Description of the issue:
Unable to install the latest production version of Brave browser (1.0.0) due to installer error:
Unable to connect to the Internet. If you use a firewall, please whitelist BraveUpdate.exe
How can this issue be reproduced?
- Download latest installer from https://brave.com/download
- Run installer
- Installer fails to connect to internet
Whitelisting the executable did not help. I also disabled Windows Firewall to see if that was an issue, still did not resolve.
Downloading Brave’s standalone installer from GitHub allowed me to install without issue. Hopefully this will help those just wanting to get Brave installed.
