I have been using Samsung Smart Switch in Windows 10 to backup my Samsung S9+. However, now I have a problem in starting the Samsung Smart Switch. After launching, it tries to update the program, but fails everytime. I have tried to re-install the program with no success (downloading a new version of the program from the Samsung download center), and even tried it in two different computers. Any ideas to get the Samsung Smart Switch running again.

Hi @Ville , May I ask which Browser you are using, have you tried alternative Browers when downloading ? I know that in the past there were issues with Smart Switch on Firefox-Windows 10.
I do not work for Samsung or make Samsung Products but provide independent advice and valuable contributions.
My Device- S21 Ultra 5G ( SM-998B/DS ) CSC= BTU , 12GB/256GB

I have not managed to completely solve the problem. However, now I downloaded and installed the latest version of Smart Switch, and it is at least somehow working. It still suggest to update Smart Switch every time the program is executed, but now I can just cancel it and the application seems to work properly. This very peculiar since previously I have had no problems with Smart Switch.

I am having the same problem. Smart switch tries to update "some components", but gets stuck on 100% download and never completes the update. I have unistalled and reinstalled several times on several different computers. I am not trying to backup my phone, I am trying to update my Galaxy s20 ultra that has been carrier umlocked and needs to be updated through smart switch.
Please Help. Thanks.

I had the same problem. Smart Switch would download the update (v4.2.2), but then app would close when the download got to 100%. I would open Smart Switch again, and the same issue would occur so I couldn't use the application because it tried to updated each time I opened it and then it would close automatically. I downloaded and installed the new version of Smart Switch from the Samsung website over the top of the existing installation on Windows 10 1909, and now it's working without any issues.

Same here as you, Xenorm, explained. Also upgrading to 4.2.2 and failing at 100%. Even aborting the update does not help in my case. It will just reinitiate the update after a few seconds...
Why does this not get fixed?
Does anybody know where to download and install version 4.2.2 manually?

I have the same issue! When are they gonna fix this? I need to do a backup on my phone 😞
4.2.20072_4.exe tries to download. When it reaches 100% it shuts down and restarts when I open the program again.
