Releasing Windows 11 Build 22000.526 to Beta and Release Preview ChannelsThis update includes the following improvements:
  • We fixed an issue that occurs when Windows Server 2016 runs as a terminal server using certain cloud computing virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI). As result, the servers randomly stop responding after running for a period of time. This also addresses a regression that proactively checks to ensure that the CSharedLock in rpcss.exe is set correctly to avoid a deadlock.
  • We fixed an issue that might cause the time zone list in Settings to appear blank for users who are not administrators.
  • We fixed an issue that affects the Windows search service and occurs when you query using the proximity operator.
  • We fixed an issue that fails to show the Startup impact values in Task Manager.
  • We fixed an issue that prevents ShellWindows() from returning the InternetExplorer object when iexplore.exe runs in the Microsoft Edge Internet Explorer mode context.
  • We provided the ability to share cookies between Microsoft Edge Internet Explorer mode and Microsoft Edge.
  • We fixed an issue that affects dialog boxes in Microsoft Edge Internet Explorer mode.
  • We fixed an issue that causes Microsoft Edge Internet Explorer mode to stop working when you press the F1 key.
  • We fixed an issue that causes the improper cleanup of Dynamic Data Exchange (DDE) objects. This prevents session teardown and causes a session to stop responding.
  • We fixed an issue that prevents printing from operating properly for some low integrity process apps.
  • We introduced support for Windows Hello for Business Cloud Trust. This is a new deployment model for hybrid deployments of Windows Hello for Business. It uses the same technology and deployment steps that support on-premises single sign-on (SSO) for Fast IDentity Online (FIDO) security keys. Cloud Trust removes the public-key infrastructure (PKI) requirements for deploying Windows and simplifies the Windows Hello for Business deployment experience.
  • We fixed an issue that prevents you from unloading and reloading drivers when the drivers are protected Hypervisor-protected Code Integrity (HVCI).
  • We fixed an issue that affects the Silent BitLocker enablement policy and might unintentionally add a Trusted Platform Module (TPM) protector.
  • We fixed a reliability issue that affects the use of the Remote Desktop app to mount a client’s local drive to a terminal server session.
  • We fixed an issue that displays right-to-left (RTL) language text as left justified on File Explorer command menus and context menus.
  • We fixed an issue that prevents you from reaching the LanguagePackManagement configuration service provider (CSP) using the Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) Bridge.
  • We opened Microsoft Office files that are in the Start menu’s recommended section in the browser. This occurs if the device does not have an appropriate Microsoft Office license and the file is stored in Microsoft OneDrive or Microsoft SharePoint. If there is a license, the file will open in the desktop app instead.
  • We fixed an issue that causes a mismatch between a Remote Desktop session’s keyboard and the Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) client when signing in.
  • We added the clock and date to the taskbars of other monitors when you connect other monitors to your device.
  • We added weather content to the left side of the taskbar if the taskbar is aligned in the center. When you hover over the weather, the Widgets panel will appear on the left side of the screen and will disappear when you stop hovering over the area.
  • We added the ability to quickly share open application windows directly from your taskbar to a Microsoft Teams call.
  • We fixed an issue that causes incorrect tooltips to appear in an empty area on the taskbar after you hover over other icons like battery, volume, or Wi-Fi.
  • We fixed an issue that occurs when you try to write a service principal name (SPN) alias (such as www/FOO) and HOST/FOO already exists on another object. If the RIGHT_DS_WRITE_PROPERTY is on the SPN attribute of the colliding object, you receive an “Access Denied” error.
  • We fixed an issue that disconnects Offline Files on the network drive after you restart the OS and sign in. This issue occurs if the Distributed File System (DFS) path is mapped to the network drive.
  • We fixed an issue that displays the authentication dialog twice when you mount a network drive.
  • We added support for hot adding and the removal of non-volatile memory (NVMe) namespaces.
  • We added the ability to instantly mute and unmute a Microsoft Teams call from your taskbar. During a call, an active microphone icon will appear on the taskbar so that you can easily mute the audio without having to return to the Microsoft Teams call window.

Releasing Windows 11 Build 22000.588 to Beta and Release Preview Channels

This update includes the following improvements:
  • New! We displayed up to three high priority toast notifications simultaneously.

  • We fixed an issue that causes SystemSettings.exe to stop working.
  • We fixed an issue that affects searchindexer.exe and prevents Microsoft Outlook’s offline search from returning recent emails.

  • We fixed an issue that returns an error message when you browse for a domain or organizational unit (OU). This issue occurs because of improper zeroing out of memory.
  • We fixed an issue that causes the Group Policy Management Console to stop working after you close it. The system logs Application Error Event ID 1000 and the error, 0xc0000005 (STATUS_ACCESS_VIOLATION); the failing module is GPOAdmin.dll.
  • We fixed an issue that might cause the Group Policy Service to stop processing telemetry information for Group Policy Registry Preferences.
  • We fixed a stop error (0xD1, DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL) in the DirectX kernel component.
  • We fixed an issue that might cause Kerberos.dll to stop working within the Local Security Authority Subsystem Service (LSASS). This occurs when LSASS processes simultaneous Service for User (S4U) user-to-user (U2U) requests for the same client user.
  • We fixed an issue that affects the Key Distribution Center (KDC) Proxy. The KDC Proxy cannot properly obtain Kerberos tickets for signing in to Key Trust Windows Hello for Business.
  • We added support for Microsoft Account (MSA) Pass-through scenarios in Azure Active Directory(AAD) Web Account Manager (WAM).
  • We fixed an issue that logs Event ID 37 during certain password change scenarios, including failover cluster name object (CNO) or virtual computer object (VCO) password changes.
  • We fixed an issue that prevents the User Account Control (UAC) dialog from correctly showing the application that is requesting elevated privileges.
  • We fixed an issue that might cause a Microsoft OneDrive file to lose focus after you rename it and press the Enter key.

  • We fixed an issue that prevents you from accessing Server Message Block (SMB) shares using an IP Address when SMB hardening is enabled.
  • We fixed an issue that causes stop error 0x1E in the SMB Server (srv2.sys).
  • We fixed an issue that causes a mismatch between NetBIOS and DNS Active Directory domain names when you create a cluster.

  • We fixed an issue that delays OS startup by approximately 40 minutes.
  • We fixed a memory leak issue that affects Windows systems that are in use 24 hours each day of the week.
  • We fixed an issue that affects the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) option 119 (Domain Search List) by preventing the use of the connection-specific DNS Suffix Search List.

The error message is, “Insufficient system resources exist to complete the requested service.” This issue occurs after installing the January 2022 security update on the primary domain controller emulator (PDCe).
  • We fixed an issue that causes the primary domain controller (PDC) of the root domain to generate warning and error events in the System log. This issue occurs when the PDC incorrectly tries to scan outgoing-only trusts.

  • We reduced the overhead of resource contention in high input/output operations per second (IOPS) scenarios that have many threads contending on a single file.

  • New! We improved the Family Safety verification experience for a child account when you send a request for additional screen time.
  • New! Windows spotlight on the desktop brings the world to your desktop with new, daily background pictures. With this feature, new pictures will automatically appear as your desktop background. This feature already exists for the lock screen. You can also find out more information about each background picture on the web. To turn on this feature, go to Settings > Personalization > Background > Personalize your background. Choose Windows spotlight.
  • We fixed an issue that causes the Input (TextInputHost.exe) app to stop working.

  • We fixed an issue that prevents Azure Desired State Configuration (DSC) scenarios that have multiple partial configurations from working as expected.
  • We fixed an issue that affects remote procedure calls (RPC) to the Win32_User or Win32_Group WMI class. The domain member that runs the RPC contacts the primary domain controller (PDC). When multiple RPCs occur simultaneously on many domain members, this might overwhelm the PDC.
  • We fixed an issue that occurs when adding a trusted user, group, or computer that has a one-way trust in place. The error message, “The object selected doesn’t match the type of destination source” appears.
  • We fixed an issue that fails to display the Application Counters section in the performance reports of the Performance Monitor tool.

  • We fixed an issue that causes print failures when a low integrity level (LowIL) application prints to a null port.
  • We fixed an issue that prevents BitLocker from encrypting when you use the silent encryption option.
  • We fixed an issue that leads to a false negative when you run scripts while Windows Defender Application Control (WDAC) is turned on. This might cause AppLocker events 8029, 8028, or 8037 to appear in the log when they should not .
  • We fixed an issue that occurs when you apply multiple WDAC policies. Doing that might prevent scripts from running when the policies allow scripts to run.

  • We fixed an issue that might cause the Remote Desktop client application to stop working when you end a session.
  • We fixed an issue that affects the behavior and shape orientation of a mouse cursor for Microsoft Defender Application Guard (MDAG), Microsoft Office, and Microsoft Edge. This issue occurs when you turn on a virtual graphics processing unit (GPU).
  • We fixed an issue that causes Widgets to appear on the wrong monitor when you hover over the Widgets icon on the taskbar.
  • We added animation to the Widgets icon when you click or tap the icon and the taskbar is aligned on the left.
  • We fixed an issue that affects the rendering of the default Widgets icon on a taskbar that is aligned in the center.

Releasing Windows 11, version 22H2 to the Release Preview Channel

Windows 11, version 22H2 Build 22621 is being made available in the Release Preview Channel for Windows Insider Program for Business participants to validate on devices in their organizations.  See the blog post for additional information about commercial devices.

We are also making this build available to any Windows Insider in the Release Preview Channel via our “seeker” experience in Windows Update. This means Insiders currently in the Release Preview Channel that meet the Windows 11 hardware requirements can go to Settings and Windows Update and choose to download and install Windows 11, version 22H2 Build 22621 if they want. Once an Insider updates their PC to Windows 11, version 22H2, they will continue to automatically receive new servicing updates through Windows Update (the typical monthly update process).
