    Windows Insider Program - Diagnostic Data Shared from Non-Test System


    I was looking at joining the Insider program but wanted to know what I'm signing up for, specifically in regard to sharing diagnostic data. I understand that in joining the program, you agree to share detailed diagnostic and usage information with Microsoft. If I join the program and install a preview build on a virtual machine, am I only agreeing to share data from the VM installation or will my primary machine also have the detailed diagnostic and usage information shared? Both would be utilizing the same MS account, but I could create a new account to keep things separate if I have to.

    Since the optional diagnostics settings are per Windows installation, only your VM would have that setting on.

    You would have to do it in the opposite order, though. Install Windows in the VM first. Then join the insider program from the Windows running in the VM. Only the VM would be sharing diagnostic data.
