everything worked fine before.
I downloaded dev version.
“check for updates” ( is very slow)
"there is an update"
Brave doesn’t restart after 5 minutes.
click on desktop link still won’t start.
uninstall from win7 ultimate.
install not-dev version.
same thing Brave never restarts after update.
reboot computer Brave won’t start.
the download works OK update not.
revert to downloaded version,
Update Channel dev
OS Platform Microsoft Windows
OS Release 6.1.7601
OS Architecture x64
 the dev version and the non-dev version installers seem to be exactly the same size on my disk
118,792,192 bytes, downloaded from different links on download page.
changed update channel not-dev "there are no updates"
windows seems to have generated an error log I didn’t see if anybody wants it
