OS Compatibility Testing - Windows 11

Overview

Below are DoIT Departmental Support's (DS) Windows 11 test results for a variety of commonly deployed applications. Details of what was tested for each application are in the Notes column. Tests were conducted using a Dell Latitude 7490 with a fresh install of Windows 11 Education build 22000.194. Appplications were also tested with an in-place upgrade from a managed Windows 10 device to Windows 11.

Recommendation

DS recommends against upgrading to new Windows versions until all relevant campus security software applications have been validated as functional. Even once functionality is confirmed, units should always carefully consider their needs before upgrading. It is often best to delay OS upgrades until at least the first major update has been released by the vendor.
