Windows 10 - cannot enable NextDNS. "An Error Append while trying to communicate with NextDNS Windows Service"

Suddenly I cannot enable NextDNS in Windows 10. When I do, I get the error "An Error Append while trying to communicate with NextDNS Windows Service".

I tried reinstalling the app twice.

I saw that Microsoft Defender was blocking it. However, even after adding a folder exclusion for c:\Program Files (x86)\NextDNS, I still receive the same error and cannot enable.

Windows 10 Pro (19041.985)

    I solved this error by disabling nextdns thru the icon. Afther that the installer moves on.

    This is pitiful considering I'm paying for a subscription.  Nothing is getting quarantined.  In fact I have all virus protection turned off during install.  The service fails to install.  When are you going to investigate and fix this problem NextDNS?

    It failed for me on the ARM version of Windows 10. The included TAP installer is not compatible with the ARM OS. I got it running using the manual CLI option described at Windows · nextdns/nextdns Wiki · GitHub, but disappointed the Windows installer doesn't work across all versions of Windows.
