The latest Windows 11 upgrade is rolling out to the release preview channel and labeled with the 22000.917 build number. Microsoft is pushing the new cumulative update to eligible PCs with a big list of fixes and a few changes here are there. Windows 11 users who opted for the release preview channel can upgrade to the new update later this month, read along to know more details about Windows 11 build 22000.917.

Microsoft releases the new incremental upgrade with Windows 11 22000.917 (KB5016691) software version. It is a small incremental upgrade, which you can quickly install on your PC. It is an optional upgrade that will be made available later this month on the release preview channel.

Talking about the changes, then the non-security update gives admins an ability to remotely add languages and language-related features. The update also brings enhancements to Microsoft Defender to identify and intercept ransomware and advanced attacks. There’s another change in the cumulative update which is related to SMB (Server Message Block) compression, where files are now compressed regardless of its size. Obviously, the new incremental upgrade also addresses many issues on the new update, here’s the complete changelog.

  • New! We gave IT admins the ability to remotely add languages and language-related features. Additionally, they can now manage language scenarios across several endpoint managers.
  • New! We compressed a file regardless of its size if you have configured Server Message Block (SMB) Compression.
  • New! We enhanced Microsoft Defender for Endpoint’s ability to identify and intercept ransomware and advanced attacks.
  • We fixed an issue that causes ServerAssignedConfigurations to be null in a few full configuration scenarios.
  • We fixed an issue that affects the automatic high dynamic range (Auto HDR) feature for cross-adapter resource scan-out (CASO)-capable GPU drivers.
  • We fixed a known issue that causes Microsoft Edge to stop responding when you use IE mode. This issue also prevents you from interacting with a dialog.
  • We fixed an issue that prevents virtualized App-V Microsoft Office applications from opening or causes them to stop working.
  • We fixed an issue that might cause the deployment of the Windows Hello for Business certificate to fail in certain circumstances after you reset a device.
  • We fixed multiple issues related to USB printing, such as:
  • A printer malfunctions after you restart or reinstall it
  • Being in the wrong mode after you switch from an Internet Printing Protocol (IPP) Class Driver to an independent hardware vendor (IHV) driver
  • Experiencing bidirectional communication issues that prevent you from accessing device features
  • We fixed an issue that affects the ProjectionManager.StartProjectingAsync API. This issue stops some locales from connecting to Miracast Sinks.
  • We fixed an issue that degrades BitLocker performance.
  • We fixed an issue that prevents Windows 11 SE from trusting some Microsoft Store applications.
  • We fixed an issue that prevents HyperVisor Code Integrity from being enabled automatically on systems that have Arm64 processors.
  • We fixed an issue that stops non-Windows devices from authenticating. This issue occurs when they connect to a Windows-based remote desktop and use a smart card to authenticate.
  • We fixed an issue that causes the Resultant Set of Policy tool (Rsop.msc) to stop working when it processes 1,000 or more “File System” security settings.
  • We fixed an issue that causes the Take a Test app to remove all policies related to lockdown enforcement when you close the app.
  • We fixed an issue that causes the Settings app to stop working on server domain controllers (DCs) when accessing the Privacy > Activity history page.
  • We fixed an issue that might cause certain Bluetooth audio headsets to stop playing after a progress bar adjustment. This issue affects modern systems that support Advanced Audio Distribution Profile (A2DP) offload.
  • We fixed an issue that prevents devices from receiving an offer from Windows Update for the same extension driver when that extension driver is already installed without the base driver.
  • We fixed a race condition that causes the Local Security Authority Subsystem Service (LSASS) to stop working on Active Directory domain controllers. This issue occurs when LSASS processes simultaneous Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) over Transport Layer Security (TLS) requests that fail to decrypt. The exception code is 0xc0000409 (STATUS_STACK_BUFFER_OVERRUN).
  • We fixed an issue that affects a lookup for a nonexistent security ID (SID) from the local domain using read-only domain controller (RODC). The lookup unexpectedly returns the STATUS_TRUSTED_DOMAIN_FAILURE error instead of STATUS_NONE_MAPPED or STATUS_SOME_MAPPED.
  • We fixed an issue that might cause the Local Security Authority Server Service (LSASS) to leak tokens. This issue affects devices that have installed Windows updates dated June 14, 2022 or later. This issue occurs when the device performs a specific form of service for user (S4U) in a non-Trusted Computing Base (TCB) Windows service that runs as Network Service.

As I said earlier, it is an optional upgrade that will be available in the coming days. If you joined the release preview channel in the Windows Insider program, then you can simply open the Settings app, then head over to the Windows Update, click on Check for Updates in case it is not showing new updates to you, once you see the update, click on download and install. That’s it.
