New Windows 11 build fixes Microsoft Installer issue breaking apps
Microsoft has fixed a recently confirmed Windows 11 issue in a newly released build for Windows Insiders in the Beta and Release Preview channels.
This issue would prevent apps from opening on multiple client and server Windows versions after being repaired or updated using the Windows Installer system tool (previously known as Microsoft Installer).
Systems affected by this bug include those where Windows users have installed the KB5007215 cumulative update issued during this month’s Patch Tuesday.
The fix issued today with Windows 11 Build 22000.348 (KB5007262) only for Windows Insiders is also expected to roll out to all impacted Windows 11 customers during the December 2021 Patch Tuesday.
“We fixed a known issue that might prevent apps, such as Kaspersky apps, from opening after you attempt to repair or update the apps using the Microsoft Installer (MSI),” the Windows Insider Program Team said.
While Microsoft is now providing Windows Insiders running the latest Windows 11 beta build with a fix, users of all other Windows versions impacted by this issue will have to wait for a future update.
The complete list of Windows versions impacted by this known issue includes:
The list of November cumulative updates that break Windows Installer’s functionality includes:
While not all impacted Windows versions have a fix ready, Microsoft provides a workaround for customers experiencing difficulties launching apps after deploying one of the problematic updates.
“To mitigate this issue, you will need to uninstall the affected app, then install the latest version of the app,” Microsoft said.
Redmond’s engineers are working to address this issue for all other Windows customers, which will be released with a future update.
Microsoft is also readying an update to address another issue impacting Windows 11 customers that can trigger blue screens of death (BSODs) on systems with Intel Smart Sound Technology (SST) audio DSP drivers.

First of all, get it together Microsoft. These bugs are getting sad. Second of all, the last time the "Windows Installer" was known as the "Microsoft Installer" was during the pre-release beta period in 1998 before the launch of Microsoft Office 2000. Microsoft quickly decided to name it the "Windows Installer" because they needed third party companies to adopt the technology. It was *never* officially known as the "Microsoft Installer".
