Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 22000.194 is released to the Beta Channel on Sep. 16th, 2021. This patch just as previous update is aimed to fix bugs and improve the experience of Windows 11. However, Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 22000.194 is rolling out Snipping Tool, Calculator, and Clock with Focus Sessions!
There is one thing need we pay attention: Windows 11 Build 22000.194 and above requires TPM 2.0 in virtual machines likes Hyper-V manager and VMWare. That means you can’t install Windows 11 Build 22000.194 and above updates in the virtual machines without TPM 2.0. Before Windows 11 Build 22000.194, Microsoft allows users install Windows 11 in the virtual machines which even doesn’t satisfy the minimum system requirements. But after the release of Windows 11 Build 22000.194, Microsoft confirm that this patch and newer require TPM 2.0 for virtual machines. It sends out a signal: TPM 2.0 will become the mandatory requirement for Windows 11 when the Windows 11 official version available on October 5th, 2021.
So, you can’t update to the Windows 11 Build 22000.194 if your virtual machine is not using TPM. For Hyper-V users, if they want to continue use this Windows 11 patch, they can switch to the Second-generation and enable TPM module. For VMWare users, they need to enable cryptographic function at first and then add TPM 2.0 module from VMWare settings.
