Github Desktop Fails to launch after install

I’ve tried this multiple times, installing (and uninstalling) Github desktop both as the “user” and as a local admin. Same results each time:

GitHub_launch_error

Failed to execute “installGlobalFSFilter”

I’ve checked the log (which is very sparse since this is a new install). There’s nothing referencing this.

We are in an organization with very strict group policies. Not sure if that may be a factor. Other users in the same department are successfully running Github desktop.
