Welcome to the community. First, I would try rebooting your computer?

You need to uninstall the previous version of Xim Link before you install a newer version.

Which version of the Link are you running? Also as MRog said uninstalling before installing a new version might be needed.

I have the same issues since 2 days.  I updated window from the big April update. After the update xim link did not open.
I reinstall all xim link version available and still no success.
Any hint on why ^

Try reinstalling the C++ redistributables. The update may have changed/deleted them

I did try reinstalling C++
I dont know if this could be part of the issue but when I reinstalled the 1.1 or weekly version I got this message
"Warning 1909. Could not create Shortcut XIM Link.ink. Verify that destination folder exists and that you can access it"

That seems a permission settings issue. It looks something went wrong at the install. If someone can share a snapshoot of its permissions and you replicate on your PC, it might work.

Recently had a windows update? Most likely a security feature was enabled.

Iím getting the same issue, when I click xim link to open it, a load wheel pops up for a few seconds, then it goes away and xim link does not launch, no error codes, no nothing, just failing to open the application all together.  I uninstalled the old version, reinstalled the new 1.1 version, Downloaded both visual C++ versions or whatever they are called, it seems with the new windows update xim link is not conpatable anymore... :(

I was not able to find a solution.  I did rollback to previous windows version and it is working now.
This is probably a bug with the new windows update and xim link sofware
