In order to fix the League of Legends could not install dependency error, all you need to do is follow the steps below:

  • Locate the installation folder of the Riot Games client (usually C:\Riot Games\Riot Client)
  • Find the 'leagueoflegends' folder inside
  • Find the file named 'LeagueClient.exe'
  • Right-click on the file and run it as administrator

At that point, the launcher should open and continue with the installation of the game. From that point on you should not run into any more issues and be free to enter the Summoner's Rift as your favourite Champion.

If that solution does not work, however, your next course of action is to attempt a completely fresh installation of the game. It is best to enact the full process of reinstalling the Riot Client too, and hopefully from that point, you should not have the issue anymore.
