My guess is the zPC Settings is going to replace the PC Settings, being now a "training ground". When you look it now it has placeholder for OEM info and so on; I think in some future upgrade build it will replace the PC Settings.
MS merged some of Windows Phone into this build. zPC settings will eventually become just PC settings. I ran through both to see if there was any inconsitentencies, the only thing I came across was Privacy - mic and camera would not stick OFF in either-Feedback reported
I hope this build gets replaced soon, it feels unstable.
Bing: can't figure out where to stop it's use (did in the previous bld)
Fagmentation seems higher than Win8. I'm wondering if the Phone imports have a negative effect on Disk (phones use solid state devices).
There are other minor things:
Home is an empty folder
Trends on taskbar search (I know Jimbo reported this in the previous bld, but I didn't see it - maybe Bing off related)
Systray: a few icons end up in my temp folder. Miles reported battery last build (resolved in VMware by adding power to his machine). I have not researched the GUIDs
A few others that I can't recall. They're minor though.
Feedback was given on all issues.
On a few occasions, the vhdx file would fragment on the physical partition. This pushed the file to the end of the partition. I believe the dynamic file could not expand any further, there was an entry in events, so you might check there. I'm sorry but I don't have the exact event.
I haven't had any issues, but RAM allocation and/or reporting seems to work differently in the Linux version:
- LM17 normally uses ~450MB
- W10TP Task Manager reports that it is using ~650MB (it starts at ~900MB and then drops)
- Total RAM usage reported by LM17 is ~750MB
When I run VMs using VMware Wortkstation 7 on W7, the memory allocated to the VM is instantly deducted from my total available RAM.
I don't see a whole lot of changes :/
Or any for that matter
One thing that's different that's noticeable,
I have two monitors 1 1600-900 main display and secondary mostly for browsers that's 1600-1200,
Using a 1600-900 image and fit used to keep the same size on monitor 2 and have a black area on top and bottom
Now it stretches to fit the 1200 height :/
Oops looks like it switched to fill ?
zPC Settings is probably the reason for double profile pic on login screen...
You definitely shouldn't be experiencing "Low RAM" warnings.
What do the Host and VM Task Managers say about your RAM usage when you see the message?
Perhaps there was a glitch when you created the VM and it is corrupted somehow.
Have you tried creating a new VM?
We had VM issues when I did my Networking course (using VMware Workstation 7).
To avoid them, we created empty virtual HDDs and then installed Windows as if we were using real PCs with empty HDDs.
I still build my VMs this way.
Maybe VMware Player glitched during its installation.
