Performance maximizer - "System Requirements Not Met"

SuperDave

I'm trying to run the Performance Maximizer tool, but I'm getting a message that says "System Requirements Not Met".  I found an old thread here that said that, for that user, the problem was that they were running a pre-release copy of Windows 11.  Everything I can find says that Windows 11 was officially released back on 10/05/2021 - is it still not supported by this tool?  If so, is there a plan for resolving this issue?

Hello SuperDave


After reviewing this further, we would like to inform and confirm that Intel® Performance Maximizer is not yet supported for Windows* 11. The best course of action will be to try with Windows* 10 if you're willing to try that.

For more details about the Operating System versions supported and all the other Minimum Requirements (Hardware, Software, Memory, Storage, and BIOS) please refer to the Intel® Performance Maximizer for 11th Generation Intel® Core™ Processors User Guides.


For any other inquiries, please don't hesitate to contact us back.

Best regards,

Wow - what's the timeline for adding Windows 11 support?  Re-installing Windows 10 isn't really a viable option.

Thanks,

Hello SuperDave


Unfortunately, there is no ETA for adding Windows 11 support. What we can recommend is to keep checking our Download Center for updates to see if a future release may include support for that. Thank you for your understanding.

If you have any other inquiries, please let us know.


Best regards,

Sorry, did I miss a request for follow up? The most recent post I see from you says that I'm just out of luck - that you're apparently not even sure if you *will* support windows 11. Maybe there was another post that I'm not seeing in my end?

Hello SuperDave

Thank you for your response.


There was no "missed follow-up". You're correct, our latest post with an answer about the support status was the one posted on ‎01-27-2022. The other post (latest) from 02-02-2022 was just to let you know that we were closing the thread since no additional questions or comments had been posted. We're sorry for any misunderstanding.

We will proceed to close this now and thank you for your interest in Intel® Products.


Sincerely,

Andrew G.
