Amazon Cloud Drive setup has stopped working

Posted: November 11, 2015 in Knowledge Base

I have subscribed Amazon Cloud Drive, but when I tried to install the Windows app in windows 7, i kept getting this error “Amazon Cloud Drive setup has stopped working”.

When I expanded the error details, I saw the following line: Problem Event Name: CLR20r3.

CLR is Command Language Runtime, which is from .Net framework, so that I suspected that the Amazon Cloud Drive App for windows required a .Net Framework which is higher than my current installed 4.0.

After I installed the .Net framework 4.5, everything is working fine.

To keep it short, Amazon Cloud Drive app for Windows requires at least .Net Framework 4.5.

    Thank you! It looks like this has been a problem with the installer for at least 3 years and your page is the first page I found with useful information.
