Windows 11 servicing stack update - 22621.378

Known issues in this update

Applies to

Symptom

Workaround

IT admins

Using provisioning packages on Windows 11, version 22H2 (also called Windows 11 2022 Update) might not work as expected. Windows might only be partially configured, and the Out Of Box Experience might not finish or might restart unexpectedly. Provisioning packages are .PPKG files which are used to help configure new devices for use on business or school networks. Provisioning packages which are applied during initial setup are most likely to be impacted by this issue. For more information on provisioning packages, please see Provisioning packages for Windows.

Note Provisioning Windows devices using Windows Autopilot is not affected by this issue.

Windows devices used by consumers in their home or small offices are not likely to be affected by this issue.

If you can provision the Windows device before upgrading to Windows 11, version 22H2, this will prevent the issue.

We are presently investigating and will provide an update in an upcoming release.

IT admins

Copying large multiple gigabyte (GB) files might take longer than expected to finish on Windows 11, version 22H2. You are more likely to experience this issue copying files to Windows 11, version 22H2 from a network share via Server Message Block (SMB) but local file copy might also be affected.Windows devices used by consumers in their home or small offices are not likely to be affected by this issue.

To mitigate this issue, you can use file copy tools that do not use cache manager (buffered I/O). This can be done by using the built-in command-line tools listed below:

robocopy \\someserver\someshare c:\somefolder somefile.img /J

or

xcopy \\someserver\someshare c:\somefolder /J

We are working on a resolution and will provide an update in an upcoming release.

All users

Certain applications might stop responding when you use keyboard shortcuts to turn on, turn off, or change the input mode of the Input Method Editor (IME).

Examples of actions that might cause this issue:

  • For Japanese:

    • Using the Hankaku/Zenkaku (半角 / 全角) key on a Japanese keyboard

    • Using the default keyboard shortcut: holding down the Alt key and pressing ~ (tilde)

  • For Chinese:

    • Using the default keyboard shortcut: holding down the Control key and pressing Space

  • For Korean:

    • Using the default keyboard shortcut: pressing the right Alt key

This issue is observed for applications that load certain components of the Text Services Framework (TSF). Applications that don't load these components should not experience this issue.

This issue is addressed in KB5020044.
