Is your Windows 11 in-place upgrade stuck? Newly released Windows updates affect CapaWinUpgrade
By Dan Svendsen, CPO, CapaSystems
On August 8, 2023, Microsoft released several updates that cause in-place upgrade to be stuck, when upgrading to Windows 11 22H2.
These updates have been merged into the installation media (ISO) and therefore also affect CapaWinUpgrade.
We have confirmed the issue when upgrading to Windows 11 22H2 using the Danish or English installation media from August or September.
The symptom of the issue is that the in-place upgrade gets stuck, typically at 14%.
The solution is to use the installation media from July 2023 or earlier and execute the in-place upgrade with dynamic updates disabled.
To address this issue, we have retired the content packages for Windows 11 22H2 from August and September and have adjusted CapaWinUpgrade to execute Windows 11 in-place upgrades without dynamic updates.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.
