Windows 11: resolved issues

Issue 001: Compatibility issues with Intel “Killer” and "SmartByte" networking software

Microsoft confirmed compatibility issues between Intel networking software, "Killer and "SmartByte", and the company's Windows 11 operating system.

UDP packets may be dropped on devices affected by the issue as a consequence "under certain conditions".  Microsoft notes that users may experience that webpages load slower than usually, and that other Internet services, including video streaming services and VPN services, may also be slower than expected.

Resolution: released on the October 2021 Patch Tuesday (October 12, 2021)

Issue 003: Compatibility issues with apps using some non-ASCII characters in their registry keys

Applications that use certain non-ASCII characters in the Registry may not start or may cause other issues on Windows 11 devices. Errors may result in a bluescreen.

Resolution: Resolved in in KB5006746.

Issue 004: Installation of printers via Internet Printing Protocol (IPP) might not succeed

Microsoft is investigating an issue that is causing the installation of IPP, Internet Printing Protocol printers, to "not complete successfully". The company notes that IPP printers are usually found in organizations and not home environments.

Resolution: resolved

Issue 005: Custom printing properties might not be correctly provided to print server clients

The issue affects the print server and client communication, and results in clients printing using defaults and not using server provided preferences.

The issue affects print servers only, not standard network printing.

This issue results from an improper building of the data file which contains the printer properties. Clients which receive this data file will not be able to use the file content and will instead proceed with default printing settings. Servers which use default print settings and have no custom settings to provide to clients are unaffected.

Workaround: Either configure clients manually to use the desired printing configuration or install print drivers on the client directly.

Resolution: resolved

Issue 006: Installation of printers might fail when attempted over some network connections

Devices that connect to a network printer for the first time may fail to download and install printer drivers. The issue occurs with print servers only.

Workaround: Manual installation of printer drivers on the clients. Only the automated downloading and installing of printer drivers is affected.

Resolution: resolved

Issue 007: Some applications on devices that have AMD Ryzen processors might drop performance

Microsoft and AMD have released updates that address performance issues of devices with AMD processors that run Windows 11.

Devices with AMD Ryzen processors might experience latency in the L3 cache after upgrading to Windows 11. Some applications sensitive to memory subsystems performance access time might be affected, including diagnostic and benchmarking applications and certain gaming applications.

Resolution: resolved.

Issue 008: Receiving a prompt for administrative credentials every time you attempt to print

Windows may display a prompt to enter administrative credentials if the print server and print client are in different time zones.

Resolution: resolved.

    They could have made it easy on themselves and just stick with 10.But they just had to go and create windows 11 didn’t they.Also why does windows 11 look like it was made for phone users.A desktop computer is not a phone,when will they get it in their heads.

      If Microsoft wanted to give more strenght, power and tribute to Windows 10 they have made the right movement. Releasing such a disgraced Windows 11 like this, with a half baked taskar and a half baked file explorer is the worst idea they have had since Windows Vista. Honestly these are the two things that I dislike the more. @Martin and @Ashwin are both providing more info to solve some problems (e.g., to set the taskbar on top or uninstall Teams and Widgets) than Microsoft itself. :]

    Only yourself to blame if you upgrade to Windows 11. Horrible pre alpha quality product.

    Do yourself a favor and stay away from this crap. Issue solved.
    I you need M$, then there is Windows 7. Has some minor flaws, but nothing comparable to “successors”.

    When will this site be renamed to Win11hacks.net or M$hacks.net? Hopefully soon, because I’m getting impatient.

    It’s time to phase out Windows 10… in favor of Linux.
    1. Windows 11 won’t work on some older CPU’s – see https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-hardware/design/minimum/supported/windows-11-supported-intel-processors and https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-hardware/design/minimum/supported/windows-11-supported-amd-processors (none of the five PC’s I support could run it).
    2. It requires TPM 2.0
    3. There is a slowdown compared to Windows 10 on some CPU’s.
    4. A Microsoft account is required for some installations.
    Since all five PC’s run Ubuntu OS, either dual-boot or Linux-only, as Windows 10 loses support, it will make the choice simple.

      Even after 30 years of being around, Linux is still a hobbyist’s thing. Breakage, lousy driver support, loads of small annoyances which require help from obscure forums… No thanks.

        Agreed. Not meant for the main stream of users. Until the average person can install / uninstall programs without use of the CLI, it will never go much further. Linux is very unforgiving for a reason, but for the everyday individual, it just isnt going to mainstream.

    There is also a weird Error 0x8D050002 which prevents installation of certain apps like Discord, PowerToys, TeamSpeak, etc from the new Win11 App Store. Happening to very few it seems since not much about online.

      I got this error, and I can’t find the issus on the web. If you know what’s the solution, please tag me here. The errer came after I tried to install Discord, but now I can’t install any application.

      Thank’s for your answers !

    Had a gander at Windows 11, and am still shuddering at the pre-alpha quality of the whole thing. Feels like a combined rip-off of GNOME/macOS’s UI with lots of little visual bugs, delays and slowdowns. They’ve changed lots of little things for absolutely no reason, basically undermining muscle memory workflows which have been built up over years. Terrible stuff.

    I can’t believe that file integration in file explorer is so bad. Why are “send to”, “open with”, “create direct access” and “examine with microsoft defender” options in the “more options” section? It’s completely unbelievable because it’s supossed that they are integrated inside the own OS? Also the night light mode can’t be set according to the exact time in minutes, as it’s currently offer again in pieces of 15 minutes. Also the clock only offers two more clocks, no change since W95. :[

      So far W11 is an absolute horror show. I can’t believe they considered this suitable for public consumption.

        For another example of their zero QA, right-click somewhere on the Desktop. A context menu in the new design appears with various options. If you click ‘More options’, another context menu appears: it’s the same context menu as at first, but in the old Windows 10 design – with the same options as the first one. This is unbelievable.

    Recycle Bin context menu – the selected item looks horrible. The same can be seen in the main menu of classic applications. Such an obvious bug, but not Microsoft.

    Has the VPN issue been resolved? I was not able to use my Nord with Win 11. I couldn’t find anything over the net and switched to Ivacy.

    recently posted from BleepingComputer site – Brother printers may not work in Windows 11 if connected via USB
    https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/microsoft/brother-printers-may-not-work-in-windows-11-if-connected-via-usb/

    looks like certain Brother printers stop working properly under Win11 when connected to a USB port. don’t use nor upgrade to Win11 if using those affected Brother printers until MS issues fixes & Brother issues updated drivers to resolve these problems
