Was FRST actually on the Desktop when you tried to run it?

System requirements for FRST are provided on the authorized download page, and in the FRST Tutorial - What it will work with

Farbar's Recovery Scan Tool is designed to run on Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8 Operating Systems. There are two versions, a 32-bit and a 64-bit version.


We are double-checking with the developer since he recently advised MiniToolbox worked on Windows 10 without any issues.

We will just have to wait for Farbar to confirm if it will work with Windows 10.

One of our Security Colleagues pointed out Farbar had advised back in June that if Windows 10 remained the same as the preview, FRST should be compatible. A couple of those Security Colleagues have tested FRST on Windows 10 and did not encounter any problems. So while, it is not official FRST should run on that OS. If not, the problem may be something else at your end and therefore, not necessarily FRST.

Fabar suggested you should just restart Windows and log in as a user account with administrative privileges and run FRST by double-clicking on it.
