When can I upgrade to Windows 11?

Before you upgrade, make sure you’re familiar with Windows 11 specifications and system requirements and that your computer supports Windows 11. Confirm you have a reliable backup and can restore to your current version in case you run into issues. If possible, upgrade in a test environment to ensure your third-party plug-ins, workflows, and configuration continue to work as expected.

We strongly recommend you wait until we have released a compatible version of your app.
