Quicken works on Windows 11

I’d like to report that I installed Windows 11 Pro preview/dev build 22000.51 and Quicken (latest version) seems to be working just fine.

Win11 installation took about 4 hours total as I installed it on a 10 years old Dell Latitude E5430 core-i3 laptop.  I replaced the SSD with an old regular 5200-RPM disk drive and reduced the memory to 4GB RAM just to push the limits.  Then I installed a few of my programs and utilities including Quicken and all are working.  The user experience of Win11 is not much different from Win10 as of now.

NOTE: I recommend against installing Win11 on your main computer.

Cheers and happy 4th!

ADDED: Laptop's TPM version is 1.2!

    Rumor has it Win 11 won't install on old cores below 7th generation. You blew that up, LOL.

    Exactly @markus1957, and yes @gooddog50 .  I edited it to include that my TPM version is 1.2 and the requirement is 2.0.  I went against all odds and so far all programs work as they did before, except bit slower due to less memory and traditional drive.  I was somewhat disappointed as I expected bigger difference and issues.  Uneventful!

    The "requirements" of Windows 11 were not stated exactly correctly, and are subject to change.

    The very fact that your machine has TPM at all puts it a leg up on a lot of machines that might be kicked out.

    There seems to a lot of confusion (some of it straight from Microsoft) of why these requirements were created and if they will really be enforced when Windows 11 comes out.

    For instance given a newer processor you don't need TPM on your machine at all.
    The same functions are built into the newer processors.  On my machine I had to turn on the feature in the BIOS, but that was about it.  Note I didn't actually install Windows 11, this was just to make the "compatibility checker" happy.

    Personally after looking at the goals of these requirements I'm probably going to take the tack of making sure that my primary machines are all running Windows 11 with the "requirements" even if Microsoft lessens them for the final release.  (With my "secondary" machines being ones that are old and only used for occasional testing.)

    TPM allows for hardware protection of the encryption keys.  Keeping these private is vital for security.
    The "newer processors" is needed for Windows 11 to do more virtualizing of processes.  As in, get the hardware to protect from one process that has been compromised by a virus to attack other processes/the operating system.
