On Friday 25, the Director of Security of Operating Systems of Microsoft, David Weston, announced a fix for PC Health Check, application that verifies the compatibility of computers for the installation of Windows 11. Previously, the tool displayed the same incompatibility warning without explaining its exact cause, frustrating several users.
According to Weston’s post on his Twitter account, the tool has received an update and will now provide more accurate answers after the diagnosis is complete. He says the novelty will help “users who assumed that CPU compatibility issues were TPM-related.”
In terms of hardware, the term TPM refers to trusted platform module. The component is an encryption processor present on the motherboards and has the function of ensuring the integrity and security of the system during its startup. Windows 11 requires the presence of TPM 2.0 to be installed.
We just made updates to the Windows 11 PC Health Check App. It now provides more detailed info on requirements not met. This should help in cases where folks assumed CPU compat issues were TPM related https://t.co/hTWMe16DWO pic.twitter.com/eZLTZMOdjT— DWIZZZLE (@dwizzzleMSFT) June 25, 2021
