An error occurred while checking for updates: We couldn't create that component (error code 3: 0x80040154). Version 84.0.480.0 (Official build) canary (64-bit)
I tried completely uninstalling Edge Canary and reinstalling it. Still shows this Error on About screen, although it seems to run fine.

@HotCakeX A friend had an error like this on an earlier build a week or two ago. Probably the next Canary update will simply auto-update as usual, without issue. If not, running the Installer without uninstalling it will probably work as they suggest.

But you saved me from messing about since I checked here first!

Just updated Edge and I'm seeing the same issue. I wish I had checked here earlier before I went through the trouble of reinstalling.

Hello @Don Cuthbert!
When you unistalled microsoft edge canavary, you should delete microsoft edge canavary's folder then you restart your computer and reinstall it. (100% that you can fix the problem)
Link to install microsoft edge canavary:

It have mention the error code 0x80040154, you have to expand Windows 10 in the seventh part and then find your error code to fix the problem.

Thank you for sharing your experiences with this. One of our program managers had some initial troubleshooting tips:
"1. Press Win +R, type cmd.exe and press Enter
2. Type “%LOCALAPPDATA%/Microsoft/EdgeUpdate/MicrosoftEdgeUpdate.exe /regserver” and press Enter
3. Reboot the machine and verify if the issue is fixed."
If that doesn't resolve the error, you can also try uninstalling and reinstalling Canary. And to confirm, there are no known performance effects with this error, it just means that you might not see version 84 changes until after we can push the fix in a subsequent build.
Hope this helps, and please let us know if you see anything else come up!
