Hello all!

I’ve since this last message been able to install Wireguard. I’ve connected to my server and everything thing works perfectly. 

In the Device Manager I have 3 Unknown devices, all seemingly connected to Wireguard. It wasn’t until I deactivated these unknown devices that everything kicked in motion.

Upon further investigation I found 2 network devices showing Wireguard affiliation.

I have to open a windows terminal with admin access to open a Wireguard session that activates.

The thing I am wondering about is, why didn’t the options to run as admin work in the first place? I have checked my Win 11 installation and there is nothing outstanding nor nothing else strange. Any insights would be great.

Also how to get rid of the unknown devices would also be helpful.

> The installer downloads fine. When started it just sits and waits for something. After a while, don’t know how long exactly, but maybe around 10 minutes a message shows up and says the installer has stopped responding. I tried a retry, but same procedure.
> The .msi file downloads fine. When started, it says wait until Windows configures the install. Then after like 10 minutes, a message pops up saying the server isn’t responding. I tried a retry, but same as before.
