Thanks for the error message, could you try an advanced reinstall of the app to see if this helps, since a similar message appeared in this older thread.
 
Let me know how it goes!

Hi there, are you installing this on a Windows or Mac device?
 
Do you have the exact error message you received when attempting to install the app?
 
Any details you can provide would be great!
