Finally ... Successful Install of 22H2 Upgrade on W11 Desktop

edited December 2022 in SmartSDR for Windows

I now have SSDR 3.3.33 running on W10 & W11 desktops & W11 on a Surface Pro all at WINVER 22H2 ...

I had issues with the 22H2 upgrade on the W11 desktop ... it failed 2 times with a BSOD (Portcls.sys Page Fault) before I finally got through a successful upgrade late yesterday.

I had to jump through the following hoops to successfully complete the upgrade to 22H2:

(1) I followed the "Complete Uninstall of SmartSDR instructions)" and uninstalled ==> SSDR 3.2.39, 3.3.29, 3.3.32, & 3.3.33

(2) Then I uninstalled the software for AG, PGXL, TGXL and FRStack (pobably didn't need to but did anyway)

(3) In a CMD window I ran:

DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

sfc /scannow

(4) Then I stopped the Windows Update Service and deleted ALL of the files & folders in C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download

(5) Then I (re)started the Windows Update Service

** I did NOT disable my antivirus software (I forgot)

I rebooted the W11 desktop and then ran the update of the 22H2 upgrade w/o issue.

    Hi Steve,

    Thanks for detailed information. Is good to know. However I run already SSDR v3.3.33 /22H2 on a W11 Pro system without any of the above issues. It is probably not affecting everybody. It is but true that at some point i had too this portcls.sys fault but after reboot it did not come back. I wonder if anybody else face this problem.

    It is not uncommon to have the portcls.sys BSOD after a fresh install of DAX ( included in SSDR install ) or a MAJOR windows update.

    Usually it does not reappear after rebooting.
