Fiddler Ideas

The free web debugging proxy for any browser, system or platform.

Latest update fails

After running the latest installer it reports this error.

Running Fiddler did not succeed.
The system cannot find the file specified

And there are no files installed anywhere that I can find. I've been using Fiddler for years. This is the first time I've run into an error where I can't update the product.

    Regarding the original post: If you search your disk for Fiddler.exe, are you able to find it?

    Regarding the comment: Fiddler was recently changed to support per-user installs. Instead of making this optional, this was made the default behavior.

    Adding a comment to this. Why is the installer putting the files in the users AppData folder, it's an app and should be placed in program files (x86) on Windows.
