Windows 11 Build 22000.194 (KB5005635) is out with improvements

Windows 11 Build 22000.194 update

Windows 11 Build 22000.194 is available for testers in the
Windows Insider program and it is yet another minor update.
Like the previous cumulative updates, today’s patch also
focuses on bug fixes and quality improvements, and we’re not
getting any new features, but testers will now have access to
three new app updates.

The patch is simply called “2021-09 Cumulative Update for
Windows 11 for x64-based Systems (KB5005635)” and it’s
officially available for beta testers. However, this update is
also available for unsupported devices in the Dev Channel and
it can be downloaded straight from the Windows Update.

Windows 11 KB5005635 is supposed to address the remaining bugs
in the operating system ahead of the scheduled October 5
rollout. This update comes with various bug fixes and one
important change: KB5005635 or newer requires TPM 2.0 in
virtual machines likes Hyper-V manager and VMWare as well.

New improvements in Windows 11 Build 22000.194 (KB5005635)

Windows 11 Build 22000.194 comes with the following bug fixes:

  • Microsoft has addressed a bug that could result in
    artifacts around the app windows and dialogs when you enable
    and disable a high-contrast theme. This bug affects the UI of
    the minimize/maximize/close buttons, but it can be fixed in
    some cases if you restart your device.
  • Microsoft has fixed Blue Screen of Death errors on modern
    standby-enabled PCs.
  • Microsoft has fixed an issue that causes PowerShell to
    create an infinite number of child directories. This bug was
    spotted when testers entered the PowerShell Move-Item command.

Windows 11 now requires TPM for everyone

After today’s cumulative update, you can no longer install
Windows 11 in virtual machines without TPM 2.0. Previously,
Microsoft allowed users to install the new operating system in
virtual machines failing to meet the minimum hardware
requirements. That’s going to change after this preview update.

On Twitter, Microsoft confirmed updated that TPM 2.0 is now a
requirement for virtual machines. TPM 2.0 is apparently going
to be a mandatory requirement for everyone when Windows 11
ships on October 5 to consumers.

VMs currently not using TPM won’t get the new cumulative
updates. If you use Hyper-V, you can switch to Generation 2 VM
and enable the TPM module. For those using VMWare, they need to
enable encryption (requires free disk space) and then add the
TPM 2.0 module from the VMWare settings.

Known issues in Build 22000.194

Windows 11 Build 22000.194 comes with these known issues:

  1. Windows 11’s widgets board is still not working for
    everyone. In some configrations, users may not see updates
    within the widgets panel and they need to can sign out and then
    sign back in to address the problem.
  2. For those with multiple monitors, the Windows widgets could
    appear in the wrong size, but this can be fixed when you launch
    the widgets on your actual PC display.
  3. If Windows Search stops working for you, restart the
    “Windows Explorer” process using the Task Manager and open the
    search panel again. That’s because the search panel might
    appear black on some PCs.
  4. The taskbar cannot detect texts when you enter in Search
    from Start or the Taskbar. To fix this bug, open Windows Run
    (WIN) and close the dialog

As always, if you notice a new critical bug in the update, you
can always uninstall the update and reinstall Windows 10. If
you want to remove this particular patch, head to Settings >
Windows Update > Control Panel, and select the patch.

Public rollout and new app updates

As you’re probably aware, Windows 11 21H2 is a big update with
a new design and strict hardware requirements. On the other
hand, Windows 10 is getting version 21H2, but it’s another
minor update that is simply based on the enablement package and
it can be installed in less than five minutes.

Microsoft is currently planning to release the feature upgrade
on October 5, but it won’t be offered to most users on day one.

In addition to today’s cumulative update, Microsoft has also
started rolling out a new
Snipping Tool, Calculator, and Clock app with Focus
Sessions/Spotify integration.
