Windows 10: Announcing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 15007 for PC and Mobile Insider
WOW, what a jump in build numbers.
Thanks for the reply. Yes I have had a lot of DCOM errors since I started receiving IP-builds. At first I tried to fix them all, as it made my computer a lot more stable, but now I just ignore them all. Too much hard work and in my opinion is more MS responsibility to make sure all parameters are set correctly before releasing Windows than the users.
Maybe not best place to ask (and complain) but My Lumia 640 started acting up with 15007 and I had to reset it. Couldn't receive SMS messages and bs like that. After the reset and synchronizing I started downloading APPs I had before, first few installed OK but rest and new ones just wouldn't download and install. Error after some time of it sitting on "Working" = "Something happened on our end". Did Store die or what ?
Everybody ???...Drastic Challenges ???....Do not include me in your summing up.....more or less trouble free on 15xxx series.
As for predicting future events "very bumpy ride"....Clairvoyance being your speciality ?
Some system information programs don't work for me. Speedfan, no display for instance, no data on it. Astra, same thing can't even close them normally but have to go thru task manager. There's bunch of other programs that do not work any more. Tried troubleshooting but no dice. Some programs that worked before even get stuck wit Windows Installer.
While main body of Windows is not compromised at all and is very stable (not a single GSOD) and as fast as before, small things can also make using it somewhat aggravating.
Just few minutes ago I got a message to answer about "Icon placing after resolution change". Had to give them clear 0 on that one because they don't stay even after restart and I have to use DesktopOK program. In my mind that means the are aver of that and they did some changes. Hopefully they'll return free will with next update.
One new thing I like. Message that new update is available pops up from right side of screen and Update asks to download and install. Neat feature if you ask me, no more missed updates. (it's set to manual here).
15007 now seems to work better in VirtualBox 5.1.14. WDDM display driver is not crashing now and the installation seems stable provided Paravirtualization is set to Legacy.
Nothing that is too drastic or challenging for an Insider to overcome then?
No, not really, it's just as usable as before. Since it's insider version I expected even more problems. AMD and Realtek release new drivers regularly but SW developers may be lagging behind. It's their obligation to follow OS their programs are meant for. App developers seem to be doing better job, didn't find single APP that refused to run.
Speaking of APPs, did anybody notice how large base of available APPs have grown ? Their quality is improving too. I was disappointed at the beginning (W8) and W10 but now it's getting up there with best of them.
Mike, I'm half asleep...how did you set it to manual to get those pop-ups? Thanks, TC
To tell you frankly, no idea, I thought it's just a new feature. I had windows set to manual "Check for updates" ever since beginning and this is an update from clean install of 15002. It wasn't happening in 15002, that's how much I know. It's also synced with my MS account.
Ps. That flag stays and doesn't disappear like other messages until clicked on and it brings you to Update in settings.
Maybe this? Near bottom of first page?
