    Is TSW2 tested with Windows 11? Do we have to hold off on upgrading to 11 if we use our PC for TSW2?

    I’ve been running windows 11 for a couple of months now and have not experienced any issues with running TSW. My rail driver and Track IR both work just fine as well.

    I ran Microsoft's "Can your computer run Windows 11" tool, according to which my processor is inadequate -- darned if I'm going to spend money on a new processor & whatever else that might lead to just to acquire a Windows interface that doesn't appeal to me and, probably, other "features" that I neither want nor need.

    Just done the "Health Check" on my PC and it rolled about on the floor with hysterical laughter. Guess I'll be staying in the Renaissance Age for now!

    Well for right now have to hold with Windows 10, my year old computer does not have TPM 2.0 enabled and when I talked with tech support at the builder, he said that the ROM BIOS on my mother board does not have it so would need to update and flash the BIOS. Think I will wait on this. The last time I did BIOS flash I fried the thing.

    Haven't checked my rig yet but I doubt it'll make the cut.
    What with upgrades requiring a second mortgage I feel like I'm being outpaced by technology and inflation.

    I think for the most part we are being outpaced by technology and inflation.

    I just forked out on a new graphics card, 3060, A new CPU and MOBO will have to wait even though my PC is well capable of running Win 11, i7 7700k. Passed everything except CPU despite it being released the same year as 8th gen.

    I wonder if Microsoft gets more bad press they will give more concessions or stick to being stubborn.

    Something something stagnating wages... ah I'll take it somewhere else. ;)
    You can cut your way around this restriction if you desire. Read the section of this article titled "How to Use Installation Media to Force an Upgrade":

    I assume MS stand to gain more from selling OEM installs of Win 11 on new PC’s as opposed to giving people a free or low cost upgrade. I may very well look at replacing my box next year but not while the price of certain elements, in particular GPU,s, are so exorbitant.

    The requirements for Windows 11 are for security reasons. I doubt there is a conspiracy for selling to OEMs, as they offered Windows 10 upgrades for free for pretty much every version of Windows (since 95?).

    That said, Microsoft makes most of its money from selling Windows from OEMs, not individual customers. Those USB sticks they sell online with Windows on it are a tiny minority of Windows sales. In fact, because of this Microsoft doesn't bother to put true anti-piracy measures in Windows anymore - it's just not worth their time.

    I had one issue with a saved journey. After updating to win11 when ever I tried to resume the saved journey UE4 crashed. The resolution was to save another journey in its place.

    Was running the Windows 11 preview build for 2 months then upgraded Tuesday to the Full version of Windows 11 not had any issues personally other than 1/2 UE crashes but i can't put that down to windows 11 as this could be a game issue not Win 11 issue,
