Having to reinstall roblox every time it updates

We are all familiar with roblox updating and this installing menu


For me whenever it completes, it closes as expected but roblox does not open. When I attempt to click play again, it repeats itself. Updating.

The only I’m aware of for me to fix this issue is by reinstalling roblox. It’s a real issue, especially considering I have slow wifi. Usually installing takes 15-20 minutes and it’s a real pain noticing roblox updating and having to go “Well. Time to reinstall!” every so often. This never used to happen. It only started around a couple months ago.

Anybody know a fix?

Hey, I’ve already encountered this issue. You can:

  1. reboot your computer, and once you’re logged on to your computer,
  2. open only the app (Roblox Player), before opening any other softwares/browsers.
  3. Wait for the app to open .It will install the update and open the app.

Will give this one a go. Thank you!

It’s all good, it happened to me the last two updates, there’s a pretty helpful article about that : https://en.help.roblox.com/hc/en-us/articles/203312870-General-Desktop-Roblox-Issues
