A patch provided by Microsoft removed the requirement to install apps that were not digitally signed by the Microsoft Store.
Updates and fixes are as follows:
Microsoft has fixed the issue that caused a second print queue to arise. The printer will stop functioning if this happens since the primary print queue will stop processing jobs.
Users may no longer circumvent Windows Defender’s MSHTML and ActiveX regulations thanks to the introduction of Application Control.
The problem with the Miracast interface has been fixed.
The problem where LogonUI.exe would freeze up has been fixed, allowing users to bypass the lock screen and proceed to the credentials screen.
Fixed an issue when calls made using both SIM cards would not go through. Example: if a call is made from the smartphone without first selecting a SIM card, the Dual SIM capability will not work.
The FindNextFileNameW() function now no longer causes a memory leak.
As of this writing, the issue that had been hindering robocopy has been resolved.
No more “Blue Screen of Death” errors when using OneDrive.
There was a problem with Roaming User Profiles, but it has been resolved. In such a case, the restored settings may not reflect your most recent preferences.
Memory leaks caused by mounting a network drive have been fixed.
Issues Already Identified
To Microsoft’s knowledge, has the first available optional update for Windows 11 22H2 fixed all identified issues? According to the company, it has not received any reports of critical OS problems recently.
Microsoft claims in the latest edition of the release notes that the company is unaware of any issues due to the upgrade.
There have been cases of failed installations, which is regrettable. According to one user report, Windows Update offers KB5017389 “along with the 2022-09 cumulative version for.NET,” but attempting to install either update results in an error.
After installing.601, I checked Windows Update for.607, but it was never made available to me. I utilized DISM to verify the reliability of the repository. In this case, we see zero indications of misconduct. I also ran sfc /scannow, which turned up no signs of corruption. On the Feedback Hub, one of the troubled customers wrote, “I tried the advised reset script again.”
If things aren’t going as planned during installation, consider using the.msu offline installer you downloaded from the Microsoft Update Catalog.
