  • This update addresses an issue that affects Protected Process Light (PPL) protections. You can bypass them.
  • This update addresses an issue that affects Bluetooth Advanced Audio Distribution Profile (A2DP) hardware offload. A stop error occurs on PCs that support it.
  • This update addresses an issue that affects the Distributed Transaction Coordinator (DTC). A memory leak occurs when it retrieves mappings.
  • This update addresses an issue that affects Windows Local Administrator Password Solution (LAPS). Its Post Authentication Actions (PAA) do not occur at the end of the grace period. Instead, they occur at restart.
  • This update addresses an issue that affects the Resilient File System (ReFS). A high load might make the system unresponsive. Also, signing in might be slow.
If you installed earlier updates, only the new updates contained in this package will be downloaded and installed on your device.

Windows 11 servicing stack update - 22621.3522 and 22631.3522​

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 usersAfter installing this update, you might be unable to change your user account profile picture.

When attempting to change a profile picture by selecting the button Start> Settings> Accounts > Your info, and then selecting Choose a file, you might receive an error message with error code 0x80070520.
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 5036980.

For a list of the files that are provided in the servicing stack update, download the file information for the SSU - versions 22621.3522 and 22631.3522.

Everything... is in the tutorials section, somewhere.
I believe @Try3 has one of the easiest ways to find things in the tutorials section. :-)

The in-place upgrade of Windows 11 Pro worked. The update that gave me issues installed fine after that. Thanks for the assistance.

You never know where copilot icon will be tomorrow or after restart. In system tray or in boring place - middle taskbar.
You don't have control about it. Now, mine is in system tray.

Run this command from an elevated command prompt...

Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth



Then... if Windows Update still doesn't work...

An In-Place Upgrade "compares" what is installed on the computer, with the Windows ISO image.
Then, it overwrites any corrupted Windows files, with clean copies from the ISO image.
This is how it "repairs" Windows while allowing you to keep your programs and personal files.

Thank you for your reply to my thread earlier.

I ran the cmd, but it didn't work, unfortunately. My Windows update still won't install.

Should I try performing this? I don't want to lose any files.

Thanks in advance! :-)

Yes... just follow the directions in the tutorial. You won't lose any programs or files if you follow the directions.
Do Option #2, using the ISO image (steps 1, 2, 4, 6... and on to the end)
On my computer, it takes about 40 minutes to create the ISO and to do the In-Place Upgrade. :-)

If the In-Place upgrade doesn't work... then you're down to this...
With a clean install, you will lose programs and files.

Well, after all this time I have gotten tired of typing the same thing... so I put it in a text file for copy/pasta...




General steps for fixing Windows problems.

Whenever Windows is acting weird... run these commands...

Open a command prompt as Admin, and run... sfc /scannow <----- System File Checker

IF... SFC finds any errors (fixed or not fixed), run this command next... Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth


Then... if Windows still isn't working properly...

An In-Place Upgrade "compares" what is installed on the computer, with the Windows ISO image.
Then, it overwrites any corrupted Windows files, with clean copies from the ISO image.
This is how it "repairs" Windows while allowing you to keep your programs and personal files.






If the In-Place upgrade doesn't work... then you're down to this...

Hey guys since this update I have this wierd issue

Right click in any component of the Windows Taskbar takes ages to load, Notifications can take up to 3mins, context menus of open apps just dont open or not appear at all, even the right click Menu from the Start takes ages aswell.

SFC and DISM Scanhealth shown no issues.

There are nothing consuming CPU or trashing disk checked in both Taskmanager/System Informaner/Performance Monitor for good measure...

edit: The 2nd restart fixed it, then I did another restart and its back again...............

Well, after all this time I have gotten tired of typing the same thing... so I put it in a text file for copy/pasta...




General steps for fixing Windows problems.

Whenever Windows is acting weird... run these commands...

Open a command prompt as Admin, and run... sfc /scannow <----- System File Checker

IF... SFC finds any errors (fixed or not fixed), run this command next... Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth


Then... if Windows still isn't working properly...

An In-Place Upgrade "compares" what is installed on the computer, with the Windows ISO image.
Then, it overwrites any corrupted Windows files, with clean copies from the ISO image.
This is how it "repairs" Windows while allowing you to keep your programs and personal files.






If the In-Place upgrade doesn't work... then you're down to this...

You should always create a system image backup first to be extra safe if you do try it. :alien:

I use it in regular Windows.
Only problem I ever had was with the vivetool ID # that blocked File Explorer tabs.
But that was Microsoft that purposely broke that one.


And...

Any time you use any tweaks, you risk... breaking things.
You need to be prepared for that, with something like... backup software.
