Dear Community,

when starting Fing (Desktop), it says: "Fing service not found".

As I found out searching this forum, this is a common error. I tried many things like rebooting the Mac, completely uninstalling Fing with the cleaning tool CleanMyMac, reinstalling the latest version.

Fing App is located directly in my MacOS's Application directory. At the first launch it asks for my password, which I of course enter correctly. So the installation procedure looks fine.

I also tried launching the fing service manually via terminal. It says, it is already running.

What else can I do to fix this error?

Thank you very much in advance

Kind regards
Ben K.

    Thank you, that information helped.
    I moved back to v2.9 and deactivated automatic updates.
    Working fine.

    Hi BenK885 
    I've successfully rolled back to 2.6 on my Mojave setup using the details in this post. but is there any way of getting hold of that v2.9 at all?
