    Hi Lily,

    As you can see on previous note, the issue reported was not a compatibility issue.

    We are working on supporting (and providing) Python 3.9 on a future release of the ChemOffice.

    Can you provide additional details of the issue you are having with ChemScript?  Please submit a ticket with support and we will be happy to assist you.

    So it turns out it is not Win 11, but rather was an encoding setting (enabling Windows' UTF-8 support) - should anyone run into the same issues.


    In any case: Please update the dependencies - there have been so many great improvements to Python in the last 6 years (since Python 3.2's EOL), and it is really a pity that one cannot use these features with such a useful tool as ChemScript.

    I also can't use ChemScript anymore, smash karts and I'm sure many will follow Microsoft's current update initiative. We hope you help! Thank you very much!
