I tried to install the OSM route plugin with QGIS version 2.16.3 for 64-bit Windows, through Manage and Install Plugins but I get an error Plugin installation failed.

What could be going wrong?

    Can you please describe further what you mean by it cannot be activated? Does it crash,doesn't load or doesn't run? Or you can't find the icon (Web > OSM route).

    I cannot replicate your issue, I use QGIS 2.16.1 for Windows 64-bit. You could try manually deleting the plugin folder in your /.qgis2/python/plugins/ directory and then extract the plugin folder from the repository. You will need to restart QGIS after this.
