Fing Desktop on Windows 11

Hey folks,

I recently installed the upgrade to Windows 11, and now the Fing Desktop app does not launch at all - double-click it, or R-click and Run As Admin, and nothing.  No process even spawns.

I have it on my phone, but the desktop app was so much more concise and great for getting the best answers about my network in a smaller glance.

    Have you checked if the Fing agent is running under Task manager or not? Also, Did you try to uninstall Fing desktop and then re-install?

    I have the same issue with fing.exe application on Windows 11.
    Shows up as open application (with number 1 overlayed on top, as the number of notifications) on Windows taskbar and actual notifications with their relevant details are showing up in the notifications on the bottom right of the Windows taskbar.

    I just uninstalled whichever version I had and installed (as of 6th April 2022), however I get the same behaviour.

    Windows version details below:
    Edition Windows 11 Pro
    Version 21H2
    Installed on ‎11/‎10/‎21
    OS build 22000.593
    Experience Windows Feature Experience Pack 1000.22000.593.0

    Please advise how we can resolve or if this is a known issue.

    Thank you

    I have this problem too. At least since Win11 install last year. I've been using the phone app in the meantime. Not a beginner.
