Windows Desktop: 17017

Those in the Fast Ring are now able to update to 17017, which begins the Red Stone 4 series of build. Not a whole lot of new features, numerous fixes. As usual – check the known issues to see if there is a show stopper for you!

Known issues

  • If you are missing some Feature-on-Demand (FOD) packages such as Windows Media Player, please see this Feedback Hub post: https://aka.ms/Rsrjqn.

  • Using a swipe gesture with touch to dismiss notifications from the Action Center is currently not working. We’re investigating – for now you’ll need to use the clear all button, or use mouse/keyboard.

  • If you RDP into a PC running this build with certain GPU configurations, when you go to sign in to the PC locally it will appear stuck at a black screen with only the cursor available. If you let it sit for a bit, the PC will eventually recover and you’ll be able to use it normally.

    ATTENTION IS ANY ONE ELSE GROWING TIRED OF THE TIME REQIRED AT THESE BUILDS AND LOOSING VALUABLE CONSTRUCTIVE NEEDED WORK TIME BECAUSE OF ALL OF THE ERRORS AND FAILED BUILDS. (TOTAL WIPE OUTS). Here is the deal. I have heard that 15063 has been scraped. Reverting back to previous build. I have now had 3 unsuccessful downloads of 15063 attempted by Microsoft. Resulting in a staggering number of PC crashes Closer to 15 + crashes. Thanks to 15063 failed attempts. All attempts at Microsoft updates ended at 67% updated then stalls out (FAILS). Please refrain from hyping any updates anymore. Very few have worked flawlessly. Say maybe, zero, one? You tell me my people. MICROSOFT. Since there are far to many errors to even begin to study them. Only if you have 16 hrs. a day of non stop research. For days on ends. HOW MANY PEOPLE OUT THERE FEEL THAT BEING AN INSIDER IS FAR MORE TIME CONSUMING FOR US AVERAGE 9 to 5 workers. If your 15063 installed flawlessly then good for u. If not then jump on my bandwagon. Seen Windows Insider Preview comments to them and let them know your frustration. IF SO TELL THEM CAL-BOY sent you. Sweet. P.S. I am serious never buy the hype Microsoft has been feeding us INSIDERS. Does that word not reek of HYPE. Seriously.
