As you know, Microsoft releases its first monthly patch for Windows in the first week of the month. It is usually the first Tuesday of every month. But it also offers an optional update at the end of the month that, if there are no setbacks, will end up being the next month’s cumulative update. This time we have to talk about the KB5012643 patch that makes Windows 11 reach version 220000.652. Let’s see what’s new in this patch.
What’s New in Windows 11 Update KB5012643
- new! Improvements have been made to the Windows Secure Boot Component service.
- Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) logging time changed from 60 to 90 minutes for mixed scenarios added to Azure AD Autopilot. This also resolves the race condition that was causing the timeout exception.

- Fixed an issue showing a black screen for some users when logging in or out.
- Fixed an issue that caused Kerberos authentication to fail with the error “0xc0030009 (RPC_NT_NULL_REF_POINTER)”. This occurs when the client machine tries to use RDP (Remote Desktop Protocol) to communicate with another machine while Remote Credential Guard is enabled.
- Fixed an issue preventing an expired password from being changed when accessing a Windows device.

- Fixed an issue that destroyed a group when the client-side cache cleanup (CSC) method failed to delete a created resource.
