    If you are having an issue you should first uninstall the previous version then install 1.0.1, this should resolve the problem.

    You also didn't specify what the issue is? What do you mean that it doesn't correctly install, what are the symptoms?

    I got the same issues. My computer totaly chrasched and i got the BSOD when it automatically upgraded to 1.0.1 and i had to restart the computer. Then the FING folder was corrupted and it said one of the fing dll files (sorry, cant remember wich one, because it was in the middle of the night and i was tired) was not compatible with the Windows platform!! Had to manually erase the whole folder and  fix the register with CCleaner. I have NOT tried to install it again! I will wait for the next version

    @Robin Is this something you have heard of or experienced during the development of 1.0.1?

    Hi @Joakim
    Which windows version are you using? Also, Can you try to uninstall the Fing Application by using any Uninstaller app like iobit uninstaller and then install and see if it works for you?

    Also, @Joakim
    if restart PC haven't help to resolve this behaviour, these commands may be useful to windows (to launch from Command Prompt as administrator):
    Step normal case
      • Stop service command: sc stop Fing.Agent
      • Start service command: sc start Fing.Agent
