Stop Computer from Updating to Windows 11

Due to the various problems Windows 11 has caused its users, we recommend stopping your computer from updating to this latest version until Microsoft has resolved these issues. We understand that some users have switched to Windows 11 and haven’t experienced any issues, though we realize this will not be the case for everyone.

Windows 11 updates have caused some major conflicts with Artisan, including:

  • Driver issues with Zebra printers and other models
  • Sluggish speed and performace issues
  • Having to update Crystal Reports patch to use it with Artisan
  • Future updates might break other Artisan components

At the end of the day, we want to make sure your business runs as smoothly as possible. Avoiding these known issues with Windows 11 is a great way to stay operational.
