*EASY FIX* Figma app Installation has failed (Windows)

Hey all,

I just found a fix for this issue 'installation has failed- there was an error while installing the application. Check the setup log for more information and contact the author."

I was struggling to fix this error for a while so I’m hoping this information is helpful to others who are struggling with this.

Here’s the scoop (this is only for windows users):

  • go to the run prompt. (Windows key + R)

  • Type %localappdata% and press OK

  • Find the Figma folder and delete it

  • Go to the run prompt. (Windows key + R)

  • Type %appdata% and press OK

  • Find the Figma folder and delete it

  • Empty your recycle bin and restart PC

  • Download the Figma desktop app and run as administrator.

Your done! This worked for me. Let me know if it works for you all.
