The KB5040442 update only includes some security quality updates, mainly related to issues in Windows Installer, Remote Desktop MultiPoint Server, and Remote Authentication Dial-In User Service (RADIUS) protocol.

Windows Installer. When repairing an application, the User Account Control (UAC) will not prompt for credentials. After installing this update, the UAC will prompt for an update. Therefore, it may be necessary to update the automated script. For this, add the shield icon. It indicates that the process requires full administrator access. To turn off the UAC prompt, set the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Installer\DisableLUAInRepair registry value to 1.

Remote Desktop MultiPoint Server. A race condition can cause the service to stop responding.

Remote Authentication Dial-In User Service (RADIUS) protocol. This problem is related to the MD5 conflict.

This update also includes some known problems, such as the possible problem (error code 0x80070005) when upgrading from Windows Pro to a valid Windows Enterprise subscription. Microsoft has no solution for the moment and only says that it is working hard to release a solution in the next few weeks.

In addition, installing KB5039302 may lead to unable to view or interact with the taskbar, but this problem will only occur on devices running the Windows N version.
