Windows 11

Recommended Posts

Has anyone tried to download the new Windows 11 and if you seen or had any issues with the various P3DV5, FSLabs, and add-ons - I'm waiting until December 2021 while I'm on Christmas Vacation to decide on whether I want to download and upgrade to the new windows 11. I have a 2-year old high end PC and currently I have everything running smoothly with no issues after many months of tweaking, I hate to loose my current setup.

Regards,

Been using it for a month or more.  No issues at all, and I have pretty much most of the big add ons.

Also been using 11 for about a month.  Absolutely running extremely well.  I was expecting some weird happenings, but so far (fingers crossed) all is well ESPECIALLY with my P3d v5.2 and MSFS.  Those were my main concerns.

Better run the check to see if Win 11 will work on your computer first.  Looks like MS is getting into the retail sales of computers by their actions.

Only issues I’ve seen are with AMD CPUs, can’t verify yet, but a 2nd patch was supposed to be released to address the issue.  Other than that many have reported Win11 working well.

Cheers, Rob.

Hi,

I accepted the upgrade offer to Win11 yesterday.  No immediate problems, all seemed very smooth, loaded up P3D5.2, all good, enabled VR (Vive Pro2 - Vive Console - SteamVR).  P3D immediately crashed out.  I tried again several times with the same result, and mixed in with those was a single DXGI error which I've never seen before.

After some research revealed numerous similar experiences, I rolled back to Win10, and VR returned to normal.

Regards, Jim

I had installed Windows 11 but after a few flights I started the problems with the disappearance of the icons on the toolbar with crashes while I was using P3D.

After the release of the latest Windows 11 update (KB5006746) I reinstalled it and it looked all O.K but a check made after installation with FSC / SCANNOW I received  notification that there were damaged and unrecoverable files.

After running the DISM restore procedure, FSC / SCANNOW reported "no integrity violations found".

I have made about ten flights and so far I have not encountered any problems.

I guess the question is:  Why do you want to upgrade to Windows 11?  What is your compelling reason?

Hi Greggy_D,

This is the same problem that occurred with moving from previous editions of Windows.

IMHO, Microsoft ... for better or worse it will devote itself to developing W11 leaving W10  and it will be up to us to decide whether to switch immediately to W11 or wait before installing it.

The improvements of W11 compared to W10, are "subjective" and may like it or not but only by installing W11 you can realize the real differences with W10 and in the case not
were to your liking, with a simple click you can return to W10.

I ran Windows 11 for a little over a week, when the RTM iso dropped. Performance wise, it was exactly the same as Windows 10, both for various simulators but also the desktop experience.

But it certainly has some questionable UI decisions that felt like a step back from Windows 10.

Start menu feels like the biggest step back, with no real options of organizing and resizing like the W10 allows. Plus, they added a big 'recommended' box that makes no sense to me, just recommending me random files from my computer I don't need and takes up half the start menu. When you turn it off, it's still there taking up the same amount of space, with a notice of how you enable it again... ?

I'm a big fan of having taskbar overflow enabled, i.e all the stuff in the right hand corner is always visible. In Windows 11, you can't just enable this for everything, you have to do this PER APPLICATION. And when you install something new, you have to enable it every time... ?!

They made file association even more cumbersome, having to set it up PER FILE FORMAT? Instead of just selecting VLC for all video files. We obviously know this is to make users go "word not allowed, I'll just use Microsoft's applications then!"

They removed the clock from the second monitor, for some reason. So when I'm doing something in a fullscreen application, I can't quickly glance over and look at the time any more.

Ran into a bug, something I even tried fixing by opting into the insider program to get the very latest W11 update, where all the taskbar programs on the second monitor had no icons. So it was a guessing game of what I was clicking. And given that it isn't even fixed in an update still in development, I'd have to deal with that for months. The bug was reported and acknowledged back in JUNE by other people and still wasn't fixed.

And overall it was meant to be a big UI push towards a more consistent, modern UI but it STILL has all the old menus hiding underneath that you sometime need to visit to tweak certain things.

So overall, it's just Windows 10, with a rounded corners UI and slightly more annoying in terms of setting it up how you like it. I'll check back in 6 months to see if they fixed some of those issues. Don't bother upgrading if you expect any sort of improved experience in any regard.

I'm back to Windows 10 and I'm happy.

Yep.

TechSpot Windows 10 vs Windows 11 Performance Test

The TechSpot reviewer has a strong rep and clearly knows what he's doing in testing hardware and software.  Perhaps in time 11 will preform better than 10, but not now.
