You’ve got some weird folders there…


Try clearing those folders, verify your installation, attempt again.

I’ll try to do so right now.

I doubt it will fix anything with FiveM’s Installation however…

Didnt fix anything unfortunately.

I am having this same exact issue, none of these fixes have worked, and I have tried uninstalling/reinstalling several times.

This issue seems to be a common thing around, yet I do not see any progress made towards this issue to get it resolved.

I have, and I am certain that anyone with this same issue has searched for a solution and either they didnt work or they gave up.

If anyone has a solution by fixing this error than please do share it!

we need this information

I’m unable to get these fils and or information.

Wouldn’t know were to get them as well.

whats going to happen is you will install it in a another folder, then it will be a temporary fix because it will load but now you wont have a way to launch it after the first time. Im battling this issue right now. No idea why there isnt a uninstall feature

This isnt really fixing the issue and is a so to say and no offence, a ‘shit’ solution towards the problem.

On the other hand, I might have good news for all the members and users whom have this problem.
I will be testing stuff around and see if what I found is truely the solution to getting this problem fixed!

For anyone reading this and has this error:

#1 Do you have any sort of anti virus scanner or protection installed and running?

#2 If yes, did it ask for permission to allow FiveM to install?

I have tried giving permission and turning off the programs. nothing seemed to help

Does your Anti Virus Protection have a section were it puts files in as “Quaratine”

Try to search that up with your Anti Virus Protection and see if it contains FiveM files and even FivenM.exe.

Cause I had the same issue and I found these files and allowed them and FiveM has been working ever since. I might make a video to help future people understand.

This can also difference between what Anti Virus Protection you use.

no log of them. It went from this program launches a week ago to steam isnt connected… ok thats wrong it is… then went to win32 error. Then no uninstall feature for some stupid reason. so install in new folder. now no even launch and none have a exe to launch single player or multiplayer. legit now i have the program “gone” deleted" how ever you want to say it but my antivirus has a log of 6 fiveM exe that are ok and allowed. The dumbest thing is not allowing to uninstall something and yes i did %localapp%

What anti virus are you using?

Im using Comodo and when I tried to install FiveM it asked for permission for FiveM to install.
Upon pressing “confirm” it still put a lot of files in quaratine.

I still suggest you to look through your anti virus program for “Blocked Programs” or “Quaratined Programs” and see if some of FiveM files are there.
