Create Compatibility Collections in ConfigMgr for Windows 11 22H2

When Windows 11 was first released I published some resources for creating collections in ConfigMgr containing workstations in their various “update readiness” states, such as whether they are capable for upgrade, if they are blocked by the common blockers like CPU family or by a safeguard hold, for example.

Here I am publishing the same but for the 22H2 update.

Note this is just for the Windows 11 22H2 update, not Windows 10 22H2. The inventoried registry keys are:

HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\AppCompatFlags\TargetVersionUpgradeExperienceIndicators\NI22H2

HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\AppCompatFlags\CompatMarkers\NI22H2

As far as I can tell, these keys are just for the W11 22H2 update – I haven’t seen anything for W10 22H2.

Basically you just need to update your hardware inventory configuration as described in my previous blog, then run the PowerShell script to create the collections.

I’ve only personally seen 3 safeguard holds for 22H2, so I’ve included collections for those. There may be others, of course.

Interestingly, in my own environment at least, whilst the vast majority of devices in these collections are Windows 10, there are a few Windows 11 RTM devices as well.

You can get the 22H2 files from here.
