Update your driver:
The out-of-date network drivers are another source of network link issues. The solution, right? Check this with a manual download.
Go to the Network’s official page. Looking for Drivers.
Make sure to find the latest and then install the download.
Edit the hosts File:
Another source of receiving an error message regarding “Windows cannot connect with the app” is your hosts script. So, it is recommended that you take it out of the image.
