    Well, download the appropriate .esd and create your own iso. That way, you only download once no matter what happens, and you can do an upgrade install or a clean install from the iso--your choice. On at least two occasions in the Insider's program I had to do that to upgrade-install the build as WU kept failing and reverting--my suspicions are of file corruption of some kind occurring through a WU attempt. You can completely eliminate that possibility by making your .iso--either from your own install.esd or an .esd downloaded from wzor.
    Actually, the first thing I do after the first download is copy off the esd to the Win7 installation I dual-boot with. I like to try the 'official' update route just for testing purposes. If the second download didn't install properly, you bet I would have gone to the iso!

    I agree Edwin.
    Seems to me that these small bugfixes could be supplied through a Cumulative Update.

    However the code being changed may require otherwise.
    The Insider's program is beta testing, not a commercial-build release. In the public release builds that's exactly what they do--release small patches.

    That's actually what I do, too... If the first WU upgrade attempt fails and reverts I then create an iso and upgrade from there. I think since 10/1/14 I've only had to skip a build once because I could not get it to install upgrade through WU via any method, iso included--but the ol' memory cells are a bit hazy as I can't remember when I started turning off secure boot to fix a bad WU install! The last few builds have upgraded fine with secure-boot enabled, though, but I still am somewhat conflicted about turning it off...!

    Went and did some quests today, and had to tell them on about 5 of them, how useless they were to me.
    Like the ones that have to do with MSN homepage. I just go there to see the news that interest me, but stuff like for MONEY\My Watchlist is useless to me, and with probably most people today, the poor(and middle class) are getting poorer, and have nothing to invest, duh!
    Or XBOX stuff, as I'm not a gamer. And a few other features, that I have never used & will not use, as I do not need them.
    But I did try the stuff(really).
    I pretty well uninstall what Apps give me that option. The Weather App I use. XBOX App too, as I own an XBOX One. I use that redone classic Windows 7 games installer to get back the old solitaire games etc.

    I did that too but the newer games do have better sound and graphics. I am almost tempted to upgrade to the premium version to get rid of the advertisements.

    The irony is you can't get those XBOX branded games, on the XBOX. They aren't listed in the XBOX store.

    My take on that is. If you originally clean installed the Insider build, without ever doing an upgrade from a qualifying OS, when you leave the insider program activation will time out. If you did an upgrade from a qualifying OS, and got a digital entitlement, then leave, your OK. The original Insider builds could be run from a clean install with no need to do the free upgrade. Once the official Consumer build was released though, they changed the rules. Insider builds fall under the free upgrade rules. They have the same activation requirements as the consumer release.
    The date point was a mistake on my part.

    I was not discussing right to leave and remain activated - it is well known that you need a valid key or digital licence to leave Insider program and remain activated.

    My discussion was about the fact that you can leave the recent Insider versions now (no watermark versions) without reinstalling everything. You could not do that with the earlier watermarked versions - you would have to clean install old version and reinstall everything.

    I did that on my wife's computer. She can spend hours just playing the classic solitaire.

    I put Chess, FreeCell, Hearts, Mahjong, Solitaire and Spider Solitaire from Windows 7 on 10. They all run perfectly. Each new build kills the shortcuts, though.

    Possible 950XL Continuum glitch.. (??)

    From Start, go into All Apps - then select Storage.. it works fine..
    Then go into Taskview and close Settings - the Storage icon remains on the Taskbar
    ..even after closing Continuum, when I return - icon is still there on the taskbar..

    - error is repeatable and only a complete shutdown will correct it..
