Microsoft app mistakenly intimidates users with incompatibility with Windows 11

Microsoft app mistakenly intimidates users with incompatibility with Windows 11

Microsoft has put some pretty strict restrictions on which devices can upgrade to the unveiled Windows 11, but even so, a dedicated PC Health Check compatibility app seems to be giving the wrong information.

Many users tried to check their PCs using PC Health Check and received the message “This PC cannot run Windows 11”, even for those models that meet all the system requirements.

Now Microsoft vice president Steve Dispensa said the company plans to improve the PC Health Check application to address these issues.

In addition to fixing incorrect messages about incompatibility, it is also expected that users will receive recommendations to ensure the compatibility of their PCs. For example, on many devices TPM is disabled in the BIOS.

It also remains to be seen whether Microsoft will allow devices with TPM 1.2 or devices with Intel 7th Gen processors and older to upgrade to the new OS. Microsoft is not advising this yet. However, if the situation does not change, it appears that Microsoft has deliberately fragmented the Windows platform.
