I have devoted some time over the weekend to this issue, but I still don’t have a good idea what was changed by an update and how to fix this. It is definitely not about driver signing because that phase is passed fine. And setupapi.dev.log does not contain any helpful information:

Mentioned Problem: 0x1c is CM_PROB_FAILED_INSTALL for which I could find anything helpful besides https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-hardware/drivers/install/cm-prob-failed-install

The only solution I can see so far would be creating a new NDIS 6 virtual network adapter driver…
