If you are a developer, Microsoft recommends you do not upgrade...
Microsoft has released a new build of Windows 10 to Insiders but if you are a developer, the company is saying that you should not update at this time. There are currently a few issues with Visual Studio 2015 that will prevent you from being able to use the software properly.
The two issues are noted below and as you can see, they create a barrier to developing Universal apps. The emphasis below was added by Microsoft:
- The emulators will not boot and you won’t be able to deploy a Windows Universal app to the Mobile emulator.
- The XAML designer in VS and Blend will crash when opened.
- If you are a developer using these tools today to develop Windows Universal apps and need this functionality to work – we recommend switching to the Slow ring until we release a patch to fix these issues.
