave won’t export my bookmarks, so I am worried about losing those if I have to reinstall or something like that.
EDIT 4: Reinstalled the browser, and it was working fine until the update notification popped up. So, once again, after the browser closes, it updates and then stops working for me. For now, I’ll just leave it uninstalled and save my data from the Roaming Appdata folder…
