Windows 11 Build 22000.51 - Settings Fails to Launch for Devices with Multiple User Accounts

Hello Windows Insiders!

We released the first preview build of Windows 11 today to the Dev Channel.  We're excited and hope you are as well!

There is currently a known issue that affects devices with multiple user accounts that take this upgrade.  Here are the details and a workaround for the bug.

Who:  Dev Channel users installing the upgrade to build 22000.51

What:  Settings app will fail to launch on devices that have multiple user accounts prior to the build install

Why:  Known bug causing the issue, fix is underway for a future preview build

To work around this issue after the install, please follow these steps:

  1. Ensure all work is saved on the device.  Close open applications.

  2. Click Start

  3. Type powershell and select/launch the Windows PowerShell application


  4. Copy/paste and execute this ENTIRE command:

    • Get-appxpackage microsoft.ui.xaml.cbs |? {($_.version -ne "2.62106.1002.0")} | remove-appxpackage
      Add-appxpackage -Register -DisableDevelopmentMode -ForceApplicationShutdown C:\Windows\SystemApps\Microsoft.UI.Xaml.CBS_8wekyb3d8bbwe\AppxManifest.xml
      Get-appxpackage microsoft.ui.xaml.cbs |? {($_.version -ne "2.62106.1002.0")} | remove-appxpackage
      Add-appxpackage -Register -DisableDevelopmentMode -ForceApplicationShutdown C:\Windows\SystemApps\Microsoft.UI.Xaml.CBS_8wekyb3d8bbwe\AppxManifest.xml

  5. Once completed, please try to open the Settings app.  If it opens successfully, you're done!

  6. If the issue persists, please paste and re-run the command a second time

  7. After running the script a second time, please open the Settings app again.

  8. If the crash issues persists, please reboot the device and this should complete the process.

That should fix affected devices. We're also working on a fix that will be included in a future preview build to prevent users from needing this workaround.

Please share below if you have any questions about this workaround or if you have any issues when running it.

Thank you!

I think i have the same issue. i can't launch the start menu either by clicking on start or by clicking on the windows key from the keyboard. Also I can't open the action center to view notifications and I can' t pin or unpin programs on the taskbar (generally right clicking on program icons on the taskbar doesn't work at all) please help if there is a work around this as this is the only issue i am facing currently on this build.

Start and the taskbar didn't work, My explorer restart every 5-10 seconds after upgrade from Windows 10.

When I remove latest fixes with windows 10 CD.

System boot fine but control panel from Windows 10, start & explorer from Windows 11.
system info show Windows 11 Pro (DEV).

Chuwi lapbook pro have this problems.

Check utility -device compatible.

CPU in compatible list.

But in Virtualbox START work perfect.
