Having updated Windows 10 to 11, fiddler will no longer launch. 

I've tried uninstalling/reinstalling, but see the same effect.

The application event log shows the following pair of entries each time:

Faulting application name: Fiddler.exe, version: 0.0.0.0, time stamp: 0x00000000
Faulting module name: unknown, version: 0.0.0.0, time stamp: 0x00000000

Bright ideas?

Try to uninstall and completely clean any remaining files (for example, while using a tool like CCleaner). Ensure that the folder C:\Users\iliev\AppData\Local\Programs\Fiddler is completely removed after the cleanup and is not being locked by some process. Then download (official link: https://www.telerik.com/download/fiddler ), then retry the installation. After successful installation, try to run Fiddler as an administrator.

Thanks for the suggestion...

I tried it, but I still get the same effect (whether running as administrator or not).

We tested on several different Windows 11 build machines, but so far, we cannot reproduce the issue locally. This leads us to conclude that there must be a specific local condition that causes the problem.

The error you see in the event log is Access Violation Error. This error could be related to issues like compatibility, memory conflicts, memory failure or lockup, malware, limited access to the Windows OS registry, etc. Check this article for more details explanations of what could produce that error and for some possible solutions.

Mainly, check and verify that you have enough free RAM allocated, that you don't have hardware issues related to the RAM, and that no third-party tools like antiviruses prevent Fiddler Everywhere's start.

No answers yet. Maybe you can help?
