Hello Windows Insiders, today we are releasing 21H2 Build 19044.1263 (KB5005611) to the Release Preview Channel. This update will be offered automatically for Windows Insiders already on Windows 10, version 21H2 in the Release Preview Channel.

For Insiders not yet on Windows 10, version 21H2 – this update is offered via our “seeker” experience in Windows Update and ONLY to Insiders who were moved from the Beta Channel to the Release Preview Channel because their PC did not meet the hardware requirements for Windows 11. Not everyone in Release Preview will be offered this update for Windows 10 just yet. Insiders who are offered this update will need to go to Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update and choose to download and install Windows 10, version 21H2.

This update includes the following improvements:

  • We fixed an issue that changes the device’s current UI language. This occurs during an unattended out-of-box experience (OOBE) language pack installation scenario on a desktop.
  • We fixed an issue that causes the system time to be incorrect by one hour after a daylight saving time (DST) change.
  • We fixed an issue that causes the Server Manager application to disappear after you use it to remove Hyper-V features on Windows Server 2022.
  • We fixed an issue with parsing time formats in event logs. This issue occurs when you exclude milliseconds.
  • We fixed an issue that causes the DnsCache service to increase the CPU usage to 100% utilization. As a result, the device stops responding.
  • We provided administrators the option to reset the zoom to the default for HTML dialogs in Microsoft Edge Internet Explorer mode.
  • We fixed an issue that stops calls to the Windows Image Acquisition (WIA) minidriver for Windows Portable Devices (WPD) devices that you access using WIAMgr.
  • We fixed an issue that causes applications, such as Microsoft Outlook, to suddenly stop responding during normal use. This occurs if the application created and removed UI elements on a background thread that is no longer receiving messages.
  • We fixed an issue with the Microsoft Outlook Add-in that prevents you from providing input after you select Reply.
  • We fixed an issue that fails to keep the NumLock state after a Fast Startup restart.
  • We fixed an issue with sharing a screen using Microsoft Teams. Protected content, such as a digital rights management (DRM) email, appears black for the presenter, but appears transparent for everyone else.
  • We fixed an issue that might prevent drawing on the screen using Windows Context::UpdateRgnFromRects from working.
  • We fixed an issue that might cause distortion in the audio that Cortana and other voice assistants capture.
  • We removed the limitation of 25 maximum Traffic Selectors in the Windows native Internet Key Exchange (IKE) client and server.
  • We fixed an issue that fails to display the smart card PIN dialog when you are connected to a virtual private network (VPN). This issue occurs after upgrading to Windows 10, version 2004.
  • We fixed an issue that causes a memory leak in lsass.exe when the pTokenPrivileges buffer is not released.
  • We fixed an issue with a non-paged pool (NPP) leak from the UxSF pool tag. This leak occurs when lsass.exe stops processing asynchronous Security Support Provider Interface (SSPI) calls.
  • We fixed an issue that prevents the xhunter1.sys driver from loading. As a result, some games cannot run when you enable Hypervisor-Protected Code Integrity (HVCI).
  • We fixed an issue that causes Windows to stop working if you deploy a Code Integrity policy without user mode rules.
  • We improved the performance of MsSense.exe in environments with User Datagram Protocol (UDP) applications that require high amounts of bandwidth.
  • We fixed an input method editor (IME) mode instability in the RemoteApp scenario. You must install this update on the Remote Desktop server and Remote Desktop client.
  • We fixed an issue that causes blurry News and interests icons when you use certain screen resolutions.
  • We fixed a paged pool memory leak of the registry keys for the Virtual Desktop ID that occurs in explorer.exe.
  • We fixed an issue that causes LogonUI.exe to stop working because Direct Manipulation fails to start.
  • We fixed an issue that causes News and interests to appear in the context menu even when you have disabled it on a device.
  • We fixed an issue that causes the configuration for multiple artifact DB support across datacenters to fail for Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) artifacts.
  • We fixed an issue that causes the LsaLookupSids() function to fail. This occurs when there are security identifiers (SID) for users that no longer exist in a group that contains cross-domain trusted users.
  • We fixed an issue that fails to apply the post_logout_redirect_uri= parameter when you use an External Claims Provider.
  • We fixed an issue with a deadlock in the WebDav redirector that occurs when it attempts to read a file from the local TfsStore. As a result, the system stops responding.
  • We fixed an issue that causes a stop error after a restart.
  • We fixed an issue with Enterprise Mode Site List redirection from Internet Explorer 11 to Microsoft Edge. In certain circumstances, the redirection opens a site in multiple tabs in Microsoft Edge.
  • We removed a hyperlink that might cause the Input app to stop working when you first enter fuzzy pinyin content.
  • We fixed an activation issue for the Input application.
  • We fixed an issue that causes apps to lose focus when the taskbar is not at the bottom of the screen.
  • We fixed an issue that always reports the update build revision (UBR) as zero (0) on a device during enrollment to mobile device management (MDM) service.
  • We fixed an issue with PropertyGet in JScript9.dll.
  • We implemented a Group Policy for the registry key below:
    • Key: HKLMSoftwarePoliciesMicrosoftWindows NTPrintersPointAndPrint
    • Value: RestrictDriverInstallationToAdministrators

To check and see if you’re running Windows 10, version 21H2, just type “winver” into the Windows search box on the Taskbar. It should show as “Version 21H2”.

Players of Monster Legends can take advantage of a new feature to grow their monster collection and gain other rewards by coming back to the game daily.

Look for the new Blooming Tree in the game’s shop, then purchase it to activate the Bloom and get your instant gems reward. Then return the next day to collect your daily dose of gems, and keep coming back until the last day of blooming. Gems Bloom is active for 30 days after the purchase.

Also, players can now participate in the last event of the season: the Bounty Hunt. From Aug. 12 to Aug. 19, flip tiles to find the fugitive monster and defeat it. The more points you get in this event, the more leagues you will climb. Great rewards await players, especially at higher leagues: the new monster Goliathess is one of them.

Exchange Online Basic authentication is going away: What you need to know

Effective October 1, 2022, you will no longer be able to use Basic authentication to connect to Microsoft Exchange Online. If your organization uses server-side synchronization or the deprecated Dynamics 365 Email Router, you should find out now whether you need to prepare for the change.

How will removing Exchange Online Basic authentication affect Dynamics 365 and Power Apps?

After October 1, 2022, any connection to Exchange Online that uses server-side sync or the Dynamics 365 Email Router with Basic authentication (username and password) will quit working. Dynamics 365 mailboxes that use these connections will no longer be able to:

  • Send email from Dynamics 365 through Exchange Online
  • Retrieve email from Exchange Online
  • Synchronize appointments, contacts, or tasks between Dynamics 365 and Exchange Online

This change doesn’t affect connections that use Modern authentication (OAuth 2.0 token-based authorization).

How can I find out if I need to prepare?

If your company is using server-side sync or the Email Router to connect to Exchange Online using a username and password, you need to act. There are a couple of ways to find out whether your organization is affected and what you need to do if it is.

Review your Message Center Posts (recommended)

The fastest and most reliable way to know if you need to prepare and what to do is to look in the Microsoft 365 Message Center. (You must have admin rights to sign in to the Message Center.) The Exchange Online team has been sending monthly Message Center posts to all affected customers with the following title format: “Basic Authentication – Monthly Usage Report – 2022.”

If your organization is using server-side sync with Basic authentication, you may also have received Message Center posts from the Dynamics 365 or Power Apps services. Look for posts with the following title: “Impact due to Exchange Online disabling Basic Authentication.”

The posts provide detailed information about the change and actions you need to take before October 1.

Check your Dynamics 365 email settings

If you don’t find any posts in the Message Center, read our guide on how to check whether your organization is affected and if it is, what you need to do before October 1.
