Microsoft has released Windows 10, version 21H2 Build 19044.1319 (KB5006738) at the version preview channel. The new update includes all changes from Build 19044.1319 as well as a fix for a known issue that prevented the successful installation of printers. You can read the full official changelog below.
- We fixed an issue that prevented you from accessing the pre-provisioning page during the out-of-the-box experience (OOBE). This issue occurs when the credentials page for signing in to Azure Active Directory is displayed and you press the Windows key five times.
- We have added a feature that facilitates certain data transfers between browsers.
- We fixed an issue with assigned access kiosks that are configured with Microsoft Edge as a kiosk app. Sometimes these kiosks may not restart Microsoft Edge if users close the browser window.
- We fixed an issue where using App-V would intermittently cause black screens to appear when logging into the credentials page.
- We fixed an issue that could prevent the display of closed captions for some video apps and video streaming sites.
- We fixed an issue that prevented Windows 10 Virtual Private Network (VPN) users from connecting to Windows Server 2019 Routing and Remote Access Service (RRAS) servers.
- We fixed an issue that prevented Software-Defined Networking (SDN) virtual machines from working when you configure Generic Routing Encapsulation (GRE) VPN bandwidth throttling.
- We fixed a primary refresh token (PRT) update issue that occurs when VPN users sign in using Windows Hello for Business when the VPN connection is offline. Users receive unexpected authentication prompts for online resources configured for User Logon Frequency (SIF) in Azure Active Directory-Conditional Access.
- We fixed an issue that required Windows to perform a BitLocker recovery after a maintenance update.
- We fixed an issue that could cause Kerberos.dll to stop working within the Local Security Authority Subsystem (LSASS) service. This occurs when LSASS is processing concurrent User-to-User (U2U) User-to-User (S4U) service requests for the same client user.
- We fixed an issue in code integrity that could cause a memory leak.
- We’ve improved Microsoft Defender for Endpoint’s ability to identify and intercept ransomware and advanced attacks.
- We fixed an issue in OOBE that could cause Windows AutoPilot provisioning to fail.
- We fixed an issue that prevented Kana input mode users from inserting a question mark (?) Using the Shift-0 key combination.
- We fixed an issue that sometimes caused the lock screen to appear black if you enable slideshow.
- We fixed a reliability issue with LogonUI.exe, which affects the rendering of network status text on the credentials screen.
- We fixed an issue that caused Server Message Block (SMB) request directory requests to fail when the buffer size is large.
- We fixed a memory leak issue in lsass.exe on domain controllers in the forest root domain which occurs when you have multiple forests and multiple domains in each forest. SID-Name mapping functions leak memory when a request comes from another domain in the forest and crosses forest boundaries.
- We fixed an issue with the Virtual Machine (VM) Load Balancing feature, which ignores a site’s fault domain.
