  1. Build 14942 available for download for PC.

    Known issues for PC

    • Insiders doing web development may find themselves their local intranet server unreachable, as service host separation will leave the IIS World Wide Web Publishing Service (W3Svc) unable to start successfully. To fix this issue:

    1. Run the following from an admin cmd line (or edit the registry accordingly):

    a. REG ADD HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\W3SVC /v SvcHostSplitDisable /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f

    b. REG ADD HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\WAS /v SvcHostSplitDisable /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f

    2. Reboot the system, so that the W3Svc and WAS services share a service host process.

  2. Update 14936 is available for PC's and Phone. 

    Hello Windows Insiders!

    Today we are excited to be releasing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 14936 for PC to Windows Insiders in the Fast ring.

    New Extensions in Microsoft Edge

    We’re working with partners on adding new extensions and want our Insiders to try them out first! We have another new release which we need your help testing and giving feedback on before we publish to the general public: Turn Off the Lights is a lightweight and useful add-in designed for a more comfortable video experience. We also need some more help testing our other preview extensions: Tampermonkey is a popular userscript manager that lets users customize the content of pages across the web. Microsoft Personal Shopping Assistant is your smart shopping cart across the web, which collects your browsed products and lets you get price alerts for saved products and compare products between sellers. You can install this at the links above and try them out on any Anniversary Update build – send feedback to the Feedback Hub or @MSEdgeDev on Twitter.

    Authentication changes affecting connectivity to NAS devices and home file servers

    After updating to the latest Insider Preview builds, you may have noticed that shared devices on your home network have disappeared from your home network folder. You may have also noticed your mapped network drives are not available. If you change your network to “private” or “enterprise”, it should start working again. For more information on this behavior change, see this Microsoft Security Bulletin.

    Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) Updates

    WSL will install Ubuntu version 16.04 (Xenial) instead of Ubuntu 14.04 (Trusty) in an upcoming release. This change will apply to Insiders installing new instances (lxrun.exe /install or first run of bash.exe). Existing instances with Trusty will not be upgraded automatically. Users can upgrade their Trusty image to Xenial using the do-release-upgrade command. Full WSL release notes can be found here.

    Other improvements and fixes for PC

    • We fixed the issue causing Narrator to continually speak the progress of a song e.g. update with the current time of the progress bar every second if you navigate to the progress bar while a song is playing in Groove Music.
    • We fixed the issue where using the tab key to navigate the Settings app wouldn’t work.
    • We fixed an issue resulting in Explorer.exe frequently crashing for some Insiders, particularly for those with multiple network switches.

    Known issues for PC

    • Optional components may not work after upgrading to this build. To get it working again, go to “Turn Windows features on or off”, scroll down and check the right optional component and click ok.  After a reboot, the optional component will be enabled again.
    • Tencent apps and games will cause your PC to bugcheck (bluescreen).
    • Running sfc /scannow in an elevated command prompt will fail at 20% with the error “could not perform the requested operation.”

    Other improvements and fixes for Mobile

    • We fixed the issue causing the pin pad to not be visible to unlock the phone even after rebooting the phone.
    • We fixed the issue where some phones lose the ability to use their SIM cards.
    • We fixed the mobile hotspot issue where it works the first time but subsequent attempts to use the feature won’t work until the phone is rebooted.
    • We fixed an issue causing some devices such as the Lumia 650 from failing to install a new build with Error 0x80188308.
    • We fixed the issue causing some build updates to fail with an 800703ed error code.
    • We fixed the issue where Action Center no longer closes if you swipe up on the empty space (area of Action Center that doesn’t show any notifications).
    • We fixed an issue where notifications were unexpectedly showing the app logo within the notification when viewed in Action Center.
    • We fixed an issue for devices that shipped with Windows Phone 8.1, such as the Lumia 930 and 1520, where if you plugged in a headset during an ongoing call, the audio would not be routed to the headset.

    Known issues for Mobile

    • If you have your default storage set to a SD card for apps, installation of apps like WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger and WeChat will fail with an error. As a workaround, set your default location to your device’s onboard storage.

    Another very important reminder about build expiration

    We want to continue to remind Windows Insiders about the upcoming expiration of old Insider Preview builds. Since September 15th, PCs running really old Insider Preview builds started to see build expiration notifications once a day. Starting on October 1st, these PCs will start rebooting every 3 hours and then on October 15th – these PCs will stop booting all together. If your PC is running one of these old Insider Preview builds, please make sure you update to the latest build available via Settings > Update & security > Windows Update. Build 14926 and newer has an updated expiration date of May 1st, 2017. If your PC is running the Windows 10 Anniversary Update (Build 14393) in the Slow and Release Preview rings today – this does not apply to you and you will not be notified of your build expiring.



    Team Updates

    Our team has been all over the world lately, enjoying meeting Windows Insiders globally and learning about their specific tech needs. This week, Director of Program Management, Windows Insider Program & OS Fundamentals (and our boss!), Bill Karagounis enjoyed meeting lots of our Windows Insiders at Microsoft Ignite in Atlanta. He addressed several audiences as he spoke about the year ahead for the program and our philosophy around Co-Creating with our Community. His talk was fittingly called CoCreate(Community).  #nerds4life



    We worked with the wonderful Surface Smiths to record many of the interviews with the Windows Insiders and we will be sharing out these stories on our channels soon.

    In another part of the world, Director of Quality, OS Fundamentals Bambo Sofola, Jeremiah Marble, Thomas Trombley and I spent the week in Lagos, Nigeria last week launching the #WINsiders4Good Fellowship – Lagos. While there, we also met with several key business and IT decision makers to understand the current landscape for tech usage in their companies as well as their goals for the coming year. From us they learned…the ways of the #NinjaCat.


    We’ll have a lot more to share in the upcoming weeks about what we all learned on our global treks and what we’ll do with these learnings to build a better product for ALL of us.

    Thank you everyone and keep hustling,
    Dona <3

  3. For win10 only as the phone version has been postponed until some issues can be addressed.


    It did download for on my phone, and it works so-so.  The mobile hotspot is all messed up.  Was on vacation and couldn't use it at all on my Surface Pro 3, so had to borrow another phone that wasn't on the Insider Preview.  I was hoping they would have fixed it by now.

    1. Your forum rules work on the forum only. You can not punish me for breaking your forum rules outside the forum. You have to understand this.
      You said the same year ago and now I say it to you. For some reason you forget about it.
    2. Every author want to see as many users as possible. But how many users can find and download skins on forum?
      How many users did you block without reason, just because you can? For example, I know man, who create account, add photo, infrormation about himself and has been blocked. Why? Because of "spam". What spam? Link to personal website in the infromation about user. Does it contradict the rules? No!

    You can complain as much as you want, but if the OWNER doesn't want his art to be distributed, that is HIS decision, not YOURS.  And you have no idea the reason for blocking someone, so stop "guessing".

    I did not like this,

    The author has the right to decide who he distributes his work to.  Stealing and re-distributing artwork without the authors permission is plagiarizm.

  6. Cumulative update for Windows 10 version 1607 for x64 based systems was just released.  Nice quick install.  There's also a firmware update for Surface Pro 3's.

    I registered at the beginning of tests MX5, june 15, (VIP3), and until now I didn't get the confirmation mail. I changed my email address to another and still nothing. Any help?

    Nope, the only thing we can tell you is to please be a little more patient.  Some people are getting their emails already, so you may be soon.

    But how i can send him a message?

    You can create an account on the Chinese forum and ask him there.  There are several English speaking members who have accounts there.

    Still haven't gotten anything :c

    8 Years I've used maxthon for.

    I've been using Maxthon for 10 years, am a Vice-Admin and was 6th to register with a VIP3 status and I STILL DON'T HAVE MY EMAIL.  So as @ventage said, Patience, it is a virtue.
