I have tried and tried and gone round in circles trying to download the Windows version of Fing, and nothing happens?

    @Phil51, what link are you using?  Did you try this one?  Download for Windows

    I have tried this link many times on 2 laptops, one Win8.1, and two, Win 10. I just went round in circles with nothing happening. However I did manage to get a download from a third party site. But the result only gave me a command line version. If that is the correct version, I didn't understand it!

    Stay away from the command line version at least for what you want the product to do.  Could your router or firewall be blocking downloads from the Fing site?  I tried the link from my Mac and was able to download it so I know the link works.

    I have had no downloads bloked before , so i do't think that's it. I can connect with the link if I use my ipad but, I want it on my PC.. I will get rid of the command line version. Thank you for your help!

    Can you check with another browser as the link works for both Windows and Mac? Thanks

    Hi Robin, Thanks for the reply. Yes, now I have tried another browser, a file has downloaded, hopefully the right one.
