Key notes

  • Citrix is currently in the works to develop a new virtual machine software.
  • The release date is yet to be confirmed, but it is set to meet Windows 11 requirements.
  • The VM software will be compatible with devices that have TPM 2.0 protection.

Citrix is currently in the works developing a revamped version of its VM software. Close sources say that the software is set to meet the newly released Windows 11 requirements.

Citrix joins the long list of companies that are updating their products to meet Windows 11 requirements. Razer is among the companies that released ultraportable laptops for gaming to adhere to Windows 11 requirements.

No release date just yet

The company’s spokesperson only gave details that the new VN will allow the software to run on Windows 11 and no further information. No information was provided on when the release date is likely to be, but given how fast other companies are rushing to get their products out the door. At the same time, Windows 11 is still relatively new, and chances are that it will be sooner rather than later.

Windows 11 VMs

Citrix is releasing vTPM support for Hypervisor 8.2 to allow Windows 11 to run on a virtual machine. There are claims that Microsoft’s new OS does not run on all VM software.

This could be because Microsoft had stated in the final preview build that Windows 11 will be compatible with TPM 2.0 protected VMs. TPM 2.0 is one of the requirements to run Windows 11.

Huge market

Currently, only 0.23 percent of VMs have TPM enabled. This means that Citrix will feel a huge gap once they release the new VM software. In addition, vendors have not been offering VMs with TPM capabilities.

Users can only wait for the official release date to try out the software. Citrix, on the other hand, should take advantage of the gap in the market and release it as soon as possible while Windows 11 is still the talk of the town.
