Announcing Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 22449 - Windows Blogs
UPDATE 7:10PM PDT: Recently, Windows Insiders in both the Dev and Beta Channels began reporting that Start and Taskbar were unresponsive and Settings and other areas of the OS wouldn’t load.
We quickly discovered an issue with a server-side deployment that went out to Insiders and cancelled that deployment.
If you were impacted by this issue, you can use the following steps to get back into a working state on your PC.
- Step 1: Use CTRL-ALT-DEL and choose to open Task Manager.
- Step 2: Choose “More details” at the bottom of Task Manager to expand Task Manager.
- Step 3: Go to “File” and choose “Run new task”.
- Step 4: Type “cmd” in the “Open” field.
- Step 5: Paste the following (everything in bold):
reg delete HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\IrisService /f && shutdown -r -t 0
- Step 6: Hit enter, and then your PC should reboot. After rebooting, everything should be back to normal.
Hello Windows Insiders, today we are releasing Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 22449 to the Dev Channel.
You may notice that this build number is higher than the Windows 11 preview builds you’ve been receiving.
That’s because we’re moving the Dev Channel back to receiving builds from our active development branch (RS_PRERELEASE).
This means the builds released to the Dev Channel no longer match the Windows 11 experience that will be released to customers on October 5th.
These builds are from the earliest stage in a new development cycle with the latest work-in-progress code from our engineers. These aren’t always stable builds, and sometimes you will see issues that block key activities or require workarounds while flighting in the Dev Channel.
It is important to make sure you read the known issues listed in our blog posts as we document many of these issues with each flight. Because of being at the earliest stage of a new development cycle, you won’t see new features or major changes in these builds right away.
These builds are also not matched to a specific release. New features and OS improvements from these builds could show up in future Windows releases when they’re ready, and we may deliver them as full OS updates or servicing releases.
