Microsoft Releases Windows 11 Cumulative Updates KB5018418 and KB5018427

Microsoft has released new cumulative updates for Windows 11 devices, and this time, both versions 21H2 and 22H2 are getting the patches.

Because of the rollout takes place on Patch Tuesday, the main objective on cumulative updates KB5018418 and KB5018427 is fixing security improvements.

The changelogs, however, are rather vague, and Microsoft doesn’t offer too many details in regards to what non-security bugs the brand new updates are supposed to resolve.

The next two updates are actually readily available for Windows 11 devices:

Windows 11, version 21H2: KB5018418 (OS Build 22000.1098)
Windows 11, version 22H2: KB5018427 (OS Build 22621.674)

The 22H2 update comes with two known issues, both of which have already been acknowledged by Microsoft soon after the rollout from the new Windows 11 feature update started last month.

One of them concerns using provisioning packages on Windows 11 version 22.

“Windows might simply be partially configured, and the From Box Experience may not finish or might restart unexpectedly. Provisioning packages are .PPKG files that are used to help configure new devices to be used on business or school networks. Provisioning packages that are applied during initial setup are likely to be influenced by this issue. For more information on provisioning packages, please visit Provisioning packages for Windows,” Microsoft explains.

Then, the software giant explains that Windows 11 version 22H2 users could also struggle to copy large files.

“Copying large multiple gigabyte (GB) files usually takes more than expected to finish on Windows 11, version 22H2. You’re more prone to experience this problem copying files to Windows 11, version 22H2 from a network share via Server Message Block (SMB) but local file copy might also be affected. Windows devices used by consumers within their home or small offices are not likely to be affected by this issue,” Microsoft says.

The brand new updates are actually available on Windows Update and may also be downloaded from the Microsoft Update Catalog or WSUS.
