    Hi, I just tried to install Unity Hub after uninstalling it(had some issues with it.), but now I can't install it.
    It just says "Installation Aborted" "Setup was not completed successfully.". No errors or anything.
    I'm running it as administrator, tried a different installation folder as well. Any ideas what could be wrong?
    Didn't seem to find much about it on Google.

    No logs is generated either.
    Any ideas?

    You can find the logs here:
    • Windows: `%UserProfile%\AppData\Roaming\UnityHub\logs`
    • Mac: `~/Library/Application support/UnityHub/logs`
    • Linux: `~/.config/UnityHub/logs`

    Already checked, there is no logs. Atleast not from the installation.
    The log file's modification date doesn't match the time I tried to install.
    I also tried to remove the UnityHub folder and then try to install Unity Hub, but it didn't generate any logs.

    Do you have enough disk space available?

    I got it to work by downloading an older version of the Unity Hub, specifically v1.6.1 by using the Wayback Machine(thanks to a link in another thread).
    It installed fine. Something's probably wrong with the new Unity Hub installer.
    And I successfully updated to the newest version 2.2.1 by updating through the old version of Unity Hub.

    Can you please leave a link to the Thread. I have been having the same issue as you and not being able to find a solution. Also it appears that on installing the latest setup it says installation aborted. I dont know whether this is due to having changed the Owner in Advanced Settings of UnitySetup.exe. I am looking for a fix ;(
    I cannot install the Hub.

    I got it working by removing all previously installed unity hub versions from Program and Features (in Windows)

    Hi, I can't remember what thread it was, but I managed to find the wayback machine link again:
    https://web.archive.org/web/2019041....cloud.unity3d.com/hub/prod/UnityHubSetup.exe

    I believe it is UnityHub v1.6.1 :)

    I was having the same issue, and then ran UnityHubSetup.exe as "Administrator," and it worked.

    Okay, so I downloaded, ran as admin, and it installed. Once the hub installed, I tried to download the latest version of Unity. It would get all the way to "Installing..." then it wouldn't complete. I have to extract certain files myself, and the package manager would refuse to work. Any help anyone?

    @ITZZZETHAN @EthanHunterUnity

    Hmm, did you update the UnityHub to the latest version via the UnityHub program itself, after installing the v1.6.1?
    That is what I did and I didn't have any issues after :)
    If you did do that however, I'm not sure what is causing it

    I fixed it!
    Just go to control panel > Programs and Features > find Unity hub (In my case it was still showing event after uninstallation), try to uninstall > one dialog would be popped up saying "we are unable to find this program, want to remove from the program and features list?" > click yes and DONE!

    Basically unity Hub installer is looking for the already installed version of it in Programs and feature list, so even after uninstallation, if unity hub is still listed on that list, unity will abord the installation.

    Hope, this will help.

    I might have to try this. Having the same issue currently. The app won't uninstall cause it says there is nothing to uninstall. Now I can't install unity hub. Unity installed but the hub prevents me from signing in.

    I'm having the same problem after I uninstalled Unity because it wouldn't let me develop an Android based application. But when I try to uninstall Unity Hub from Apps and Features, it just says it doesn't exist and flips me the bird by not allowing me to remove it from my installed programs list. The wayback link won't work for me either.

    Edit: To anyone finding this later, go to Control Panel and then uninstall it from there. F***in' Windows 10 is a S***show so Apps and Features is worthless.

    or You can just download ccleaner and then go to registry in ccleaner and then scan and fix all issue then the problem is resolved.

    just go to control panel / programs/uninstall a program / and look for unity hub and unity and then delete them..
    and walla you can install it again.. oh and you better manually make a folder to put the installation..

    Thank-you everyone, for all the advice. Am I wrong in thinking that the designers of UnityHub have done something of an inadequate job here?

    For those of you who simply deleted the unity folder from its original destination, and are stuck between cannot install and cannot uninstall ("Uninstall.exe not found error"). Try this. Worked for me.
