In brief, Finale 26 (latest version) hangs on startup in Windows 11.

I have deinstalled and then reinstalled Finale 26 and it refuses to start up beyond the splash screen.

So my advice would be to not install Windows 11.  I am regretting it now only because of the Finale hang up all other software seems to function correctly.

Any advice out there?

PS - the "downgrade" to Windows 10 from 11 went well and very quickly.

Any advice? Try Finale 27, the actual latest version released June 15. It’s functional for the 30 day evaluation period,

 

MM has not yet announced Windows 11 support that I can find.

Too late. I've already gone back to Windows 10. Can't see anything in v27 that warrants the price tag. Especially when Windows 11 is free!!!!

Do Make Music routinely monitor this forum?

They do, although they only occasionally make their presence known. The best way to "officially" contact them is via the Submit a Request tab at the top of the page.

Hi Peter, thanks for your post here.

 

We have been testing Finale v27 and v26 with the beta releases of Windows 11 as Microsoft has issued them. While we do not yet consider Windows 11 within the system requirements and is not supported for any version of Finale, we have not seen any major issues and the program has been launching and running as expected. 

 

Now that Microsoft has released the public version, we will test with this version to make sure that the results are the same and will provide updated information as it becomes available. Feel free to reach out to us directly if you would like to look into this further. If you have already gone back to Windows 10 though, I'm afraid there is not much we can do to find out what could have been causing the problem for you.
