What should I do when bluestack fails to install?

I am using Windows 10. The Bluestack  will download but it will not install. I've tried it several times and get the same error message - "Failed to install Bluestacks." I would appreciate some help on what to do now.  This has to be downloaded before I can load Show Box.  Thanks in advance!

Check If your PC is compatable with the reqirements

I was getting the same error few days back, actually i noticed that bluestacks don't run on every computer. It it has some special requirements like you can't run Bitdiffender and BlueStacks on the same machine.

I recommend you to check out the BlueStacks System Requirements and be sure if your computer has something wrong.

BlueStacks installation on Windows can fail due to multiple reasons. It may be due to some incompatibility with your computer’s hardware, or the setup file itself. Before installing BlueStacks on your computer, make sure the following system configuration is met.
Bluestacks Graphics error fix
Dock Conflicts

It can be due to an older version

If this helps anyone, I faced similar issues when installing Bluestacks on Windows 10. The issue was that I was trying to install older version of it. Theoretically it should have worked but it did not. So I unistalled any services installed related to Bluestacks. Then I deleted the remaining folder manually. Next I downloaded Bluestacks 2 Installer: http://appsxpc.com/download-bluestacks-2-installer/. Then I restarted the Laptop and then trien installing it. Worked like a charm.

I think latest version of bluestacks is noe compatible, you have to try the old version for windows 10.
