I run an AHK script on all my rigs to automate many tasks for both home and work.

Has anyone had any issues with AHK and Windows 11? Waiting for my update.

Limited use? That sounds like an issue.

I'm having problems running a macro that works fine on Win 10. The basic functionality is that it uses a program called Irfanview to make changes to images and then save the updated version, but it fails at the point where it tries to save the changes. I just figured out that the error was specific to Win 11 yesterday, so now I'm trying to figure out how to fix it. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
