PSU on Windows 11

Post by KeesdH » 04 Oct 21 12:14

So I thought, let's try Windows 11 on my new laptop. All went well and I started PSU (latest version). At first all seemed to work well untill I tried to share some pictures. I pushed the share button, for a few seconds nothing happened and then PSU hard crashed. Reinstall, restart etc did not help. I reverted back to Windows 10 (again without any issues) and PS works as expected again.
Anybody tried Windows 11 and PSU?? Or has a solution to this issue?

I don't think PSU has been updated nor released for Windows 11.

At the very least, i don't have a solution.

Windows 11 wasn't the simple update that I expected it to be. Apparently Microsoft changed a a lot for the better under the hood. That also meant that big changes for PSU were required.

Below is a link to a beta for *all* Windows users. The changes implemented for Windows 11 can also impact other Windows users as PSU has to run on all the supported Windows versions.

You can now install a beta from here:
<hert; removed the link...this is now live. download it from the website or Control Panel>

Please post below if you find oddities. Thank you for participating.

Ok, I installed W11 again and the PSU beta. The first impression is good. The reported issue no longer exists. Running some more tests now.
Thanks, Hert.

That's great news. If anything pops up, please let me know. Things to be on the lookout for are:

1. Windows raising an exception on opening
2. Any other runtime error being raised

Thank you

I'm pleased to report that build 3947 has produced no oddities on WIndows 10 running on my now elderly PC, a machine that lacks the capabilities needed to run Win 11 it seems.

Did a lot of work on W11 and build 3947. Including compacting the DB, backup, share, tag etc. No issues found.

I also am very pleased will work on both 10 and 11. I have a laptop for away processing and a tower at home. The tower is OK for 11 but the laptop isn't. I certainly don’t want to replace a laptop that deals with processing just fine just to run 11. At present I have mixed felling about changing to 11 which would leave it being the only one out of 3 computers in our house.
