Designspark PCB V10.0 on Windows 11 - fails to start

Hi All,
I have just upgraded to a new windows 11 Laptop and am attemptibg to install the free Designspark V10.0.
The install appears to gone ok, but when I click the Desktop Icon, I get a dialog box stating :
ERROR: The progam cannot find the support data file, or has a problem downloading it from its current address.
Enter the location of the file so that it can be downloaded.
(Underneath that there is an entry box filled pre-filled with)
'http://designspark.eu/data/'

I have tried searching for a solution, with much success, and tried contacting RS support, which seemed a waste of time, being told it only works on Wndows 10, which I could not find any confirmation of that, and can't believe that to be the case.

Any help would be appreciated.
Roy

If you enter that address in a browser, then it forwards to a site trying to sell the domain to you - rather strange?.

Presumably Win11 has more obsessive security features?, do you need to set the Firewall or/and Anti-Virus to let DesignSpark run?.
