Windows Server vNext build 25197 ISO download now out in 18 languages

vnext windows server

Microsoft has released a new build of the Windows Server Insider Preview. Build 25197 is available to download as an ISO from the Windows Server Insider website along with a VHDX. Even though this uses the same underlying kernel as the Windows 11 Dev build development, as per usual, there's no changelog to speak of, so it's unclear what's new in this build.

The branding for Server has still not been updated and remains as Windows Server 2022 in the preview. In addition, Microsoft is asking Insiders to refer to these builds as vNext rather than Windows Server 2022 which is already in the market.

Microsoft has said that the Known Issue from build 25192 that applies to the Desktop Experience has now been resolved, below is the Known Issue from the previous build that was fixed:

"In this build, the Windows Taskbar has a known issue where it can become out-of-sync with the visible windows on the Desktop. If you run into this, you can try using Alt-Tab to work around it and navigate through the open windows. Restarting the system will put the Taskbar back in sync, though the problem may recur after a period of time."

  • Windows Server VNext Preview in ISO format in 18 languages,
    and in VHDX format in English only.
