PRTG Desktop - Upon Start Does Not Display Anything



When I start PRTG Desktop it does not display any objects and continually shows the refresh spin wheel. I have to Uninstall it and Reinstall it every time I reboot my machine.

Hello Chris,

Please check whether disabling PRTG Desktop's automatic tray startup feature under "File | Settings | Notifications" help to improve the situation.

I have this issue, and the disabling of the PRTG Desktop's automatic tray startup feature fixes it.

Any news on a permanent fix, please?

Thanks, Phil.
