Articulate storyline 360 failed to install. Error code: 3E8

Apr 29, 2018

I was trying to install Articulate storyline 360 free trial on my PC laptop but always got the error message.

The complete message said: "Storyline 360 version 3.15.15581.0 failed to install. The error code was 3E8. Unknown error"

My laptop is old with windows 7. Is this the reason?

Hi Carol,

Per this article, Storyline 360 is compatible with Windows 7 as long as you have SP1 (Service Pack 1) or later installed.

Can you confirm which version of Windows 7 is installed on your laptop?

You can check this by clicking the Start button, then right-click Computer, then click Properties.

A window will pop up that reads, "View basic information about your computer." If you have a Service Pack installed, this will be listed in the information underneath the "Windows edition."

Do you see a Service Pack listed here?
