    are you the admin with the privileges I am searching for? ;-)

    Because the installation doesn't finish I have no app icon an no installation which could gather log files. Is there another debug feature or a debug installer which saves a log in another directory?

    On my own PC it is working as indended. But on my business PC, where I am also able to install programs, the installation stops. It askes for my user password and then the above error message pops up.

    Twitch client is working fine on my business PC.

    Hey there,

    Could you kindly send us your logs?

    Those can be found by right clicking on the OW icon in the tray and selecting Support. On the right bottom part you can find 'download log zips' and if you can send them over to we can take a closer look.
