Installation of DevKinsta on Windows 11

I am trying to figure out a way to install DevKinsta, everytime that I try it keeps getting blocked by UAC

Hello @Turbochip and welcome to DevKinsta Community!
It looks like your current user doesn’t have the proper permission to install DevKinsta. I am not a Windows user but, if I am not mistaken, you can run the Command Prompt as administrator to overcome this.

  1. Open the Command Prompt as administrator
  2. Type the full path of the DevKinsta.exe (C:\Users\chip\Downloads\DevKinsta.exe) and press enter


Dear developers of this software, your software is completely broken and I cannot even install it. There is something wrong with your installation routine. Please fix it, it does not install correctly on the latest version of Windows 11 Pro… this is so frustrating, I have spent 1 hour on this and nothing works. I have no issues with anything else or installing anything else so I am left to blame your installation.

Please fix it. I am now moving onto trying Local by Flywheel.

P.S Here is an update, I just install Local by Flywheel and its working perfectly fine, no installation issues…
