If you’re attempting to roll back Windows 11’s 2022 Update to an earlier time, beware: numerous applications within Windows might not open as an outcome.
Microsoft has actually released KB5023152, a mistake message that cautions that apps that utilize the MSIX Windows app format might suffer problems or merely decline to open. In plainer English, that suggests that apps like Office, Cortana, Notepad, Paint, and Terminal might return mistake messages or merely decline to release. Other apps might be impacted, too.
The problems aren’t constant, either. Microsoft notes the following as possible app habits:
- A mistake message “This app can’t open” is shown rather of the app beginning.
- The app may have several entries on the Start menu.
- An app might not react when you attempt to begin the app.
- An I/O mistake might take place, followed by the app not reacting, and after that the app crashes.
- If you attempt to begin the app once again, the app now runs.
Right now, the mistakes just afflict Windows 11 22 H2, officially referred to as the Windows 11 2022 Update Microsoft does not state that the business is working on a repair. For the minute, the business’s designers are stymied by the concern. Workarounds consist of attempting to release the app once again, attempting to re-install the app from the Microsoft Store, and running Windows Update– all of which would belong to any fundamental troubleshooting.
Ironically, going back to an earlier system bring back point is another common option to an issue with an application set up, as Tom’s Hardware, which submitted an earlier report on the problem, notes. Ideally, Microsoft figures all this out quickly.
