    Windows 11

    Since this seems to be more of a cosmetic update, would it be safe to upgrade and run Media Composer on Windows 11.

    Has anyone tried?

    I don't understand why this would even occur to anyone to try unless they just want to do it for fun. If you are a working editor or post person there is no reason to ever upgrade to an unqualified OS until it is explicitly supported by Avid. Why take the risk if your livelihood depends on it? 

    If you have a test machine and just want to cut some home movies go ahead and be that guinea pig, but I wouldn't even consider upgrading until it is certified by Avid.

    I'm sure there's more going on under the hood than just cosmetic changes.

    Even a minor update in version 10 has caused problems for some participants of these forums.

    But of course, if you'd like to try it out on behalf of everyone here, then be my guest!
