How to get the Windows 11 2022 Update (22H2)


  • Staff
Windows 11 version 22H2 build 22621.521

It is recommended to wait until Windows 11 22H2 is available via Windows Update.


Today, Panos Panay announced the release and availability of the Windows 11 2022 Update, the latest version of Windows 11. Windows is a key component of how more than a billion people connect, learn, play and work. In this blog I’ll share how to get the 2022 Update (also known as Windows 11, version 22H21), details on our approach to delivering continuous innovation including improvements to the update experience, and information for commercial and education customers.

How to get the update​

Starting today, the first major update to Windows 11 is now available for users who want to update. Our launch approach to Windows 11 leverages our well-established update systems and processes. The measured and phased rollout will offer the update via Windows Update when data shows that your device is ready, as our objective is to provide a quality update experience. We will initially ramp up the offering availability in the first weeks as we monitor quality signals. If we detect that your device may have an issue, such as an application incompatibility, we may put a safeguard hold in place and not offer the update until that issue is resolved. To learn more about the status of the Windows 11 rollout, safeguard holds and which holds may be applied to your device, visit Windows release health. Learn more about the ways to install Windows 11.

Windows 11 devices​

Users with eligible devices running Windows 11, version 21H2 who are interested in experiencing the latest feature update and are ready to install this release on their device can choose to do so by opening Windows Update settings (Settings > Windows Update) and selecting Check for updates2. For more information on the 2022 Update experience for Windows 11 devices, watch this video.

Windows 10 devices​

If you are running Windows 10 today, you can check to see if your device is eligible (i.e., meets the minimum system requirements for Windows 11) to upgrade using the PC Health Check app. You can then check to see if Windows 11, version 22H2 is ready for your specific device by opening Windows Update settings (Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update) and selecting Check for updates3,4. If your device is eligible and the upgrade is ready, the option to download and install will appear: If you are ready to install Windows 11, simply select Download and install5,6. For more information on the Windows 11 upgrade experience for Window 10 devices, watch this video.

Delivering continuous innovation and value​

Our delivery approach leverages the well-established feature and monthly security update systems and processes used for the +1.4 billion Windows 10 and Windows 11 devices we have shipped and serviced over the past six years. Windows 11 will continue to have an annual feature update cadence, released in the second half of the calendar year that marks the start of the support lifecycle, with 24 months of support for Home and Pro editions and 36 months of support for Enterprise and Education editions.

We are committed to delivering continuous innovation by releasing new features into Windows 11 with increased frequency via our servicing technology (like a monthly update) and Microsoft Store updates, in addition to our annual update process. Our goal is to provide you with the best experiences year-round, when new features are ready based on quality and reliability, via our familiar processes. Today we are also announcing that a new set of experiences including the Tabbed File explorer, considered a component of the 2022 Update for all editions, will be ready this October. We will share more information and documentation when we initially make these features available. We plan a phased rollout timed with the October optional non-security preview release for these features and then they will be made broadly available in the November 2022 security update release7. Going forward we will continue to announce, document and deliver new features and experiences when they are ready (learn more).

We have listened to feedback on the overall Windows Update experience and are excited to announce two substantial improvements to the update experience for both feature and monthly updates for the Windows 11 2022 Update.
  • Smaller and faster installation of updates: We have significantly reduced the download size of feature updates, by ~450MB for many users. We’ve also reduced download and installation time of the monthly cumulative update, as well as reclaimed hundreds of megabytes of disk footprint to give back to the user. Learn more about these improvements.
  • Windows Update and carbon awareness: Windows will try to schedule update installations at specific times of day when doing so may result in lower carbon emissions. Many electrical grids are powered by multiple sources, including renewables and fossil fuels. When available, Windows 11 will now prioritize installing updates in the background at times when greater amounts of clean energy sources (like wind, solar and hydro) are available (find out more in this article).

Information for commercial and education customers​

Windows 11 is built on the consistent, compatible and familiar Windows 10 foundation you know, and it was designed for hybrid workforces. You can plan for, prepare and deploy Windows 11 alongside Windows 10 using the same processes, policies and management applications. For new information about the latest features for commercial organizations in Windows 11, version 22H2, see our latest Commercial blog.

We recommend IT administrators begin targeted deployments now as part of their regular Windows Update motion. For the latest resources and tools, check out our post on Tools to support Windows 11 deployment. In addition, to help make Windows 11 deployment easier, we encourage you to leverage the built in Windows 11 Readiness report in Microsoft Endpoint Manager and/or Endpoint Analytics to help identify eligible devices that meet the Windows 11 minimum system requirements for an upgrade.

Windows 11, version 22H2 is available through familiar channels and processes including Windows Server Update Services (WSUS), Windows Update for Business and the Volume Licensing Service Center (VLSC)8 for phased deployment using Microsoft Endpoint Manager or other endpoint management solutions. September 20, 2022 marks the start of the 36 months of servicing support lifecycle for Enterprise and Education editions of Windows 11, version 22H2.

Experience the latest innovation in the Windows 11 2022 Update​

We all need the latest technology to keep pace with working, learning, connecting and playing, and installing the 2022 Update is the best way you can keep your Windows device protected and productive. This also enables your device to receive the continuous innovation we will deliver over the next year with the 2022 Update.

As I have previously noted, for customers who are using a device that is not eligible for Windows 11, Windows 10 is a great place to be. Windows 10 will be serviced through Oct. 14, 2025 and we have announced that the next feature update to Windows 10, version 22H2, is coming next month, continuing to offer you both support and choice with Windows. As in the past, we will closely monitor the rollout of Windows 11 and continue to share timely information on the status of the rollout and known issues (open and resolved) across all Windows feature and monthly updates via the Windows release health dashboard and @WindowsUpdate. Please continue to tell us about your experience by providing comments or suggestions via Feedback Hub.

1 Consistent numerical version names across annual releases (“version 22H2” as released in the second half of the 2022 calendar year).

2 Eligible Windows 11 devices must have installed the June 2022 non-security preview release or later to update to Windows 11, version 22H2.

3
Eligible Windows 10 devices must be on version 2004 or later, and have installed the April 2022 non-security preview release or later, to upgrade directly to Windows 11.

4 Certain features require specific hardware; see
Windows 11 specifications for more information.

5
New Windows 11 users will be shown and need to accept the Microsoft Software License Terms after selecting “Download and install” before the download will commence.

6 Starting with Windows 11, version 22H2, the Pro edition will require internet connectivity during the initial device setup only, and if you choose to setup the device for personal use, a Microsoft account will also be required for setup.

7 Updates and upgrades to Windows 11, version 22H2 post the November security update date will automatically receive the new October features.

8 Downloads in the VLSC and similar channels may be delayed.

I don't have any experience with ISOs, and don't have any backup either. Not safe to use the Windows 11 Install Assistant for this?


There's really only two ways to get 22H2.

One is through Windows Update, the other is with an ISO.
Back in the day when we used to "buy" a Windows DVD... all that was, was an ISO image burned to a DVD.

These days you can just skip the "burn to a DVD" part.
We just right click the ISO image and choose: Mount.
It mounts the ISO image on a virtual DVD. Then we just open File Explorer, find the virtual DVD and run setup.exe

That's pretty much all there is to it.

Having a backup is just common sense. IF anything goes wrong, you can just restore from the backup.
Backup/restore is like System Restore... but unlike System Restore... it works. :-)



But, like @flashh4 said... you can also just wait. There's nothing really special about 22H2.






Just for something to ponder... here is a tutorial and a short version, for an In-Place Upgrade...





Here is the short version of the In-place upgrade tutorial...

DISABLE non-Microsoft:
a) antivirus software
b) firewall software
c) drive encryption software

Make a full OS backup with a program like Macrium Reflect (free)
Macrium Software | Macrium Reflect Free

Go here and get the Windows 11 ISO (use the 3rd option, like in the pic below), and save the ISO to your desktop.
Download Windows 11
The ISO must be downloaded in the same language as you are using in Windows, to be able to keep your Programs and Files.

000000 Win 11 ISO.png



Right click the ISO image and choose: MOUNT
Open File Explorer and you will see a new drive letter. It will "look" like a DVD optical drive.
Double click the new drive letter to open it.
Find setup.exe and double click it to start the in-place upgrade.

Choose the Keep personal files and apps option.

After it's all done... to UNmount the ISO image, right click the new drive letter and choose: EJECT.


The ONLY thing you will lose is some of your personalizations. Your programs and data will be intact.

don't have any backup
Not safe to use
Indeed.
It is not safe for you to do anything.

Start making backups onto external disks or accept that everything on your computer is at risk and commit to reinstalling & re-setting up from scratch whenever there's a problem.

All the best,
Denis

I tried and failed with way more complicated ways of doing this, like making USBs with ISO on them ...
This worked well and the PC is now on the latest beta.

I just used the windows media creation tool. When finished opened usb drive in file explorer and found setup, clicked on it and setup went ahead with no issue not even a warning about non compliant cpu. Note, didn't boot from usb just ran straight from explorer.
One real plus with update is that my Cannon scanner now works without having to manually restart WIM service.

It seems that with 22H2 appraiserres.dll is required for the installer, (if deleted the setup cannot continue),....
It has to exist, that's all. I replace it with a zero length file, made by creating a New Text Document then renaming it.

For the Love of Dog when will I be offered that update?!?

I heard the Home Edition will "Take?" longer for Microsoft to get it out
I have two fully supported devices that have been running 21H2 since last October. One has Home, the other Pro, both are quite new models.

The Acer machine with 11 Home (System One) was offered the update to 22H2 on the day it was released.
The slightly newer Dell with 11 Pro (System Three) is still waiting for it to be offered.

It has to exist, that's all. I replace it with a zero length file, made by creating a New Text Document then renaming it.
Another simple alternative is to open the file with Notepad, delete the contents and select Save.

Hi again guys. Finally, today the 22H2 update showed up ready to install. I clicked "Download and Install", but it keeps throwing an error message at me. Error code 0x80246019. I tried download again, keep getting same message. Is there a fix for this? Thoughts and help greatly appreciated :)

A quick internet search suggests that a common cause of that error is having USB devices connected to the PC while an Update/Upgrade is being attempted. I would suggest you remove all non-essential USB devices when you try again (i.e. everything except any required USB Keyboard/Mouse).

Hi again guys. I read through some threads on here about my error message, and one suggestion was to install W11 22H2 through an W11 ISO. I followed instructions, and now have 22H2 installed, yay! I do have a few quick questions though:

- After Install procedure and laptop reboot, I noticed that the ISO was no longer mounted, even though I mounted ISO prior to 22H2 install. Should I be concerned about that?

- Do I still need the ISO file after successful 22H2 install?

Thoughts and help appreciated :)

In my opinion 'Yes', you should retain the ISO as you never know when/if you might need to perform a 'Repair Install'.

No. Setup copies the files it needs from the ISO, after the 1st reboot all it needs is now on the hard drive. A mounted ISO is no longer required.
- Do I still need the ISO file after successful 22H2 install?
Keep it in case you ever need to do a reinstall, but you don't need it mounted for Windows to be able to run.

This is interesting, have not seen this before. On one of my PCs, finally today WU showed the 22H2 update was available. I started it. Download went fine, the update slowly completed....when it was at (I think) 89%, I walked away for awhile. I came back about an hour later, the laptop had restarted, yet Winver showed it was still on the latest production 21H2 release! There was nothing in History to suggest the update was installed or failed. Repeated restarts and WU shows no update available. I did the WU troubleshooter, still no update.

I wonder if I was in the middle of it getting "pulled", per Paul Thurrott?

For the Love of Dog when will I be offered that update?!?

Okay. I have four PCs. I needed 4 the way my old house was. My new one eliminated the need for my new laptop. Tried to give it to my wife but she loves her older PC. (She's giving up a beauty of an OLED, unbelievable.) Anyway 'my' laptop is seldom used and --

-- that's the one that got the update first. :ROFLMAO:

It went without a hitch. This morning I got another update on my main PC. Quick and again without a hitch. (Including an SFC check.)

Two to go.

Yes, that's to be expected. MS have said the will be targeting the newest machines first, one's they they and their OEM partners have tested and expect to have a trouble free experience. After they get the telemetry back from that they should start ramp up the rollout..
