MongoDB Compass 1.22.1 for "Initializing" issue

Installing Mongo Compass version 1.22.1 on my Windows 8.1 Pro machine, it gets stuck initializing “something”.
Trying to connect it opens a new Mongo Compass instance/window… In addition, I tried to get an older version but couldn’t find it. Also, I tried to install a newer version, 1.23 beta, but I got the same interminable “Initializing” message. Please advise.

Try to install stable version
Make sure anti virus or other programs not blocking your install

One fix is to add C:\Windows\System32\Wbem to your path

Indeed, by adding C:\Windows\System32\Wbem to the PATH, I got it running :heart_eyes:
Thank you.
