Windows 11 build 22000.194 (co_release_svc_prod1) is the general availability build of Windows 11. It was originally released to Windows Insiders in the Beta Channel on 16 September 2021 and later offered as an optional upgrade to all Insiders in the Release Preview Channel, as opposed to only commercial PCs. Disc images of this build were made available on 4 October 2021 in preparation for its public release the next day.

Changes[edit | edit source]

Applications[edit | edit source]

Setup[edit | edit source]

  • Starting from this build, the setup will check for Trusted Platform Module support on hypervisors in accordance with the announced Windows 11 system requirements, aligning the requirement to be the same as it is for physical machines since build 21996. It can be bypassed by using dism.exe to directly apply the install image, or by disabling the check in the registry before running setup:

Bugfixes[edit | edit source]

  • Addressed an issue where if a contrast theme is enabled then disabled, it would lead to artifacts in title bars, in some cases making the minimize/maximize/close buttons hard to see and use.
  • Fixed a crash with certain connected devices that could result in not being able to use Bluetooth.
  • Mitigated an issue that was resulting in subtitles not appearing when expected in certain apps, particularly Japanese language subtitles.
  • Fixed an issue that was causing certain devices to bugcheck during modern standby.
  • Mitigated an issue when typing with certain 3rd party IMEs into the search box in Settings that could result in the candidate window being rendered elsewhere on-screen (not attached to the search box) and/or characters inserted into the search box not displaying.
  • Fixed an issue that causes PowerShell to create an infinite number of child directories, which may occur when using the PowerShell Move-Item command to move a directory to one of its children. As a result, the volume fills up and the system stops responding.

Bugs and quirks[edit | edit source]

Shell[edit | edit source]

  • The Widgets board may appear empty. This can be fixed by logging out and back in.
  • The Widgets may be displayed in the wrong size on external monitors.
  • The options to open System and Windows Terminal may be missing from the Win+X menu.

Taskbar[edit | edit source]

The taskbar will sometimes flicker when switching input methods.

Search[edit | edit source]

  • After clicking the Search icon on the Taskbar, the Search panel may not open. This can be fixed by restarting Explorer and opening the search panel again.
  • The search panel may appear as black and not display any content below the search box.
  • Text may be unable to be inputted when using Search from Start or the taskbar. This can be fixed by pressing Win+R to open the Run dialog box and then closing it.

Bugcheck[edit | edit source]

Some Surface Pro X devices with this build may bugcheck with a WHEA_UNCORRECTABLE_ERROR.

Bootloader[edit | edit source]

When multi-booting this build with either Windows 8, 8.1 or 10, it will show the Windows logo for said versions on the multi-boot selection menu, but not for 11. The same is true for 7 and Vista where its name simply gets displayed inside a window.
