    I have been running Flex on Win11 for three years and never any Windows 11 related issues with FLex.

    Hi Hjarry and Al,

    Have you had other ham software issues with Win 11 that didn't occur with Win 10 ?

    Thanks, Russ KR6W

    Pse correct me if I'm wrong. But I don't think that Flexradio officially supports Win 11 for SSDR?

    I don’t think we have an official document that states it like that. We have recommendations and allow users to make their own decisions. The application is limited by the .NET components I believe.

    (how is that for a vague answer) :)

    That's a very vague answer Mike .. Ever thought of going into politics? I say you are a natural 😁 Was pretty sure I had read that statement somewhere here long time ago. But if you say so. You are the Boss here at the Community (at least to me) ..

    The "official" answer is that FlexRadio supports all Windows operating systems that are currently supported by Microsoft. Of the current supported version of Windows, we have no preference which one you choose. Both function equally well.

    So Microsoft support for WIN10 Ends October 14th 2025, so pick your poison.

    Then, Mike and Tim, both The Bosses here .. I rest my case and might even consider trying out W11. Tnx for the clarification, 73, Johan

    I can expand on Tim's post (as in what does that really mean). :)

    You can likely operate SSDR on Win 10 even past the magic without issue.

    However, if you happen to open a support ticket we may have to say "Does it fail on Windows 11?" and may request that you test it on Windows 11 and see if the problem exists on Windows 11.

    This is normal in the software support business.

    In my experience running SSDR under Win10 side-by-side with Win11, I see no difference. Functionally, you'll be fine.

    But in my workplace, my Win11 computer is ostracized and firewalled-off from from everything else in the place :-O By having to turn off Core Isolation, I am put into a Digital Prison 😯 with only spiders and HF radio for companionship 🤣

    So, Mike or Tim,
    With Windows 10 support demise still a year+ away, is it reasonable to expect that the SSDR issue with Core Isolation will be resolved? Or is this an insurmountable type of issue that can't be fixed?
