Insider Windows 11 Insider Preview Dev Build 22449 (RS_PRERELEASE) - Sept. 2


  • Staff
UPDATE 9/9: Windows 11 Insider Preview Dev Build 22454 (RS_PRERELEASE) - Sept. 9

UPDATE 7:10PM PDT: Recently, Windows Insiders in both the Dev and Beta Channels began reporting that Start and Taskbar were unresponsive and Settings and other areas of the OS wouldn’t load. We quickly discovered an issue with a server-side deployment that went out to Insiders and canceled that deployment. If you were impacted by this issue, you can use the following steps to get back into a working state on your PC.
  • Step 1: Use CTRL-ALT-DEL and choose to open Task Manager.
  • Step 2: Choose “More details” at the bottom of Task Manager to expand Task Manager.
  • Step 3: Go to “File” and choose “Run new task”.
  • Step 4: Type “cmd” in the “Open” field.
  • Step 5: Paste the following: reg delete HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\IrisService /f && shutdown -r -t 0
  • Step 6: Hit enter, and then your PC should reboot. After rebooting, everything should be back to normal.

Hello Windows Insiders, today we are releasing Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 22449 to the Dev Channel.

You may notice that this build number is higher than the Windows 11 preview builds you’ve been receiving. That’s because we’re moving the Dev Channel back to receiving builds from our active development branch (RS_PRERELEASE). This means the builds released to the Dev Channel no longer match the Windows 11 experience that will be released to customers on October 5th.

These builds are from the earliest stage in a new development cycle with the latest work-in-progress code from our engineers. These aren’t always stable builds, and sometimes you will see issues that block key activities or require workarounds while flighting in the Dev Channel. It is important to make sure you read the known issues listed in our blog posts as we document many of these issues with each flight. Because of being at the earliest stage of a new development cycle, you won’t see new features or major changes in these builds right away. These builds are also not matched to a specific release. New features and OS improvements from these builds could show up in future Windows releases when they’re ready, and we may deliver them as full OS updates or servicing releases.

For those of you who are new to the Windows Insider Program and flighting of OS updates – check out this article for how flighting works and what to expect in each of our channels.


What’s new in Build 22449


SMB compression behavior change


We first introduced SMB compression in Windows Server 2022 & Windows 11. SMB compression allows an administrator, user, or application to request compression of files as they transfer over the network. This removes the need to first deflate a file manually with an application, copy it, then inflate on the destination PC. Compressed files will consume less network bandwidth and take less time to transfer, at the cost of slightly increased CPU usage during transfers.

Based on testing and analysis, we have changed the default behavior of compression. Previously, the SMB compression decision algorithm would attempt to compress the first 524,288,000 bytes (500MiB) of a file during transfer and track that at least 104,857,600 bytes (100MiB) compressed within that 500-MB range. If fewer than 100 MiB were compressible, SMB compression stopped trying to compress the rest of the file. If at least 100 MiB compressed, SMB compression attempted to compress the rest of the file. This meant that very large files with compressible data – for instance, a multi-gigabyte virtual machine disk – were likely to compress but a relatively small file – even a very compressible one – would not compress.

Starting in Build 22449, we will no longer use this decision algorithm by default. Instead, if compression is requested, we will always attempt to compress. If you wish to modify this new behavior to return to a decision algorithm, please see this article: Understanding and controlling compression behaviors.

Please use the Feedback Hub to give feedback or report issues with SMB compression, using the Files, Folders, and Online Storage > File Sharing category.

Changes and Improvements

Known issues


[General]
[Start]
  • In some cases, you might be unable to enter text when using Search from Start or the Taskbar. If you experience the issue, press WIN + R on the keyboard to launch the Run dialog box, then close it.
  • System and Windows Terminal is missing when right-clicking on the Start button (WIN + X).
[Taskbar]
  • The Taskbar will sometimes flicker when switching input methods.
[Search]
  • After clicking the Search icon on the Taskbar, the Search panel may not open. If this occurs, restart the “Windows Explorer” process, and open the search panel again.
  • Search panel might appear as black and not display any content below the search box.
[File Explorer]
  • If you right click files in OneDrive locations in File Explorer, the context menu will unexpectedly dismiss when you hover over entries that open sub-menus, such as “Open with”.
[Widgets]
  • The widgets board may appear empty. To work around the issue, you can sign out and then sign back in again.
  • Widgets may be displayed in the wrong size on external monitors. If you encounter this, you can launch the widgets via touch or WIN + W shortcut on your actual PC display first and then launch on your secondary monitors.
[Windows Sandbox]
  • We’re investigating an issue in which Windows Sandbox may not launch for some Insiders after upgrading to this build.
[Microsoft Store]
  • We continue to work to improve search relevance in the Store.
[Localization]
  • There is an issue where some Insiders may be some missing translations from their user experience for a small subset of languages running the latest Insider Preview builds. To confirm if you have been impacted, please visit this Answers forum post and follow the steps for remediation.

Reminder on Insider Participation & Settings


In our June 24th blog post, we announced that all Windows Insiders who had already been installing builds from the Dev Channel on their PCs up through June 24, 2021, would be allowed to continue installing Windows 11 Insider Preview builds even if their PC did not meet the minimum hardware requirements, with limited exceptions in some cases.

In support of the Windows 11 hardware requirements, the minimum requirement for previewing Window 11 builds in our Windows Insider Program was set to match the overall requirements for Windows 11, with the exception for TPM 2.0 and CPU family/model – the yellow column in the chart below. These PCs will continue to receive Insider Preview builds normally depending on which channel they have opted their PC into.


Chart outlining Windows 11 hardware requirements in the Dev Channel.
Chart outlining Windows 11 hardware requirements in the Dev Channel.

There were a set of PCs, already running preview builds in the Dev Channel up through June 24, 2021, that fell below the requirements stated above, and failed hardware requirements beyond TPM 2.0 and CPU family. Those PCs, represented in the red column in the graph above, had a limited exception to preview Windows 11 builds until general availability, and would then need to take action to go back to Windows 10 and would not receive future Windows 11 preview builds. Now that we are moving Dev Channel forward with newer Windows 11 builds than what will be released to customers on October 5th, those PCs have been opted out of flighting and likely see the message below in the Windows Insider Program settings page. However, they will still receive Windows 11 Cumulative Updates leading up to general availability.

Notice on Windows Insider Program settings page on PCs that were given an exception to install Windows 11 previews on June 24th.

For me I discovered that Windows 11 hates the Intel Rapid Storage Technology Driver.
I was unable to upgrade from any install that had this driver installed. Even if I rolled back to the MS driver.
And if I try to replace the standard MS AHCI Sata driver on a clean 11 install it fails to complete the reboot.

So for me all my troubles were caused by the Intel Rapid Storage Technology Driver.

Working fine for me in all Windows 11 builds since 22000.51 as a insider on the Dev and Beta channels:

windows 10 & 11
1.Yes
2. AHCI
3. No, through windows update
4. No tools, Windows security. Very few apps, no "enhancers" or snake oil apps.
5. Windows update installs, prompts for restart, I get the new ring (in place of circle of dots) for about 3 minutes or so, then Black screen with error, it restarts and rolls back to .168

I also tried deleting windows bt folder and letting it download again, same result.

Yes, all of the above.

I switched to Beta channel, and updated to .176 without issue. I now have the option to switch to Dev or Release Preview. I'm undecided at this point, but I would like to figure out what the issue is.

Thank you to you both.
Did you say your computer is compliant with MS new standards? If so, it would be interesting to back-up your computer and try again with DEV channel just to see what happens. Be sure you back-up first so you can restore to Beta version. Would like to know if you try this of your results.

Still no luck. After getting rid of the oxC1900101 error, I have been plagued with the "driver PNP watchdog" failure and the automatic rollback to the previous version. I have tried a dozen different things with nothing helping. I am not sure how I am going to get around this failure. And yes, I have tried whatever you are going to suggest, heh. (I did a lot of Googling the problem).
I wonder if I would be able to try the next update without having the latest installed?

Windows 11 Pro build 10.0.25284.1000 (Dev Channel)
This issue is a weird one. Seems something is off with latest update or something is off with latest hardware configurations.

Either it is an Intel issue related to iGPU or Virtualization (which does not surprise me at all) or other Intel agressive optimizations or it is an Asus BIOS/UEFI issue.

I suspect this because I think I see a common thread here. Same or similar issues were going on during early Windows 10 development too. Certain machines were impossible to upgrade.

@gmemore and @John Pombrio try with disabling Virtualization support in BIOS.

UPDATE: Also try the 3 latest Intel Chipset and Intel Graphics drivers, starting from he oldest and try to upgrade Windows after that. Reasoning: I had a lot of issues on my laptop with certain drivers on Windows 10 and while Virtualization support was enabled. Although I have an AMD system this issue may be related. Took me tens of tries before I figured out which combination works.

Right now Ubuntu 22.10 with ZFS filesystem.
Got back on the dev channel with this install. Not much time for new features - I'm expecting only bug fixes for a month.

Working fine for me in all Windows 11 builds since 22000.51 as a insider on the Dev and Beta channels:

Same here. I have two SSD in RAID 0 with RST, no issues.

Still no luck. After getting rid of the oxC1900101 error, I have been plagued with the "driver PNP watchdog" failure and the automatic rollback to the previous version. ...
That is interesting to me. When the update fails, I get the black screen Watchdog error. It rolls back and reboots itself with .168. If I immediately go to Windows Update, it will say "the last update failed error code 0xc1900101" and the "Retry" option shows. 0xc1900101 being listed as some type of driver error, I presumed they were one in the same in this case...

Another thing I noticed is, after the update fails and rolls back, if I then go immediately to restart (instead of going to Updates), the options include "Update and restart" and "Update and shut down". If I choose either of these, nothing updates, but it does a normal restart.
But, if I go do anything else for a minute or two and then go to restart those update options are no longer there, just normal shutdown menu
Did you say your computer is compliant with MS new standards? If so, it would be interesting to back-up your computer and try again with DEV channel just to see what happens. Be sure you back-up first so you can restore to Beta version. Would like to know if you try this of your results.
Yes, a new Z590 ASUS Prime board and 10600k . The latest BIOS specifically states Windows 11 compatibility, though I had no issues with any Windows 11 build prior to this BIOS update.
I'm probably going to do what you suggest out of curiosity, maybe later today. This machine is my daily driver (multi-boot Windows 10Pro, Windows 11Pro) so when the official release drops I'll no doubt move my insider stuff to Hyper-V. I will keep you posted. Thanks for your help.

I had that early on but was corrected some where along the line. Originally was related to video driver or monitor driver. Sorry can’t be more specific.

And yet it does on .176. I noticed that too on Dev build. Also, on Dev build in one screen it recognizes my keyboard as solar Logitech but when I go to check solar status, it reports there is no solar keyboard. On .176, it recognizes it fully.

I I'm not sure but I think the last Dev build update switched my laptop back to the Home version. The laptop was upgraded from Home to Pro through the Store. I just ran Winver and found out It was back on Home. I had to use the generic Pro key to switch back to Pro again. If anyone upgrade from Home to Pro it might pay to check if your still on Pro.

Right now Ubuntu 22.10 with ZFS filesystem.
Hi folks
Running fine as a VM (Host system is MBR , no TPM, NO UEFI) but created VM with TPM emulater, Vcpu, UEFI sec boot, QXL virtual video driver -- good "Poodlefaked" system !!!.

Boots perfectly -- no problem with taskbar / start menu or other probs reported in the Forums. -- Did 2 VM's -- one upgraded from a W10 VM and the other from the previous W11 version. As others have noted Watermark is back again. I installed BTW as an update from the iso made from UUPDUMP. Run the setup.exe from WITHIN your VM. Note also the virtio network card now seems to work OK again !!.

View attachment 7031

Now to try on a REAL HOST-- I'll attempt to create a Win2GO via RUFUS first and do a clean install. If that fails I'll "Force it" via doing a Virtual to Physical conversion from this VM - for missing drivers will use those from the .168 W11 install which should fix that problem and then re-create the boot loader -- macrium fix boot problems is also a good way to test.

So far running nicely -- no errors to report apart from slight degradtion compared with using physical GPU . I have to use QXL Virtual video driver to get the install to finish correctly -- however that's not a Windows poblem !!!! and the VM still runs nicely.

Setting the Virtual Video to QXL seems to pass the Video test !! although passthru real GPU would be better if W11 accepts it.

View attachment 7039


I don't have too much hope installing direct on a "Real system" as I don't have all the required hardware - but I'll try with the "Convert from VM to Physical" - tomorrow --time for some Beer now.

For those who can't get the thing to install / or have loads of defects -- the lifetime of this build isd quite short so I wouldn't spend too much time on it if you can't install. Expiry is in about 6 - 8 weeks only !!!.


Cheers

Have you tried using the regedit bypass to install on what Microsoft calls an "obsolete" computer? Works every time for me.

Anyone started having printing issues with this build? After a while my printer shows error status. I run the troubleshooter and printing restarts soon after the spooler service element starts to run. Seems that the print spooler is dying after a while. Other than reinstalling the drivers etc. not sure what else to do. I have a Canon TS8352

Other than reinstalling the drivers etc. not sure what else to do. I have a Canon TS8352
Did you try finding out if there is newer native drivers?
I have an old Canon LBP 2600. Drivers installed and printing works with no issue yet.

Have you tried using the regedit bypass to install on what Microsoft calls an "obsolete" computer? Works every time for me.

Hi there
problem with that is you need to have a Windows system in the first place to do the registry hack. I'm creating the W11 Virtual machine on a Linux Host !!!.

If I can use the Virtual Hardware" in a VM that complies with W11 requirements II always prefer that than messing about with registry hacks.

Cheers

That is not a problem. Simply edit the registry BEFORE installing Windows 11. Mount the install.wim file on your install media (ISO, USB), edit registry in it, save changes. Done. Now install Windows from modified install media.
