    Hi @bethdbethd! Welcome to the forum!

    What do the error messages say exactly?

  • It was saying my data is incompaatible with the version. I just tried to open it to get the exact wording.
    New message says: 1Password Couldn't finish updating.
    Web browsers or security software may be preventing 1Password from updating. Exit 1Password and your web browsers, confiure any security software you may be using to allow 1Password to complete its update. then try again. Cancel to roll back to the last version and try again later.

    The only security software I have is Windows defender and I don't know how to configure it.

    Hi @bethdbethd,

    Please try to do the following now:

    1) Remove all previous 1Password installers, if you have any.

    2) Download the installer for the latest version of 1Password 7.4 from here (save it, but do not launch it yet).

    3) Finish pending Windows and browsers update.

    4) Reboot your PC.

    5) Launch 1Password 7.4 installer that you downloaded in step 2 and install it.

    Are you able to install 1Password this way? Does the error remain after that? Thanks!


  • I will have to try this later today.
    Thank you.
