Windows 11 22H2 users encountered a problem after installing the next update package. Microsoft has confirmed that after a system restore, there can be problems running some of the operating system’s built-in applications. Windows 11 22H2 users with update package KB5023152 face this issue.
The problem raised can be expressed in different ways. For example, when users start applications after a system restore, they may see an “Application failed to start” message. In addition, when applications are launched, freezes or spontaneous shutdowns may occur during their work. This applies to Notepad, Paint, Microsoft Office applications, Cortana, and Windows Terminal. The errors appear in applications that use the MSIX package format for Windows, so there could be more.
Microsoft said in a post that running the problematic app again might fix the problem. If this does not help, users can try reinstalling the software product from the Microsoft Store. Strangely, when bugs are found, Microsoft usually announces the development of a patch to fix the situation. This time the developers did not announce the upcoming release of the patch, so it is not clear whether Microsoft plans to release a separate update to solve the problem with applications after system restore in Windows 11 22H2.
