VALORANT – Can’t install dependency, no Riot Vanguard installed.
I finally got beta access, but I’m unable to complete the installation for the game. I’m able to download around 3.3 GB before the error pops up: “Unable to install dependency”
Looking around, it seems people are able to fix the issue by reinstalling Riot Vanguard, but for me, my installation doesn’t download Vanguard in the first place.
Any suggestions on fixes?
UPDATE: SOLVED! I updated my windows 7 (cracked lol) to windows 10 which fixed the problem! I also formatted my drive containing windows 7 for a clean install of win10. I’m not sure if just upgrading will fix it, so I’d recommend backing up anything important on the drive for a fresh install. According to some comments below there’s some specific updates for Windows 7 that solves the problem, so if you are able to update to those versions, that could solve the problem.
