Common issues and questions

On rare occasions, users may see an error window while setting up Bridge for Windows that prevents them from continuing the configuration. This error occurs only on devices using older AMD graphics cards due to an issue with the data libraries. 

The solution to this problem is to delete the libraries in question. This article explains the process to delete these files.

1. To locate the files in the following folder:

C:\Program Files\Proton AG\Proton Mail Bridge

2) From there, look for the three files: libEGL.dll, libGLESV2.dll, and opengl32sw.dll. Right-click on the file name and select Delete from the dropdown menu.

Once the files are deleted, you can continue with the Bridge installation.
