    Windows Insider problem installing latest Preview


    Hi everyone!

    I am a Windows Insider, for few weeks now, I am trying to install the latest Preview, version 16273, but fail every time.

    My system downloads the latest update, I restart my computer, the Install update screen reaches 100 percent, then the system restarts, and after 20 seconds another screen comes up saying "Returning to the previous version of Windows"...and the system again restarts, when it boots to Desktop, message center says "Couldn't finish installing update".

    I don't know what the problem is, so if somebody has any suggestions I would appreciate it.

    Thank you.

    The latest Insider build is 16288. If you are an enrolled Insider you should get it via Windows Update.

    Why use wumt_x64.exe?

    Actually, its 12888.1. My system downloaded only 12773 version and I couldn't install it, but after I used Windows Mini Tool it updated to 12888.1 which is a Fall's Creators update.

    16288 not 12888!

    Not a chance. Latest official Fall' Creator Update Insider version is 16288. Official CU version is 15063. Any version 12888.1 would be an old Insider version which would have long expired if such a version ever existed.

    No listen to people that know what they post. MS does NOT go backwards in build numbers 14393 was released a long time ago.
