Update to the Windows 11 Support Toolset, Build 22000.378
The servicing stack, which is responsible for installing Windows updates, has been updated and is now more reliable. For your devices to be able to receive and install Microsoft updates, you need to keep your servicing stack up-to-date (SSU).
Concerns with this update
Provisioning packages on Windows 11 22H2 (also known as Windows 11 2022 Update) might not function as intended. There’s a chance Windows won’t be fully set up, and the Out of Box Experience might crash or restart without warning. Kits for provisioning resources are. The PPKG files aid in setting up new hardware for use in institutional networks. This problem is most likely to affect provisioning packages that are applied during initial setup. Check out Windows provisioning packages for more details on how to use provisioning packages.
The Windows Autopilot provisioning tool is unaffected by this problem.
Consumer-grade Windows computers and laptops used in the home or office are highly unlikely to be impacted.
The problem can be avoided if the Windows device is provisioned before the upgrade to Windows 11, version 22H2.
We have opened an investigation and will update you in a future statement.
Files larger than a few GB may take more time to copy than usual on Windows 11 build 22H2. The problem is most likely to occur when transferring files from a network share to Windows 11 build 22H2 using Server Message Block (SMB), but it could also occur when transferring files locally. Windows computers in typical households and offices are unlikely to be affected.
File copy tools that don’t use a cache manager (buffer I/O) can help alleviate this problem. The following command-line utilities are available for use in accomplishing this task:
Robocopy someserversomeshare c:
xcopy someserver>someshare c:
I’ve got some folder /J
We are investigating potential solutions and will update you in the near future.

Getting rid of the LCU
If you’ve installed the SSU and LCU package together and want to uninstall the LCU, you can do so by running DISM with the /Remove-Package command and passing the name of the LCU package as its argument. The package name can be retrieved with the following command: DISM /online /get-packages.
Since the SSU is already included in the combined package, attempting to uninstall it by running Windows Update Standalone Installer (wusa.exe) with the /uninstall switch will fail. Once the SSU has been installed, it is permanent.
