It is possible that the problem arises due to corrupted system files, missing Windows updates, and other reasons. The problem can be solved in a number of ways. Let’s go through each one.
What is the reason why Bin64\InstallManagerAPP.exe does not exist?
A number of reasons can lead to this error:
Damaged or corrupt registry keys or system files: drivers are designed according to the corresponding system files or registry keys. Therefore, if any of the system files are corrupted, it will cause a driver installation error.
Lack of critical or recommended Windows updates: As explained above, drivers are developed according to the corresponding system files or registry keys. They also require certain Windows updates to work properly, such as firmware or security updates.
Conflicts between the graphics driver and the software: The driver software file itself may be corrupt or may not be the most appropriate file for your graphics driver, as users sometimes download the wrong driver files.
False messages blocked by anti-virus software: Anti-virus software can block the installation process, causing this error. It is always recommended to disable antivirus before installing the driver.
