Recently upgraded my gaming rig, game and flight load, vpilot always gives this error message after saying all is okay and I'm unable to get past it, it won't connect or anything. This new computer is running windows 11 I don't know if this may be the issue. Any input is appreciated.

Probably smarter folks that can help you more, but just to get some more information, what sim are you running?  Are you compliant with the system requirements as listed in the vPilot documentation?

Yes I read the system requirements, requiring windows 7, 8.1, or 10, I gather the vpilot system doesn't work with windows 11. Do you happen to know of any of the other clients that may work with the Windows 11 operating system. I'm already making plans to convert this new rig back to windows 10 or would you know of a patch I could use to make it work with windows 11 currently?

Thank-you for the dedicated response to the issues I'm having i do appreciate it. So I have been using Vpilot for years on a Sony Vaio I7 with Windows 10 OS, without any issues I may add.  I decide to upgrade to a Digital Storm custom built rig with 50X more power speed and capacity than the laptop running windows 10. Running windows 11 and now for whatever reason, FSX is not running efficiently, it constantly crashes or freezes requiring the task manager to close the program. Any peripherals associated with Flight sim including add-on aircraft are not functioning correctly. I'm thinking it's the OS but not educated enough in the differences between OS 10 & OS 11 to be sure or if I try to change the new computer back to OS 10 will it make a difference. I just want to continue with the VATSIM community, it's very frustrating after spending $3000.00 for a new computer. Thanks  I appreciate the input.

I have tried everything to get this to work, it's very frustrating, it worked on a Laptop that is over 12 years old, at this point I'm just hoping that I will be able to once again be able to get onto to the VATSIM network, not promising at this juncture.
