Garmin Express does not start: How to proceed
If you want to set up your Garmin device but Garmin Express doesn’t work, it can be very annoying. However, you can fix the problem as follows:
- Check that you are using the latest software version of Garmin Express. If not, download and install it.
- In addition, you may not be running the application as an administrator and therefore do not have permission. To change this, right-click the Garmin Express icon. Then select “Run as Administrator” from the menu.
- If this does not work either, you should check if you have any pending Windows updates. Run these so that your computer is up to date.
- Finally, the error may be in a corrupted configuration file. To delete this, press the Windows key and the R key. An input field will now open. Write “%localappdata%” in this field. Then search for the folder “Garmin_Ltd._or_its_subsid” in the directory. Select this with a right click and delete the file.
