Today Microsoft released Windows 10 21H2 Build 19044.1741 (KB5014023) to the Release Preview Channel for those Insiders who are on Windows 10.
This update includes this additional fix below.
- Microsoft fixed an issue that prevents the file system control code (FSCTL_SET_INTEGRITY_INFORMATION_EX) from handling its input parameter correctly.
It also includes all the improvements from 19044.1739 which are listed below:
- Microsoft introduced new sorting version 6.4.3, which addresses the sorting issue that affects Japanese half-width katakana.
- Microsoft prevented users from bypassing forced enrollment by disconnecting from the internet when they sign into Azure Active Directory (AAD).
- Microsoft fixed an issue that might run an AnyCPU application as a 32-bit process.
- Microsoft fixed an issue that prevents Azure Desired State Configuration (DSC) scenarios that have multiple partial configurations from working as expected.
- Microsoft fixed an issue that affects remote procedure calls (RPC) to the Win32_User or Win32_Group WMI class. The domain member that runs the RPC contacts the primary domain controller (PDC). When multiple RPCs occur simultaneously on many domain members, this might overwhelm the PDC.
- Microsoft fixed an issue that occurs when adding a trusted user, group, or computer that has a one-way trust in place. The error message, “The object selected doesn’t match the type of destination source” appears.
- Microsoft fixed an issue that fails to display the Application Counters section in the performance reports of the Performance Monitor tool.
- Microsoft fixed a known issue that affects certain GPUs and might cause apps to close unexpectedly or cause intermittent issues that affect some apps that use Direct3D 9. You might also receive an error in the Event Log in Windows Logs/Applications, and the faulting module is d3d9on12.dll and the exception code is 0xc0000094.
- Microsoft fixed a rare issue that prevents Microsoft Excel or Microsoft Outlook from opening.
- Microsoft fixed a memory leak issue that affects Windows systems that are in use 24 hours each day of the week.

- Microsoft fixed an issue that causes print failures when a low integrity level (LowIL) application prints to a null port.
- Microsoft fixed an issue that prevents BitLocker from encrypting when you use the silent encryption option.
- Microsoft fixed an issue that occurs when you apply multiple WDAC policies. Doing that might prevent scripts from running when the policies allow scripts to run.

- Microsoft fixed an issue that might cause the Remote Desktop client application to stop working when you end a session.

- Microsoft fixed an issue in which the Cluster Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) provider (ClustWMI.dll) generates high CPU usage in WMIPRVSE.EXE.
- Microsoft fixed an issue that causes Microsoft’s deduplication driver to consume large amounts of nonpaged pool memory. As a result, this depletes all the physical memory on the machine, which causes the server to stop responding.
