New Product Development

As of November 15th 2021,HIMSA testing is complete and Windows 11 is officially supported for use with HIMSA products. However, we still recommend that you wait to upgrade your Noah System PCs until your Noah modules and compatible systems officially support Windows 11, as stated below.

Over the last month, HIMSA has performed a standardized testing on the released version of Windows 11, and we are happy to report that no significant issues were found for Noah System, NOAHlink or Noahlink Wireless. HIMSA has tested and supports Noah 4.13 and newer with Windows 11.

Noahlink Wireless driver may need to be reinstalled

Noahlink Wireless is a simple ‘plug and play’ setup, there is no software program for Noahlink Wireless setup or support. Once a fitting module that supports Noahlink Wireless has been installed, the hearing professional will simply plug the unit into the PC, BLE drivers will install or be updated, and the fitting module will search for and detect the Noahlink Wireless unit. 

If for some reason the drivers are not automatically installed, they are available here.

Noah Modules and compatible systems

Important: Our Windows 11 testing is for HIMSA products only, and does not include testing for Noah modules and Noah-compatible business systems. HIMSA testing was done on a clean installation of Windows 11.

Now that product testing is complete, HIMSA will incorporate Windows 11 into the HIMSA Certification Process.

For Noah 4 module certification, we will first make support for Windows 11 optional for 6-9 months. If you plan on using Noah System on Windows 11, we suggest that you first make sure that the Noah modules you use most are certified for Windows 11, or contact the module manufacturers directly for more information.

For Noah-compatible business systems, the manufacturers are in complete control of what operating systems they wish to support. Before you make the switch to Windows 11, contact your business system vendor for more information on when they plan to support the new operating system. We also suggest that you make sure that your Noah modules are certified for Windows 11, or contact the module manufacturers directly for more information.

We will provide updates on this page if more information becomes available.
