In preparation for the eventual rollout via the stable channel, the company is also rolling out updates to the base Windows 11 build.

Glossary Microsoft Cabinet
Windows updates are stored in a special archive format called Microsoft Cabinet (CAB). This file supports embedded digital certificates that can be used to maintain archive integrity. Microsoft wraps Microsoft Update Catalog updates often into the MSU format ( Window 11 Update Tracker).
This index’s primary focus is on Cumulative Updates, also known as Monthly Rollups. These include both reliability and security updates that are packaged together. Because they are cumulative, the latest rollup package can update the target Windows version to the latest build regardless of previous build numbers.
Sometimes, it may be necessary to apply a Servicing Stack Update (SSU) before installing the latest Cumulative Update (CU). Microsoft bundles the servicing stack with other updates before publishing an individual MSU package. For ease of deployment, system administrators or power users may prefer the CAB variant. Always install/integrate SSUs before you engage with the CU. Microsoft also offers CUs for Windows OSs. NET Framework section. They are distributed separately from regular CUs, unlike the SSU.
Windows Feature Experience Pack, another type of Windows update, delivers additional feature improvements to customers that are not available in major Windows feature updates. Next, Dynamic Updates are (DU), which are intended for the Windows setup engine. These are automatically downloaded and applied to the Windows setup engine on the fly. The can use them to fix the Windows recovery environment (WinRE), set up binary files, or any other files that Windows setup uses for feature upgrades. We decided not to include them in the index, as we don’t want clutter.
For a better understanding of Windows update terminology, please refer to the article on the types of Windows updates. An inter-OS (e.g., An inter-OS (e.g., Windows 10 to Window 11 Update Tracker), or an interbuild (e.g., This is a more complicated scenario.

How to Install these Windows 11 New Build Version
You will need to use a system utility called Deployment Image Service and Management (DISM) to install a CAB upgrade package. It would help if you used the command line syntax:
dism /online /add-package /packagepath:<path_to_cabfile>
Packages for PSF and CAB
However, DISM cannot handle the PSF packages. This means that we must manually combine the PSF files and CAB files before installing them offline. This task can be done using an open-source tool called PSFX Repack.
- Extract the PSFX Repack Tool archive to a folder with an easy path, such as “D:PSFX_Repack \”).
- Move the CAB and PSF files that correspond to the LCU to the above folder. Make sure to remove the hash (if present) from the file names so that the file set looks like Windows10.0-KBxxxxxxx-x64.cab and Windows10.0-KBxxxxxxx-x64.psf.
- To generate the combined CAB file, run psfx2cab_CLI.cmd
- First, you can use DISM to install the most recent SSU CAB and then the LCU CAB file.
- The MSU version, however, can be installed as a standalone package by double-clicking on it. DISM is capable of installing MSU files.
- You can view the list of all updates that have been installed to your computer through Windows 11’s Settings app. Here’s how you can access it.
- Click Settings to open Windows Update.
- Click/tap Update history.
- You can see the list of updates installed by using the Features applet from the classic Control Panel.
- Right-click Start, click .
appwiz.cpl, and click OK. This will open the Programs and Features section of the classic Control Panel.
- On the left, click the View all installed updates button. This will display the updated list and the date column.
- You can also choose DISM (Windows Management Instrumentation) if you prefer the command-line.
- The command must be executed from an elevated instance Windows Terminal.
- Use DISM
dism /online /get-packages /format:table | findstr "Package_for"
- Use WMIC
