On a Windows 11, version 22H2 x64-based device, when you try to retrieve the Windows Update Options on the device, the client application might not log on to the device or retrieve configuration settings for Automatic Updates on the device.

For example, you run an x86-based (32-bit) application that calls the IAutomaticUpdates::get_Settings() method. If the get_Settings() method calls into the IUpdatePolicyReader::ReadUpdatePolicy method to retrieve the current Automatic Update Options settings on the device, the get_Settings() method call fails and the settings on the device cannot be retrieved.


This issue occurs because the 32-bit version of the IAutomaticUpdates::get_Settings() method is not available in Windows 11, version 22H2.​​​​​​​


To work around this issue, recompile your 32-bit client application to a 64-bit client application to run in Windows 11, version 22H2.
