Windows 11 - status

Hi all,

Did anyone already try to get something running on Windows 11?

Am I correct to state it's not yet supported on E85.30?
When will it be supported?
Anyone encountered any issues with the VPN client?

Love to hear your thoughts, tests, results.

Thx
Tim

E85.40 will support Windows 11.
We plan to release this version in the coming days

Are we sure that 85.40 supports Win 11? 

I have installed/uninstalled/reinstalled it multiple times, setup seems to complete without errors, but in reality it never gets to install vna_ap.  

System log shows entries with "The Check Point Security VPN service depends on the following service: vna_ap. This service might not be installed" - which indeed it is not.

I have followed the solution suggesting to add DeviceInstallDisabled DWORD into HKLM/System/CCS/Services/DeviceInstall/Parameters and then try to remove/re-install vna_ap on the command line after rebooting, however no go - I get the following error running 

vna_utils.exe -ap vna dev install netvna.inf cp_apvna

////

vna::_cpNTopen: Unable to open '\\.\vna_ap': The system cannot find the file specified.

installing vna_inst_util_install_win: called with inf netvna.inf for hwid cp_apvna

vna_inst_util_install_win: running class installer

vna_inst_util_install_win: UpdateDriverForPlugAndPlayDevices failed (hwid 'cp_apvna')(inf_path 'netvna.inf')(flags 1) (class_guid ''), (class_name 'Net') err: 0x103

make sure vna_coinstall.dll exists

Check Point Virtual Network Adapter:Failed to install device

/////

vna_coinstall.dll does indeed exist in the same directory as vna_utils.exe

 

Any ideas? All this is on Windows 11 ARM 22471.1000, running in Parallels Desktop 17 / Mac mini M1.

Thanks

Running Remote Access client on ARM is not supported .

Thanks - is there a timeline for compatibility?

Meantime I assume I can use Check point Capsule VPN app from the Windows Store, as I understand it's just a wrapper for Win's VPN functions?

The Capsule VPN app from the Windows Store should work just fine.
If you need ARM-based versions of our Endpoint suite (including Remote Access), best to engage your local Check Point office with the requirement.

I'm also trying to get ARM64 to work. 
Using E85.40 does not work.

I'm running windows 11 on a M1 Pro mac, and I'm at a dead-end.

Unfortunately ARM isn't supported, please discuss the need (RFE) with your local SE.

I just made the update to Win11 and tested the E85.40 (85.40.2076)... so far so good, is working very well for me. Here are my specs and blades for reference. As you notice, I'm also running Harmony Connect. So far, no issues at all, also no performance degradation.
