Update unsuccessful

I attempted to download the latest update and now I am unable to open Papyrus on my pc. It gives an error that the side by side configuration is incorrect and to use the command line or event logs.

I attempted to download again and it says the installer integrity has failed and mentions corruption of media file.

Can you advise? I can no longer open any of my Papyrus files on my pc either.

Thanks in advance.

Update was unsuccessful. It says this app is not supported by Microsoft?? True

That’s very unusual. :male_detective: :mag:
