Error While Installing ROBLOX (error Code 6)


“Error Code 6” is quite common when playing Roblox and you may encounter it in Windows 7, Windows 8.x, and Windows 10. This error doesn’t only happen with ordinary users but developers as well. One developer said that whenever he launch, uninstall, or reinstall Roblox Studio or the client, it triggers “Error Code 6”. He thinks some networks misidentify the file “” as malware.

One solution that might work is to install from a less restricted network like when you are in a college campus. Another possible solution is to add the ZIP file to your antivirus or internet security’s exclusions list. This way, the file will be ignored from your antivirus or internet security program’s real-time protection.

To try this, in your antivirus or internet security, go to “Settings” then look for “Exclusions” or something similar and add the “” file. Another way is to use a different browser. You can try Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Opera, or SeaMonkey. You can also try installing Roblox in compatibility mode. This method helped one user install Roblox. To try this, download the latest Roblox.

Right-click the downloaded “RobloxPlayerLauncher.exe” setup file then select “Properties”. In “Properties” window, go to “Compatibility” tab then check “Run this program in compatibility mode for” and select “Windows 8/8.1” from the dropdown list and then click “OK”. Run the program to install Roblox then restart the computer. See if this works.
