sysmon is a console application which you have to run as an administrator and elevated from the command line.

did you elevate the command or powershell prompt and then call sysmon from it? if you did it that way you should at least see some console output unless the version you downloaded and executed is corrupt, missing a critical dependency, not appropriate for your os build, or blocked by security software.

sysmon also runs as a service once its run from the commandline. It has no GUI.
