Will MSTS run on Windows 11?

As Microsoft has introduced the upcoming release of Windows 11, some time this year! I was wondering if MSTS including OpenRails will run on Windows 11?

At this stage I have my doubts since MSTS doesn't work on "New" computers that was released with Windows 10 preinstalled and not an OLD system that was upgraded from Windows 7, 8 and 8.1 to Windows 10 "That's why some people has been successful running MSTS on Windows 10 because it's an OLD computer with older specifications"

And since OpenRails has not have any updates lately "I wonder if it's been neglected" there could be "Could be!" a chance OpenRails will probably not work on Windows 11 - If I was the developers I'd be looking at Unreal Engine for upgrading and future releases of OpenRails IT'S FREE to distribute if using a freeware licence agreement

If however, this new version of Windows will be able to run MSTS and OpenRails! Windows 11 will become our best friend. I just don't like our chances though!!

I can run it on my custom-built PC running Windows 10 Pro so in tha regard there is a good chance.

Hopefully a good chance, MSTS would work on Windows 11. I miss playing MSTS! I still have unfinished projects for both TSM and MSTS and some I have to restart because I lost an entire backup drive not exactly sure what happened to it, it seems like the hard drive died that's what you expect from a Seagate product and there was no possible way of recovering any of my backups
