Windows 11 servicing stack update - 22000.345​

  • This update makes quality improvements to the servicing stack, which is the component that installs Windows updates. Servicing stack updates (SSU) ensure that you have a robust and reliable servicing stack so that your devices can receive and install Microsoft updates.

Known issues in this update​

Microsoft is not currently aware of any issues with this update.

How to get this update​


Before installing this update

Microsoft combines the latest servicing stack update (SSU) for your operating system with the latest cumulative update (LCU). For general information about SSUs, see Servicing stack updates and Servicing Stack Updates (SSU): Frequently Asked Questions.

Install this update

Release ChannelAvailableNext Step
Windows Update or Microsoft UpdateYesGo to Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update. In the Optional updates available area, you’ll find the link to download and install the update.
Windows Update for BusinessNoNone. These changes will be included in the next security update to this channel.
Microsoft Update CatalogYesTo get the standalone package for this update, go to the Microsoft Update Catalog website.
Windows Server Update Services (WSUS)NoYou can import this update into WSUS manually. See the Microsoft Update Catalog for instructions.

If you want to remove the LCU

To remove the LCU after installing the combined SSU and LCU package, use the DISM/Remove-Package command line option with the LCU package name as the argument. You can find the package name by using this command: DISM /online /get-packages.

Running Windows Update Standalone Installer (wusa.exe) with the /uninstall switch on the combined package will not work because the combined package contains the SSU. You cannot remove the SSU from the system after installation.

File information

For a list of the files that are provided in the servicing stack update, download the file information for the SSU - version 22000.345.

I ran the New UWT5 App to repair the Windows Store using Dism and it fix it. I am now out.:love::love::love::love::love::love::love:
Speaking about the UWT5 App, does anyone know if the Settings -> System Sharing page exists on Windows 11 or not as I noticed that option was enabled in UWT5 but I am not able to find the sharing option under Settings -> System on Windows 11 even with it enabled.

I have that as well and I just ignore it.
Hi there

@alessiomagliozz

These days with very efficient SSD's / classical Spinners etc with proper sensible decent fast cache sizes , fast CPU's, fast RAM, decent mobo bus speeds and a good I/O subsystem why does anybody ever need to defrag disks any more -- in the days when a 20GB IDE disk was considered large that might have been a worthwhile exercise - I really haven't seen the need for this process for years now.

Cheers
jimbo

I have done update via WU but just "Right Click" problem (in "Single-click" mode) is resolved! Emojis are not all changed, most of them are the same as before! "Ease of Access" folder name didn't change to "Accessibility". "Alt+Tab" window highlight is not changed to new "Bold" stroke!

I did uninstall update and applied "SFC" and "DISM" to repair. I did install offline update (KB5007262) but all are the same, partially (of bugs) are fixed!

Hello boys and girls, I'm baaaaack. :D

This version plus a new Version of Eizo ColorNavigator fixed the ICC monitor color profile issues I was having.

In addition, while momentarily back in Windows 10, I found another issue related to photo editing. I have a wide-gamut 10-bit displays (as opposed to normal 8-bit per color displays). I have to enable the 10-bit in the Nvidia control panel. When I did, for windows UWP apps, the button text would not display. which made the store, feedback hub, etc. difficult to use as you can imagine. This took me a good part of day to identify what was causing it (as I had 10-bit enabled), ruling out video drivers, so it was something in a Windows 10 update.

Well that issue does not appear in this version of 11, so for the first time in a while, I believe I have image editing capabilities.

I actually upgraded from Windows 10 with a uupdump iso instead of a backup since I had done some cleanup work in Windows 10. Most of my 11 customizations were saved as .reg files. sp I got most everything back. except the start menu layout. Will see if I can restore that from a backup. Anybody got a hint of where that information is stored?
