Windows 11 build 22000.282 complete list of fixes
Here’s the list of fixes that Microsoft is testing with the update KB5006746 for Windows 11:
- Fixed an L3 caching issue that might affect performance in some applications on devices that have AMD Ryzen processors after upgrading to Windows 11 (original release).
- Addressed an issue for a small number of users that prevents the Start menu from working and prevents you from seeing the updated taskbar design after upgrading to Windows 11 (original release).
- Fixed a race condition that occurs during the early part of startup that might cause a stop error.
- Addressed a regression that might cause stop error 0x38 on some machine configurations that use non-ASCII text in the registry.
- Fixed an issue with the interrupt handling of certain processors that might cause devices to stop responding.
- Addressed an issue that causes PowerShell to create an infinite number of child directories. This issue occurs when you use the PowerShell Move-Item command to move a directory to one of its children. As a result, the volume fills up and the system stops responding.
- Fixed an issue that causes the Server Manager application to disappear after you use it to remove Hyper-V features. This issue occurs when you install Server Manager on Windows 11 (original release) clients using Remote Server Administration Tools (RSAT).
- Addressed a threading issue that might cause the Windows Remote Management (WinRM) service to stop working when it is under a high load.
- Fixed an issue that causes the Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) provider host process to stop working. This occurs because of an unhandled access violation that occurs when using the Desired State Configuration (DSC).
- Addressed an issue that causes a device to stop responding when you forcibly shut down the device while a Group Policy is being updated.
- Fixed an issue that causes file migration between Distributed File System (DFS) paths that are stored on different volumes to fail. This issue occurs when you implement the migration using PowerShell scripts that use the Move-Item command.
- Addressed an issue that prevents you from writing to a WMI repository after a low memory condition occurs.
- Fixed an issue with a hardcoded font in the PowerShell shortcut file that distorts Japanese, Chinese, and Korean language fonts. This update Addressed this issue for all newly created users on the machine. Existing users can use the C:\Users\Default\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Windows PowerShell\Windows PowerShell.lnk file to open PowerShell to address the issue. Alternatively, existing users can create a shortcut to this file on the desktop and use the shortcut to open PowerShell.
