    Windows 10 Pro (32-bit) Insider 16291

    Yes, you *can* still register an email address as an Insider


    I've seen a couple of comments saying you can't register as an Insider, but I just wanted to say I've done it today and it still works, just in case it helps someone.

    What you can't do (well not officially; I imagine there are workarounds) is activate a new build following the temporary change announced here:

We’ll make ISOs available again in the future, but for now we ask you to upgrade your current build via Windows Update once the next build is released.

    Specifically, this means that in the next 24hrs:
    •Builds 10162 and 10166 will no longer be offered over Windows Update, and whatever build you’re on will show as “up to date” if you check for new builds.
    •ISOs for build 10162 will be taken down from the Home page - Windows Insider Program site and prerelease keys will no longer activate builds.
    In my case, I had a VM installed ages ago which only had a local account, and I wanted to add a different MSA (which didn't have Insider status before today) so it would pick up the upgrade to 10240.

    The Insider webpage let me register and join the Insider programme and the Notifications saying I need to do things to keep getting Insider builds have gone away, and it can now 'see' 10240.

    I think things changed in the last few hours. Now only mobiles can be integrated in the Insider Program.

    Home page - Windows Insider Program

    NOTE: The public release of Windows 10 is near. So we are not integrating new computers in Windows Insider Program. You can still register and begin using Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview. We will inform you as soon as there is a new preview version of Insider for you to try on your computer.

    That's what the page said when I registered.

    Although you can't activate a new computer, you can still register a new email address as an Insider (for one thing the Mobile builds are still available as you say).

    This then means I could add an MSA as an Insider to a computer where it hadn't got one previously. This worked and I've got rid of the Fix Me message.
