Hey Raju,
I encountered same issue, while installing on my laptop.
Workaround is download (ZIP) version of compass. Unzip it. Run Compass.exe found in it.
This shall solve your problem.

Thanks , i am able to run compass now but still not able to connect
Error - Could not connect to MongoDB on the provided host and port

I just checked the firewall check option - its timing out but the text says

You have reached this page on port 27017 .

Your network allows you to use this port. (Assuming that your network is not doing advanced traffic filtering.)

Any help is much appreciated

@Abdullah_42755Thank you so much for your response. With your instructions, I was able to successfully install this version of Compass which has the “Schema” and “Validation” views.

It could very well be that company settings and policies block the use of this software and its traffic. I suggest you have a friendly chat with your IT team.

Check your firewall settings. You may re test disabling your firewall as well.
