One more bug: June updates break login process for Windows on ARM

Quickly after releasing June Cumulative updates Microsoft confirmed a bug that prevents the user from enabling a mobile hotspot on Windows 11 and 10. Sadly, it was not the only bug introduced in this update. Another issue affects ARM versions of the OSes and breaks the login process.

The Windows Health Dashboard website notes one more confirmed bug. After installing  KB5014697, part of June cumulative updates, Windows on ARM will no longer be able to sign in to Azure Active Directory and Microsoft 365 services.

The latter may have significant impact, as it may affect several products, including VPN connections, Teams, OneDrive, and Outlook. As a workaround, Microsoft suggests using web versions of the tools. They don't rely on the user account in Windows, and use the Microsoft Account registered in the browser. If this is not your way, you can try to uninstall the latest update.

Currently, Microsoft is investigating the issue. The affected Windows versions are Windows 11, version 21H2; Windows 10, version 21H2; Windows 10, version 21H1; Windows 10, version 20H2. All these versions when running on an ARM device will give you login issues. Owners of more traditional hardware, i.e. on the x86/x64 platform, are lucky this time.
