Changes and improvements

  1. This update contains miscellaneous security improvements to internal OS functionality. No additional issues were documented for this release.

Known issues

Symptom Workaround
A prevalent issue is Devices with Windows installations created from custom ISO image or custom offline media. The devices might have the legacy version of the Microsoft Edge browser removed by this update. However, they couldn’t replace the new version of the browser.

Important: Systems that connect straightway to Windows Update to obtain updates are not affected. This comprises devices equipped with Windows Update for Business. Furthermore, any device connecting to Windows Update should always attain the most recent SSU and LCU without any extra steps.

To bypass this problem, you should first slipstream the SSU dated 29/03/2021 or further into ISO image or custom offline media prior to slipstreaming the Latest Cumulative Update. For doing this, with the combined LCU and SSU packages now used for Windows 10, V20H2, and Windows 10, V2004, you will need to extract the SSU from the combined package. Use the underneath method to extract the SSU:

  1. Unpack the cab from the msu through this command line (using the package for KB5017308 as an example): expand Windows10.0-KB5017308-x64.msu /f:Windows10.0-KB5017308-x64.cab <destination path>
  2. Now unpack the SSU from the previously extracted cab through this command line: expand Windows10.0-KB5017308-x64.cab /f:* <destination path>
  3. You will then have the Servicing Stack Update cab, in this example named SSU-19042.2006-x64.cab. Slipstream this file into your offline image first, then the Latest Cumulative Update.

In case, you have already confronted this problem by receiving the Operating System via affected custom media, you can mitigate it by directly installing the new Microsoft Edge. If you need to generally deploy the new Microsoft Edge for business, have a look at Download and deploy Microsoft Edge for business.

Subsequent to obtaining this update, XPS Viewer might be unable to launch “XML Paper Specification aka XPS documents” in certain non-English languages, including some Chinese and Japanese character encodings. This problem affects XPS as well as OXPS files. When confronted with this glitch, you may come across an error This page cannot be displayed within XPS Viewer or it might stop responding and have high CPU usage with constantly increasing memory usage. When the issue is confronted, if XPS Viewer is not closed it might touch 2.5 GB of memory usage before closing suddenly.

This setback does not affect most home users. The XPS Viewer is no longer installed by default as of Windows 10 v1803 and must be manually installed.

Experts in the team are working on a resolution and will deliver an update in an upcoming release.
Beginning at 12:00 A.M. Saturday date 10/09/2022, the official time in Chile will advance 60 minutes in accordance with the 09/08/2022, official announcement by the Chilean government about a daylight saving time aka DST time zone change. This turns the DST change which was earlier 4 to September 10.

Symptoms of the solution are not used on devices between 04/09/2022, and 11/09/2022:

  1. Time displayed in apps Windows will be wrong.
  2. Cloud services as well as apps that use date and time for integral functions, for instance, Microsoft Teams and Outlook, notifications, and scheduling of meetings might be 60 minutes off.
  3. Automation that uses date and time, for example, Scheduled tasks, might not work at the expected time.
  4. The timestamp on logs, transactions, files, and will be 60 minutes off.
  5. Operations that rely on time-dependent protocols, for example, Kerberos might give rise to authentication failures when trying to logon or access resources.
  6. Apps and Windows devices outside of Chile might also be affected if they are establishing connection to servers or devices in Chile or if they are attending meeting or scheduling in Chile from another location or time zone. Devices outside of Chile should not follow the solution, as it would modify their local time on the device.
To mitigate this problem, kindly have a look at one of the underneath:

1] Windows 10, v21H2: Possible issues caused by new Daylight Savings Time in Chile

2] Windows 10, v21H1: Possible issues caused by new Daylight Savings Time in Chile

3] Windows 10,v20H2: Possible issues caused by new Daylight Savings Time in Chile

The team is trying to conclude a resolution and will push  an update in an upcoming release.
