Windows 11 update brings certain translation issues and other problems
It is hardly a badge of honor for Microsoft just how much everybody thinks that Windows updates usually mean Windows problems. Again and again, when downloading and installing Windows updates, users are met with issues and problems that simply weren’t there before. Unfortunately, Windows 11 version 22H” is no exception to what is basically a rule at this point, with Microsoft recently confirming two issues affecting the update.
Certain language packs not working as they are supposed to
The first of the two issues, which Microsoft has confirmed relates to languages that use multibyte characters. These types of characters are distinct for they are composed of sequences of one or more bytes. Examples of languages that have multibyte characters are Korean, Japanese, and Chinese. According to the blog post confirming the issues, the operations required to convert these types of characters may not function properly. It says:
“When typing in languages that use multibyte character sets - such as Japanese, Korean, and Chinese - operations to convert characters might not function correctly. Text conversion occurs when a series of characters is transformed into different characters by means of user selection. This commonly involves additional Prediction candidate and Conversion candidate windows, which appear near the cursor position while typing.
Symptoms observed can include:
- ?An incorrect range of characters is automatically selected for conversion, resulting in the conversion candidate window displaying unexpected options.
- The cursor might move to an unexpected position, resulting in the selection of the wrong sequence of characters for conversion. This can cause symptom 1.”
This problem is affecting all Windows 11 users who have updated to version 22H2, with Microsoft saying that it is working on a resolution and will update users when it has one.
Provisioning packages may fail to install some apps correctly
Provisioning packages for Windows are containers for administrators to put a host of configuration settings and apps into so that they can quickly and efficiently configure end-user devices without having to install a new image.
Unfortunately, however, the time and effort-saving process may be disrupted for a while for users who have updated to Windows 11 version 2H22. The update has caused the provisioning packages to fail when installing some apps, with the announcement saying:
“Affected apps require elevated privileges to install (must be installed as administrator) and might not have sufficient privileges during provisioning to install. Provisioning packages are .PPKG files which are used to help configure new devices for use on business or school networks.”
At the moment, Microsoft can only say that it is working on a solution for the problem, with the only available workaround being to install any required apps that failed to install manually after the provisioning is complete.
Another month, another issue. W11 in its pure essence. Thanks for the article. :]
Windows update ‘sometimes’ means Windows problems, not ‘usually’. I understand you mean across all Windows devices but your wording sensationalizes the problem.
It is unusual any of the update issues are critical and incurable for many devices.
People should fear the underlying reason that update are necessary rather than the update itself.
The message to spread is ‘backup in case the worst happens’. Backup helps negate the rare major issue. Do it right, you only lose time.
but shaun tells us windows 11 is the best operating system out there….
One more day I’m happy I’m using Windows 7. Microsoft can take their Windows 11 and shove it.
Very glad I have not upgraded to Win 11, as of yet. Will probably wait until end of support in 2025. Even then, I am wonderig at that point if I won’t opt for an extended support license like it is the case right now for Win 7. Time will tell!.
