Win 11 laptop freezes when I click WD Drive Unlock.exe


I have a WD My Passport external disk which I connect with my new laptop (OS Win 11)
From the moment I click the WD Drive Unlock.exe the computer freezes and I can’t do anything anymore until I deconnect the external disk. So I don’t see the screen where I can fill in my password to unlock.

It works fine on a Win 10 laptop and on another Win 11 laptop. So it’s definitely related to the laptop itself and/or a Windows 11 configuration. Does anyone have an idea?
