Issue installing NextDNS on Windows 11
I don't know if this is just me or is NextDNS not working on Windows 11 anymore but I get this error when trying to install the client. Here are the installation logs. NextDNS shows in the systray and says it's enabled but is not sending anything to NextDNS as I checked the logs on my.nextdns.io. Another problem is that it isn't showing in Network adapters under Device Manager and not showing in the Network Connections in the Control Panel as a TAP adapter.

Note that version 3.0 of the app is no longer using a TAP interface but a kernel extension. Please try to uninstall the app, reboot and install again.
Also, please check that you don’t have an antivirus that would wrongly block the install.
Or just use the manual DNS setting and insert your DoH config link.
Windows 11 preview currently can setup DoT manually. And please NextDNS, add DoT to apple config
