Windows 11 support

It’s the Big Sur dilemma all over again… This time with Windows!

Roughly how long will SU take to support W11? Should I update straight away or hold off?

@aerilius, sounds good!

Some people are currently using 11. Soon we will find a user that will try it and report back to the forum if there are issues.


I’m using win 7, does that help?

I wonder if these will be “self inflicted” as it seems so many have those here. :wink:
