1. You should not remove it unless you have got any errors.
2. You should not remove it unless you got any errors.
3. You should not remove it unless you get any errors.

I have doubts whenever I have to write a sentence like the above ones. And I have seen in many places that the first is being used.

My question is "when something has not happened actually, how come can someone use a past participate?" - you have got any errors

Please help me to understand them better.

Thanks!

Can anybody please help me?

Thanks,
Hi,

Still awaiting for your help in this regard.

Thanks !!!!!!!!

This phrasing is much better:

You should not remove it unless it is giving you errors / problems / error messages.

The three examples are not right.

3. You should not remove it unless you get an error/ some any errors.

You have got (American -gotten) some errors / an error. - The errors occurred..

Better: If the software has displayed error messages, you can remove it. Otherwise, you should not remove it.
shaun1. You should not remove it unless you have got any errors.2. You should not remove it unless you got any errors.3. You should not remove it unless you get any errors.
You don't need "any" in these. All of those forms after "unless" are OK.
shaunwhen something has not happened actually, how come can someone use a past participate participle?
It's OK to use a past participle in a perfect tense, and after words like 'unless', 'until', 'when', 'after', etc., the perfect tense may refer to something that has not yet happened or something that may or may not happen.

Tell me when you have finished.

@AS thank you so much once again!

I am curious to know why did you remove "any" and added "some"?

Can you explain me, it will help me in speaking the language better next time.

Thanks,

Thanks a lot!
Look up the proper use of "any" in your dictionary.

It is used in the negative sense and in questions:

It worked just fine, I didn't get any errors. (negative)
I got some / a few errors. (positive)

Did you get any errors when you installed the software?
Thanks Emotion: smile

From your answer above I have a question, hope you would answer.

Did you get any errors when you installed the software?
Can I use
Did you get any errors when you were installing the software?
or
Did you get any errors when you installing the software?

Thanks a lot!
