Windows Desktop: 17074

A new Windows 10 build heads to the fast ring. This time, it’s build 17074. As with the last flight, there is a block for AMD processors at this time. Be sure to read the known issues before installing, in case there is a show stopper in there for your specific case.

Known issues

  • When users try to create a Microsoft Edge InPrivate window from inside a Mixed Reality headset, a regular window will get created instead. Users won’t be able to use InPrivate inside Mixed Reality in this build. InPrivate on desktop is not affected.

  • We’re preparing for the inclusion of OpenSSH Server as a deployment mechanism in Developer Mode. However the UI code got checked in ahead of the components, and so while there is a “Use OpenSSH (Beta) for remote deployment” switch in the UI under Settings, it won’t work, and turning it on will break remote deployment to that device until the switch is turned off.

  • When you open Task View immediately after an upgrade, Timeline may not be visible. If you encounter this, wait 15-30 minutes and try launching Task View again.

  • The Windows Defender icon is missing from the systray, even if it shows as enabled in Settings.

  • Certain devices may hang on the boot screen after upgrading. If this happens to you, go into the BIOS and disable virtualization.

  • Apps that come preinstalled with Windows may fail to update in the Store with error 0x80073CF9.

  • Audio playback from Microsoft Edge is sometimes unexpectedly muted. A workaround is to minimize Edge, count to three, and then unminimize.

  • Upgrading to 17063 or later builds sometimes causes Settings / Privacy / Microphone, Camera, etc. to flip to “disabled”, which breaks camera and microphone access. A workaround is to manually turn them back on.

    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.
