Hi Matthias

The priviledge system has changed in 3.22.11.
So you have to rebuild your priviledges in the "mysql" database.
This isn't difficult.
You just have to mysqldump the old one (data only):
C:\mysql\bin> mysqldump -uroot --complete-insert --quick --no-create-info mysql
and then use after upgrading:
C:\mysql\bin> mysql -uroot mysql <oldPrivs.sql
