Windows 10 bug tells Microsoft to recall updated updates

Published on


Microsoft announced the drop of several updates that were distributed in recent months, due to a bug in the ClickOnce application. The Redmond company is also updating a new update to get the problem fixed.

ClickOnce applications are causing a bug.

ClickOnce is a Microsoft deployment technology that allows developers to create Windows-based applications and distribute them via Internet or their own networks. The Windows 10 bug could cause users to install an already installed and trusted application.

Using the Knowledge-Issue-Rollback feature for Windows, Microsoft has withdrawn all the changes that could have triggered the bug. The KIR feature restores PCs to the normal state that they were in before the now-distributed patches were installed. Most specifically, two Windows updates are affected: one released in July (KB5028244), and the other on August Day. Microsoft confirmed the bug in the Windows Health Dashboard.

The KIR was launched on August 14, and the misery in the buggy update was suspended on August 14 and replaced with a bug-free version. Windows users don’t have to do anything; thanks to KIR, Windows does this by itself. All that is required is an internet connection. However, it will take up to 24 hours to install a new update.

The Windows 10 versions are affected.

  • Windows 10 version 22H2.
  • Windows 10 version 21H2
