    It was explained earlier that Microsoft made a mistake, whodathunkit, the fbl versions are only available on the Microsoft network, not available for the tech preview...hence the error...

    Yep. I see now in reading that news update that they did dun goofed. Go figure. But then again i guess we cant expect everything to be perfect now can we considering that this is only a test of 10 and there are plenty of design and other bugs and kinks to be ironed out.

    It's just part of the Win10 Technical Preview testing - you think only users break stuff when they test it?

    Oh and I found out that when I changed the registry setting from FBL_ASWOME1501 to fbl_release the message goes away.
