Windows 10 servicing stack update - 20348.945

This update makes quality improvements to the servicing stack, which is the component that installs Windows updates. Servicing stack updates (SSU) ensure that you have a robust and reliable servicing stack so that your devices can receive and install Microsoft updates.

Known issues in this update

Symptom

Workaround

Starting at 12:00 A.M. Saturday, September 10, 2022, the official time in Chile will advance 60 minutes in accordance with the August 9, 2022 official announcement by the Chilean government about a daylight saving time (DST) time zone change. This moves the DST change which was previously September 4 to September 10.

Symptoms if the workaround is not used on devices between September 4, 2022 and September 11, 2022:

  • ​Time shown in Windows and apps will not be correct.

  • ​Apps and cloud services which use date and time for integral functions, such as Microsoft Teams and Microsoft Outlook, notifications and scheduling of meetings might be 60 minutes off.

  • ​Automation that uses date and time, such as Scheduled tasks, might not run at the expected time.

  • ​Timestamp on transactions, files, and logs will be 60 minutes off.

  • ​Operations that rely on time-dependent protocols such as Kerberos might cause authentication failures when attempting to logon or access resources.

  • ​Windows devices and apps outside of Chile might also be affected if they are connecting to servers or devices in Chile or if they are scheduling or attending meetings taking place in Chile from another location or time zone. Windows devices outside of Chile should not use the workaround, as it would change their local time on the device.

This issue is addressed in KB5017381.

After installing this update, file copies using Group Policy Preferences might fail or might create empty shortcuts or files using 0 (zero) bytes. Known affected Group Policy Objects are related to files and shortcuts in User Configuration > Preferences > Windows Settings in Group Policy Editor.

To mitigate this issue, you can do ONE of the following:

  • Uncheck the "Run in logged-on user's security context (user policy option)". Note: This might not mitigate the issue for items using a wildcard (*).

  • Within the affected Group Policy, change "Action" from "Replace" to "Update".

  • If a wildcard (*) is used in the location or destination, deleting the trailing "\" (backslash, without quotes) from the destination might allow the copy to be successful.

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

If you want to remove the LCU

To remove the LCU after installing the combined SSU and LCU package, use the DISM/Remove-Package command line option with the LCU package name as the argument. You can find the package name by using this command: DISM /online /get-packages.

Running Windows Update Standalone Installer (wusa.exe) with the /uninstall switch on the combined package will not work because the combined package contains the SSU. You cannot remove the SSU from the system after installation.
