Windows 11 servicing stack update - 22000.469​

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. Key changes include:
  • Addresses multiple Features on Demand package failures that you typically encounter when you attempt to set up or install Windows Mixed Reality.

Known issues in this update​

Applies toSymptomWorkaround
All usersRecent emails might not appear in the search results of the Microsoft Outlook desktop app. This issue is related to emails that have been stored locally in a PST or OST files. It might affect POP and IMAP accounts, as well as accounts hosted on Microsoft Exchange and Microsoft 365. If the default search in the Microsoft Outlook app is set to server search, the issue will only affect the advanced search.To mitigate the issue, you can disable Windows Desktop Search, which will cause Microsoft Outlook to use its built-in search. For instructions, see Outlook Search not showing recent emails after Windows update KB5008212.

We are working on a resolution and will provide an update in an upcoming release.

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 this update, download the file information for cumulative update 5008353.

For a list of the files that are provided in the servicing stack update, download the file information for the SSU - version 22000.469.

After this update, my "Windows Spotlight" is not working anymore. Now I just got the standard pic in the lockscreen. I have tried to disable/enable spotlight, no succes, I have tried this in Powershell (admin):
Get-AppxPackage -Name Microsoft.Windows.ContentDeliveryManager | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml" -Verbose}

But it is still not working. Any ideas?
I got the same problem after updating to build 469 then I tried follow Fix No.1, 2 & 4 then Windows Spotlight reworked :wink:

First delete the old ones and reboot. Then do it again.
Sorry. I thought that was a given.

I have successfully managed to run Windows Terminal from the Win-X menu with this Build 22000.469!

The only thing I had not looked into , were two erratic file wt.exe shortcuts, located at C:\Users\Default\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\WinX\Group3 location. Those shortcuts are NOT present in my previous Build 22000.438 Macrium backup. I don't know how they managed to be present into the Build 22000.469 after updating my computer. :unsure:

Anyway, after deleting both shortcuts, rebooting all was fine. (y)

The only good location for my Win-X shortcuts appear to be C:\Users\Gebruiker\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\WinX\Group3

@Stigg: I blame myself fully for not looking at your post KB5008353 Cumulative Update Preview for Windows 11 Build 22000.469 - Jan. 25. Feeling very dumb now. I thank you and everyone else for your help.

No worries, memo09. (y)

It's actually replicated in four different locations as I indicated in my original post about the issue.
The Win+X Menu is not the most robust of menus that Microsoft have ever implemented.

Sometimes you have to be persistent if you want to fix something. :wink:

The problem with Win-X and Windows Terminal is fixed now. But When I try Win+R and then type wt, the Windows Terminal still does not start. I suspect the alias function of 22000.469 redirects wt.exe not the same as 22000.438. Fingers crossed when the new Build arrives 🙏

Just one other thing. When I'm dealing with files that are in more than one location, I sometimes use the "where" command to see where it locates it in. For example, if you use Everything search engine, you'll see that calc.exe is in multiple locations, but the "where" command only locates it in: C:\Windows\System32.

Same with wt.exe. It is also in multiple locations, but the "where" command only locates it in: C:\Users\[Username]\AppData\Local\microsoft\windowsapps\wt.exe
For user profile paths, I prefer to use an environment variable. For example: %localappdata%\Microsoft\WindowsApps\wt.exe

This fixed my problem that enables me to open Windows Terminal with Win+R and typing wt. In the registry, I changed the (Standard) key-path of the wt.exe file. From:

1643752179158.png

into:

1643752228615.png

All problems are fixed with this registry-modification.

This fixed my problem that enables me to open Windows Terminal with Win+R and typing wt. In the registry, I changed the (Standard) key-path of the wt.exe file. From:

View attachment 20504

into:

View attachment 20505

All problems are fixed with this registry-modification.
You've actually given me the answer to the source of the original problem.
The original Group3 Windows Terminal shortcuts are not broken.

There is a problem with the latest version of Windows Terminal. At least, for some of us.
If I browse to C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\Microsoft.WindowsTerminal_1.11.3471.0_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwe\wt.exe, it won't open.

All you really need to do to fix it is to point the above registry location at a working path, as you have already done above. I would also change the path to match (without wt.exe). You've only changed the one line. Also, I prefer to use environment variables instead of the user name, but either way works.

Back to the original path to wt.exe that isn't working. I am just wondering if it's a security problem.
There is no "Edit" button for Permissions with this app or others at the same location.
I also have two "Account Unknowns" listed.

I have browsed through the changes of KB5008353 that's caused this to break, but I haven't found a likely cause yet.

Edit: I have fixed the original Windows Terminal location by changing the folder ownership back to SYSTEM.

FYI...
If you want quick access to Windows Tools within Explorer, 'Pin' the folder to Quick Access...

... except it won't show in the Quick Access list, but, it will reside in the Explorer jump list...

    Still assembled, still runs. Haven't turned it on for 13 years?
I bet you're thinking about it... :D
The Notepad thing's not a big deal.
Actually, after my Laptop reset, the other day, things are super smooth!
Office is all fixed, I'm pretty much runnin it vanilla still! (If you can believe that!?!?!?)
Had to put StartAllBack and QTTabBar back on though! I was tryin to run it clean for two days but I couldn't take it anymore! :wink:
