I have upgraded to Windows 11 preview from Windows 10 and it seems that the three versions of Facebook Messenger all behave differently:

1) Messenger - standard Windows .exe - it was working but after the updated version was installed, it is not opening and there is no process running
2) Messenger - Universal App - this one works fine
3) Messenger (Beta) - Universal App - it is not opening and there is no process running

Looks like after I submitted the above on Feedback Hub, Facebook updated both #1 and #3 which works now. The only issue with #1 is that one has to use the installer from Messenger.com which is not shown on Messenger.com without Googling for it and then update using the app after installing.
