First post here although I've been in read mode for many months. Now the deadline has passed I feel the need for some help and apologies for the length of the story.
I've been on the Insider Program for a few months and updated as new releases where made available on the Fast Ring. Not always successful but I got there in the end. 100240 proved a little tricky for some reason and updates, particularly Defender, often stalled or failed.
With no logic to the decision I decided to stop insider builds, using the Advanced Option in the settings window. Then tried to 're-connect' by clicking on the Get Started button. I think I hit the period when the servers where closed to further downloads since I got the usual 'Sorry!' message with error code 0x80310053
After the release date I went to the Insider web page and signed in and the download option was now available so I did this and updated my machine. However, the Get Started ( for insiders) is still producing the same error.
So, three questions:-
1. How do I know if I have the released version or not?
2. Is there anyway of forcing my version to allow me back onto the Insider Program Fast Ring
3. If my machine still wont let me back onto the Insider Program, will my version expire at any time?
FWIW: The laptop originally had XP installed but I wiped this prior to installing the first Insider Build.
Thanks in advance for your help
