Issue/Describe the bug
Attempting to update my Shadow to use the beta version. It goes through the entire uninstall components (16), but then during the install components, it fails on number 4 always. I tried multiple times, each time the same error loop occurs.
Shadow Beta 5.0.865
Beta Launcher v4.22.9 Client v3.9.7
Steps to Reproduce:
- Shadow is not booted up
- Starting the shadow beta app
- Confirming the willingness to switch to the beta config
- Shadow beta uninstalls 1 of 16 components, then starts to install 1 of 16 components
- During the install components, it fails on number 4
- tried and retried this, without solution, always fails on installing component number 4.

The main reason I’m switching to the beta version is cause of the article mentioned below where it states trying out the beta could help for USB Peripheral connection issues.
Same issue here, not sure whats going on
After yet another try the Beta Launcher took more time then the other tries to install some components and against all odds it came through.
I was then able to test my USB peripherals issue with my joystick (Microsoft Extreme 3D Pro). The joystick was also recognized on my Mac, this time the checkbox for the USB forwarding on the Shadow Launcher did activate, but still nothing happens on my Windows environment, the joystick doesn’t give any connect sound in windows and isn’t available in games.
This is currently a known issue with the recent Beta app/update. The dev team is aware of this issue and it should be fixed in the next beta app update.
For your USB peripherals issue, please create a new bug report thread and include a screenshot of your Quick Menu stats and USB Peripherals menu.
This issue should be fixed now with the latest beta app updates for all devices (except Chromebook, which is a separate issue).
I’ve progressed since the original post, hence the update I shared.
I’m now back to my original issue, the USB peripherals that don’t connect anymore as described here.
I can however confirm I’ve been uninstalling & reinstalling the apps (normal, alpha and beta) numerous times in between then and now and I haven’t seen the blocking installer issue anymore as described here above.
Thanks for the follow-up!
I am having the same issue I am on windows 10
