You have Linux and the desktop app is not working?

It's a problem that we're currently solving. We apologize for the inconvenience.

The app doesn't work. I have an error message "CLR error 80004005". How can I fix it?

It is a system problem not related to our App.

An application installed on the end user machine messed up some Windows components (.NET framework in this case).
Please try if that link works.
But since we do not know why it happened (maybe some old software, or unofficial pc cleaning sw, or a cracked app, etc…), the best is to “refresh the PC without losing documents and personal data” as explained  here.
