How do I get past the Installation has failed error for BraveSetup.exe?

This is usually caused by running the x64 installer on a 32-bit computer.

For a 64-bit installer on Windows, get it here:
https://laptop-updates.brave.com/latest/winx64

For a 32-bit installer on Windows, get it here:
https://laptop-updates.brave.com/latest/winia32

You can tell if that’s the problem by searching the log, which can be accessed from the Open Setup Log button for:

The specified executable is not a valid application for this OS platform

Another common reason for this error is if you already have an open Brave process.
