Denon DJ has been actively testing all applicable hardware and software products with each beta release of Windows 11. We understand how important it is for all our users to know exactly what works before they make the jump on any new OS updates.


We encourage all our users to remain on their current Windows OS until all necessary hardware and software products have been qualified for use with the new Windows 11 operating system. 


Please refer to this article for all Denon DJ hardware and software compatibility with Windows 11. This page will be updated regularly to reflect any changes to product compatibility as testing is completed.

How do I prevent my system from updating automatically?

Windows 11 is rolling out in stages to all eligible Windows users, but it may be some time before some users receive a prompt to update.

While automatic updates can be a useful feature for some, anyone that relies on the stability of their software and hardware tools should prefer control over which base operating system is installed on their system. Automatic updates will not account for software compatibility before updating which could lead to problems with stability and other functionality if your gear is not ready for the changes in the operating system.

To avoid any delays or downtime, it's best to be deliberate with the decision to update and use the opportunity to check that all your software and hardware tools will be compatible before making the jump. To turn off automatic updates on Windows, please do the following:


1) Navigate to the Settings Menu.
2) Choose Update & Security, then select Windows Update.
3) Select Advanced Options.
4) Find the Pause Updates section and choose a date from the drop-down list. Updates will not complete automatically until this date is reached.

Please be aware that this method will require that an update be installed once the pause reaches the chosen date. If you wish to permanently prevent your Windows OS from updating automatically, this will need to be done using the Windows registry. You can find instructions for this here. We recommend taking extreme caution before making any changes to your system's registry.
