    Anyone successfully tested "MyCortana" app on windows insider builds?

    "MyCortana" is a free app that allows users to rename Cortana. Instead of "Hey Cortana!" you can call her "My darling!", "Mr Spock" or whatever you want. I used it on my original Windows 10 Home (english) without problems. I tried to use on insider builds, but i get a lot of .net framework errors and it does not run. My builds are not english. I wonder if the problem is the language, .net framework (maybe incompatible) or something missing in the insider builds compared with the original version. I tried to contact the author, but got no answer. Maybe someone here has tried to use the app on insider builds...

    Thanks Josey.
    If I am not wrong, "MyCortana" is actually the only app that allows to rename Cortana. I was very satisfied, and now I regret not being able to use it on the Insiders Builds. It is a portable application (no need to install it). You can easily find the download link on Google.

    It's a Sourceforge project: MyCortana.

    I don't use Cortana but if this can be made to work I might give it a try again.

    I'm currently on 14393.969. Creator update should be released soon, like maybe tomorrow so I will soon be on 15063.

    MyCortana works on insiders builds

    I discovered that the problem was related to the voice recognition. I downloaded the English Language Pack, English voice recognition and MyCortana perfectly works on my build 16176. Unfortunately English is not my home language...
