Github Desktop Installation Error

Evening guys :D,

I’m new to github and tried to install Github Desktop’s latest version on my 64bit Win 10. I keep getting this error though, along with this log. Does anybody know what I should do? :´(

Hey @otenporto , Welcome to the community forum!

The folks who make GitHub Desktop seem to be very responsive here: https://github.com/desktop/desktop/issues

I suggest opening an issue there.

Could you link your conversation with GitHub support if it helped you?
