I'm not sure if his is a simtools / windows 11 issue, but what seems to be happening is, motion works fine for the first game session and continues to work fine until you quit back to windows.

Subsequent game sessions no longer have motion and simtools output testing doesn't work. Restart windows and it all comes back.

Anyone else seeing this / have these issues?

Hi mjwookey, 

Windows 11 is not supported for SimTools 2.x and will never be. We are currently testing the brand new SimTools 3 which will rework everything on the platform, it will also support Windows 11. However, we do recommend holding off with Windows 11 for now due to significant bugs and missing features.

We expect SimTools 3 to be ready in Q1 2022.

Hi all,

I want to share my experience with Win 11.

I did upgrade my gaming PC from Windows 10 to Windows 11. So far no problems, everything is working ok. I took a full backup image of Win 10 beforehand and full image of Win 11. My idea was, that at least that way I have both versions of Windows, even if I should restore Windows 10, but I did not have to. SimTools is working normally with my Win 11, the was no need to re-install any apps.

I didn't want to miss that Windows free upgrade. I made a mistake with my Windows 7 laptop, I did not install the free upgrade for Windows 10, and after some time (a quite long time though) Microsoft stopped advertising that upgrade.

PS: I have always used Macrium Reflect (free), and I have restored full Windows with it a few times, works great.
