    Keith, VM should not be a problem. It runs in my VM but I shut it off. Was pretty useless.

    If you're not in the US, that could be a reason why. Cortana's not that fully developed out just yet.

    Also, do make sure your mic is all set up and is at a good recoding volume for best effect.

    I am in Canada but Cortana worked. That's because I select US region whenever I install W10. Not because of Cortana. Just a preference. I already shut Cortana up.

    Had to post this. If you think Cortana can be a bit stubborn, here's how an error event from MS is worded! Build 10049.

    I'm on build 10049 and Cortana hasn't improved much. I still have problems getting Cortana to start by voice command. If it doesn't get any better by the time Win 10 goes final I'll definitely be turning it off.

    Maybe he means "stifle", as in Archie Bunker....
