You could try a clean removal/uninstall of Zoom Application and then reinstall it again. This is to ensure that any corrupted files/config on the application is all completely removed before reinstalling.

If you have a Mac - try uninstalling Zoom by using their uninstall file instead of putting the Application in the trash.
You can do this by going to Applications -> right clicking on -> Show package contents -> open Contents -> open Frameworks -> use the ZoomUninstaller file.

After this, try to reinstall Zoom again the re-test.

Hi, I have uninstalled and reinstalled but the I'm still unable to join meeting through zoom desktop app but can joi through chrome.


Thank you for the response.  so i have installed the zoom client multiple times from a fresh install and rebooted my pc multiple times as well.  Still same issue.   I cannot see the meeting screen on my laptop and as i am booted back to the home screen - i believe the connections keep terminating.
