Twitch Launcher Error
So I made it into the Alpha and I tried to download the Twitch Launcher and install it. However, after 3 attempts of trying, I encounter the same error each time. This is the error I am receiving.
"The Twitch Launcher (Beta) has encountered an error.
Please check the FAQ located here : link.twitch.tv/launcher-faq
Click 'ok' to exit installation."
Its usually cause its having a hard time install the Visual C++ Runtimes. Go to http://link.twitch.tv/launcher-faq and search the question concerning the C++, download them from the links. I had the same problem.
@Etyrnal Sorry to hear that you are having troubles downloading and installing the Twitch Launcher.
There are a few things you can do to fix this issue:
Reboot your computer.
Make sure you download the recent (rather large) Windows 10 update.
Reboot again to make sure updates finish installing.
Re-download the Twitch Launcher install file, the try installing.
Remove the currently installed version of Microsoft C++ 2015 and let the Twitch Launcher install it for you. (Thanks Warrior @nFxus for the tip!)
