  • You see Error #2302 during installation.

  2. Run Microsoft's Program Install and Uninstall Troubleshooter.

If you continue to have issues, contact your IT administrator for assistance. If no resolution can be uncovered, create a case with 8x8 Technical Support.

Error #2302

If you receive an Error #2032 during installation and you're on a company VPN, disconnect from the VPN and retry the installation.

If installation continues to fail, but you no longer see Error #2302, try running Microsoft's Program Install and Uninstall Troubleshooter.

Cause

General installation problems in Windows are often caused by issues in the Windows registry and/or conflicts with a previously installed program.

Error #2302 is likely caused by attempting to install while on a company VPN connection.
