Microsoft has updated its PC Health Check App and now the app provides additional information why your PC can’t run Windows 11. The information offered by the PC Health Check App will help users identify whether their system is compatible or not.

If you have already downloaded the app, launch it and wait for the app to get auto-updated. Or else, if you haven’t downloaded this app yet, you can get it here.

Windows users are confused about what Windows 11 will and won’t run on, and the previous version of the Microsoft PC Health Check tool wasn’t giving any clear message, it just displayed a pass/fail message with no details. Now, as the tool got updated, it should at least give some clue as to why your computer ain’t compatible, be it an issue with storage, secure boot compatibility, or your processor.

In some cases, the tool still doesn’t provide detailed information why Windows 11 can’t be run or isn’t compatible. Even some of the users on Twitter pointed out this issue, : “the processor isn’t supported” isn’t really an actionable item, as it doesn’t tell you why your CPU can’t run Windows 11. If you’d rather upgrade a component or two in your system instead of just going out and buying a new PC, you’re going to have to do some more research.

In such a case, you may want to wait on that, though: Microsoft still seems to be working through its messaging of what is and isn’t supported.
