Windows 11 22H2 has issues with RDP and provisioning

There are two more issues with Windows 11 version 2022 Update. First of all, RDP users started to report about broken Remote Desktop connections after upgrading to version 22H2. Microsoft on other hand has confirmed one more issue with the newest OS: Provisioning is broken and can lead to non-working OOBE.

Remote Desktop users on Windows 11 22H2 report freezes and disconnections. For some of them, RDP simply fails to connect to the remote computer.


The issue appears to be related to a bug with UDP. As Bleeping Computer suggest, by disabling UDP for Remote Desktop you can get things back to normal.

For that, open the Registry and navigate to the HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows NT\Terminal Services\Client key. There, create a new 32-bit DWORD named fClientDisableUDP and set it to 1.

Microsoft is aware about these issues and is working on a fix.

The broken provisioning is mentioned on the mentioned on the Health Status page for Windows 11. It says:

Using provisioning packages on Windows 11, version 22H2 (also called Windows 11 2022 Update) might not work as expected. Windows might only be partially configured, and the Out Of Box Experience might not finish or might restart unexpectedly. Provisioning packages are .PPKG files which are used to help configure new devices for use on business or school networks. Provisioning packages which are applied during initial setup are most likely to be impacted by this issue.

There is no workaround for this issue as the cause of the failure is currently unknown.

Microsoft released Windows 11 2022 Update only last month, but the OS already suffers from various bugs. There are issues with printing, large file copy bug that causes performance degrades, and compatibility issues with Intel SST.
