Windows 11 servicing stack update - 22621.3073 and 22631.3073​

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​

Applies toSymptomWorkaround
All usersWindows devices using more than one (1) monitor might experience issues with desktop icons moving unexpectedly between monitors or other icon alignment issues when attempting to use Copilot in Windows (in preview).This issue is addressed on the service-side for Windows 11, versions 22H2 and 23H2 on devices with updates released January 9, 2024, or later.

Note Managed devices in your environment that have been used or are currently being used in a multimonitor configuration will not yet have Copilot for Windows available.

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.

Ms why f.... up with windows explorer at win11?? why doesn't leave the win10 explorer(That don't has any issues) at windows11 to?
I think it's mostly because they want to move all parts of Windows to more modern UI designs, better dark mode support, better high-dpi support, and so on and I assume it's easier for them to do that with App-SDK and WinUI 3. So, inevitably, certain features get dropped and/or broken along the way and more computing power is needed to make it run as well as the old code. Since the old versions are still in the OS, I wish they had provided a menu to let the user choose which Explorer version they want to use, at least until the bugs are worked out and there's feature parity, but they've never done that before, so no reason to expect that kind of thoughtfulness now.

Is anyone getting these stupid errors?

It is written on the internet that it was seen in some people after an update in December, but I could not find a solution.
I tried clean installation, reset etc. It gives the same error.

DeviceSetupManager Errors (Event IDs 131, 200, 201 & 202)

Warning 200 says: "A connection to the Windows Update service could not be established."
Warning 201 says: "A connection to the Windows Metadata and Internet Services (WMIS) could not be established."
Warning 202 says: "The Network List Manager reports no connectivity to the internet."
Error 131 says: "Metadata staging failed, result=0x80072EFE for container '{9D4B63A4-C1E9-5EDF-9B1D-FCDB8ED9F48C}'"

Should I care? Does it affect performance? I wanted to ask because I didn't know :/ Thank you

There is no problem in the security and maintenance tab

Unfortunately, I don't DO cloud. So I can't comment on that.

But if Event Viewer is complaining about internet connectivity... I would start there.

Search the registry for... {9D4B63A4-C1E9-5EDF-9B1D-FCDB8ED9F48C}
That might give a clue.

I don't have that CLSID number in my registry.
I can't find that CLSID number on Google, either.


...I dunno then. :(

Is anyone getting these stupid errors?

It is written on the internet that it was seen in some people after an update in December, but I could not find a solution.
I tried clean installation, reset etc. It gives the same error.

DeviceSetupManager Errors (Event IDs 131, 200, 201 & 202)

Warning 200 says: "A connection to the Windows Update service could not be established."
Warning 201 says: "A connection to the Windows Metadata and Internet Services (WMIS) could not be established."
Warning 202 says: "The Network List Manager reports no connectivity to the internet."

I'm getting Device Set Up Manger errors as well. It has been going on for a couple of months. I did manage to eliminate some by removing/uninstalling a printer. I did go through the registry trying to figure it out, but with my limited experience I was only able to identify the printer. Through Device Manger I made sure all derivers were UpToDate. So far it hasn't affected anything, performance etc., but it is annoying knowing the errors are there.

Just out of curiosity I looked in the event manager, and sure enough I was getting these same errors on Windows 10 Pro and 11 Pro.

It seems "The problem has to do with Metadata Staging servers that Microsoft operates and which are down since November and which a recent Windows Update now has every updated Windows 10 and Windows 11 machine pointing to. They contact those servers to get device drivers and high-res device icons."

The work around to stop the errors (but not fix the problem as only MS can fix it) is to go to Settings/System/About/Advanced system settings/Hardware/ and change Device Installation Settings to "No (your device might not work as expected)" and save changes.

This will stop your machine from looking to MS for new device drivers every time you boot up.

It is discussed Here at some length as well as in many other threads and at feedback hub.

I just checked, and mine was already set to... "NO".
No wonder I wasn't getting those errors.

Nice post. :-)

Just out of curiosity I looked in the event manager, and sure enough I was getting these same errors on Windows 10 Pro and 11 Pro.

It seems "The problem has to do with Metadata Staging servers that Microsoft operates and which are down since November and which a recent Windows Update now has every updated Windows 10 and Windows 11 machine pointing to. They contact those servers to get device drivers and high-res device icons."

The work around to stop the errors (but not fix the problem as only MS can fix it) is to go to Settings/System/About/Advanced system settings/Hardware/ and change Device Installation Settings to "No (your device might not work as expected) and save changes.

This will stop your machine from looking to MS for new device drivers every time you boot up.

It is discussed Here at some length as well as in many other threads and at feedback hub.

I also read those articles. Unfortunately, they don't work. I think the problem is caused by Microsoft. It doesn't matter if device installation is turned on or off. I think this problem will be solved with the update. As long as it does not affect performance and does not trigger another problem

Well, I have that set to NO, and I don't get those Event Viewer errors.
I also used the following tutorial (Option #2), to block driver updates...

I'm getting Device Set Up Manger errors as well. It has been going on for a couple of months. I did manage to eliminate some by removing/uninstalling a printer. I did go through the registry trying to figure it out, but with my limited experience I was only able to identify the printer. Through Device Manger I made sure all derivers were UpToDate. So far it hasn't affected anything, performance etc., but it is annoying knowing the errors are there.

I don't use a printer. Only the standard standing Microsoft xps printer stands. Should I remove it? Will there be another problem if I remove it?

It's not the xps printer. I removed it and they were still there. It was a HP fax driver causing some of my errors. While those went away, I'm still receiving others. If I change Devise Installation settings to no, the errors go away. Since I have it answered Yes I'm still getting "DeviceSetupManager" and "Windows Metadata" errors.

When I changed it to no, I was still getting the errors. However, I think changing it to no will be a temporary solution as it will prevent the installation of updated drivers if there are any.

I'm getting somekind of explorer.exe error during shutdown after this update. It goes by pretty fast so i've not had enough time to read it properly. Something about "memory could not be read" or something like that. It has happened 2 out of 3 times now when i shutdown my pc.
@Zinoviev I was receiving this error too during shutdown, and it's definitely related to this update.

20240130_031258.jpg

I've heard it has been affecting people with Xbox controllers for PC. I have a wired one I use, so it's not just wireless ones.

I don't by default install preview updates, but because I was backing up my computer at the time, decided too.

I wasn't sure at the time what was causing the error, so I clean installed the OS, but this time without the preview update. It's been fine since.

I get those network errors soon after start up. I put it down to low energy settings which effectively turn off the network connection when the computer is not in use. It takes a while to restart the network connection, and windows seems to immediately look for updates and on-line connections as soon as the device is turned on. Usually the network connections are set soon after, and the windows updates/start ups run then.

I prefer not to turn off the low energy settings, so I put up with the messages in event viewer.
