Windows 10 and Windows 11 have been plugged in since the November patch day failurewhich can lead to programs no longer being updated or repaired. Microsoft has now made a patch available for Windows 11, which is initially being tested with the insiders.
Update KB5007262 raises the build version to 22000.348 and will be distributed to Windows 11 Insiders in the Beta and Release Preview channels. It contains a correction for the error that an update or a repair of programs that were packaged with the Microsoft Installer (file extension .msi) fails. The affected programs – including Kaspersky security software – no longer start and have to be reinstalled.
Until the patch is also made available for Windows 10 or for the general public, reinstalling the striking program remains the only workaround.
