Windows 11 update KB5007262 fixes Microsoft Installer problem

The update KB5007262 is now rolling out as a preview to address the Microsoft Installer issue on Windows 11.

  • Windows 11 update KB5007262 releases in the Beta and Release Preview Channels.
  • The update fixes a Microsoft Installer (MSI) problem while updating or repairing apps.
  • Update KB5007262 bumps the version number to build 22000.348.

Microsoft rushes update KB5007262 to address Microsoft Installer (MSI) issue on Windows 11. On November 18, the software giant updated its health dashboard page with a new known issue where a “.msi” might have problems repairing or updating apps. As a result, affected apps might fail to start after an update or repair has been attempted.

Some apps from Kaspersky and others were affected by this problem that appeared after installing the update KB5007215 or later release. However, on November 19, the company released the Windows 11 build 22000.348 as update KB5007262 to address the issue. The only caveat is that the update is only available as a preview in the Beta and Release Preview Channels.

If you have a device running the original release of Windows 11, Microsoft recommends uninstalling the app and then reinstalling it again to get around the issue. However, since the fix is already available, the company will likely make the update generally available shortly.

While the update is available for Windows 11, other versions of Windows are affected by this problem, including Windows 10 21H2, 21H1, Windows 8.1, Windows 7 SP1, Windows Server 2022, and many other previous versions.

If you have a device in the Beta or Release Preview Channel, you can download and install the update from Settings > Windows Update and click the Check for updates button.
