Same symptoms here with Windows 7 on two different machines. Disabled the firewall but still having the same issue.
- I ran BraveBrowserDevSetup.exe,
- it says “on your marks…”
- The next screen appears stating “Connecting to the internet…”
- The next screen appears stating "Unable to connect to the internet. If you use a firewall, please whitelist BraveUpdate.exe.
- when checking task manger, it shows BraveUpdater.exe three times.
Original issue from @jek6094 quoted below:
I tried BraveBrowserDevSetup.exe, and it starts off with “On your marks…”, then it says “Connecting to the Internet…” and then it finally stops with an error message saying “Unable to connect to the Internet. If you use a firewall, please whitelist BraveUpdate.exe”… The process does create stuff under …/Program Files (x86)/BraveSoftware/Update, but when I close the dialog, it cleans up whetever it has created. I do not get a single warning from the Windows firewall that something is trying to access Internet though, so no idea what’s going on.
EDIT: Tried with Windows Firewall off and anti-virus disabled, but still no luck. (same error message) I wonder if it’s a Win7 issue? Maybe the same issue that prevents crash reports from being uploaded?
