Does Darkroom Booth work with Windows 11?

We recommend Windows 10. For those purchasing a new computer stay with 10 if you can but if all that is available is Windows 11 all of our apps will run just fine; however, you may need to connect your computer to the internet every 20 days instead of the normal 6 months due to changes in Windows 11. This should be resolved soon but it will require updating to the latest version of Darkroom Booth once it is released.
