- We fixed an issue that prevented some modern apps from opening.
- We fixed an issue that affected some company-managed devices. This improved the reliability of app installation on these devices.
- We fixed an issue that caused Daylight Saving Time (DST) to not work correctly in the Republic of Fiji.
- We fixed an issue that affected Distributed Component Object Model (DCOM) authentication hardening. The authentication level is automatically raised for all non-anonymous activation requests from DCOM clients to RPC_C_AUTHN_LEVEL_PKT_INTEGRITY. This happens if the authentication level is below Packet Integrity.
- Addresses an issue that affects Unified Update Platform (UUP) enterprise clients. Because of it, the system could not receive offline language packs.
- Fixed an issue affecting process creation. It caused the system to fail to generate security audits and other related events for the process.

- We fixed an issue that caused some applications to crash when using a keyboard shortcut to change the input mode for the Japanese Input Method Editor (IME).

- We fixed an issue that could affect applications running under the Windows Lock Down Policy (WLDP). Because of this problem, they might not work.
