    Not having read the entire thread, I’m going to throw my 2 cents in, so you know what that is worth, and add that you might want to take ownership of the directory where application is located. I know NOTHING about the program but some applications will like to write to the application directory and not the app data directory.  This will sometime cause an issue with Windows 10/11.  You can download the reg hack here that will add the command to your right click menu options to take ownership of the selected directory in File Explorer.

    There are also links to details on how you can do this manually on that same page.  In case you are uncomfortable with running a Reg hack. 

    Its may not have anything to do with your issue but I had this happen in the past and taking ownership of the directory will not hurt anything if it isn’t the problem.

    Also, and I have not gone through each line of this thred so my apologies if this was already mentioned but was this an upgrade to Win11 or a clean install.  Both have issues and drivers may have been updated or not loaded at all depending on the type of install you did.  When upgrading from one OS to another it is highly recommended you do a clean install of the OS.  You do not have to but it’s a good idea as it allows Windows to install, well… cleanly.  

    Ok so that was my two cense worth and probably not worth two cents. Pardon the interruption from the peanut gallery.  I now return you to your regularly scheduled programing.
