Announcing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 15063 for PC and Mobile

Hello Windows Insiders!

Today we are excited to be releasing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 15063 for PC and Mobile to Windows Insiders in the Fast ring.

Other changes, improvements, and fixes for PC

  • We fixed a reliability issue from Build 15061 resulting in Microsoft Edge hanging and becoming completely unresponsive.
  • We fixed an issue for Insiders where the localized files and registry keys associated with any additional language packs on the system would not be installed after enabling .NET Framework 3.5.

Other changes, improvements, and fixes for Mobile

  • We fixed the bug causing a number of inbox apps to fail to launch (such as Store) and also preventing any app updates from the Store from working. Thank you all for sending us feedback around this.
  • We fixed the bug causing background tasks to not run in the background like they should such as OneDrive’s camera roll sync feature. Background tasks should be working again as expected and your camera roll will sync to OneDrive again.
  • We fixed the issue where in some cases you may lose your call, text, and email history may be lost if your device experiences an unexpected reboot.
  • Speech Packs should download and install normally.
  • We fixed an issue for Insiders with certain cars resulting in connection failures after pairing Bluetooth.
  • We fixed an issue where replacing the default APN for LTE on the phone wouldn’t work.

Known issues for PC

  • The upgrade path from the Windows 10 Anniversary Update (Build 14393) to this Windows 10 Creators Update build is not yet live and will be live tomorrow morning.
  • You will be unable to download new (additional) language packs on this build. Currently installed language packs will not be impacted. These will go live later this week.
  • If your PC fails to install this build on reboot with the error 8024a112, reboot manually again. If your PC appears to hang during the reboot, power your PC off and back on and the install will proceed.
  • Some Insiders have reported seeing this error “Some updates were cancelled. We’ll keep trying in case new updates become available” in Windows Update. If you encounter it, please try deleting the following registry key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionWindowsUpdateAuto UpdateRequestedAppCategories8b24b027-1dee-babb-9a95-3517dfb9c552

See this forum post for more details.

  • Some apps and games may crash due to a misconfiguration of advertising ID that happened in a prior build. Specifically, this issue affects new user accounts that were created on Build 15031. The misconfiguration can continue to persist after upgrading to later builds. The ACL on the registry key incorrectly denies access to the user and you can delete the following registry key to get out of this state:


  • There is a bug where if you need to restart your PC due to a pending update like with the latest Surface firmware updates, the restart reminder dialog doesn’t pop up. You should check Settings > Update & security > Windows Update to see if a restart is required.
  • [GAMING] Certain hardware configurations may cause the broadcast live review window in the Game bar to flash Green while you are Broadcasting. This does not affect the quality of your broadcast and is only visible to the Broadcaster.

Known issues for Mobile

  • Updating from the Windows 10 Anniversary Update (Build 14393) directly to this build won’t work. There will be an extra hop required to get to this build. If you use WDRT to go re-flash your device and join the Fast ring, you will not be offered this build and instead offered Build 15055. Once you’re on Build 15055, your device will find Build 15063 and take the update then.
  • Some users are reporting that pages are constantly reloading or refreshing, especially while they are in the middle of scrolling them in Microsoft Edge. We’re investigating.

We know the builds have been fast and furious lately. We appreciate your enthusiasm and excitement and we absolutely love co-creating this product we love with all of you.

Keep hustling,
Dona <3

i7 4790K. Excellent overclocker and undervolter.

5.0GHz @ 1.37v [see attached picture]
Stable under Chrome, Desktop, CPU Z Benchmark but not rendering/gaming. With a bit more voltage and under water this could definitely be a stable everyday OC (for those who don’t give a fig about chip longevity).

Phone Emulator + Containers + VMs + Networking == Finally working!

I have had a problem for a little while now – the problem is that on my personal laptop I want to use:

  • Visual Studio with the Windows Phone Emulator
  • The Hololens emulator
  • Windows Containers
  • Linux Containers (through Docker for Windows)
  • My virtual machines

However, all of these solutions keep on tripping over each other.  Specifically, they keep on tripping over each other when it comes to networking configuration.  I have spent the last couple of months complaining to the various teams involved in this – and I finally have it all working!  Yay!

There were three key things that came together to make this all work:

  1. Improved guidance around Container and VM networking

    The networking team has been doing a great job of updating the NAT and Container networking documentation.  If you read these documents a couple of months ago – I would highly recommend you revisit them as there is a ton of new information in there.

  2. New installation experience for Windows Containers on Windows 10

    Another thing that has changed in the last couple months is the process for getting Windows Containers up and running on Windows 10.  Specifically – we now utilize Docker for Windows to get you up and running.  Not only does this make it much easier to get things setup – it means you get very clear error messages when things go wrong.  In my case – I received this handy error message:

    NAT Error

  3. Learning about XDECleanup

    It turns out that my problem was that I had a stale network configuration from the Windows Phone emulator.  Handily, the Windows Phone Emulator team ship a tool to help out here – XDECleanup.  If you open an administrative command prompt and run “C:Program Files (x86)Microsoft XDE<version>XdeCleanup.exe” – it will delete and recreate all networking associated with the Windows Phone Emulator.

For me – updating my container setup to use Docker for Windows combined with running XDECleanup finally got me to a world where all my virtualization based development tools happily work side by side.

Windows 10 Tip: Set active hours so your PC won’t restart while you’re working

It’s called active hours. Active hours are a time range you can set to let your PC know when you’re usually using your device, so it won’t restart automatically during those times.

Here’s how to set up active hours:

Select the Start button and select Settings (or use Windows key + I), then “Update & security” and select “Change active hours.”

To set Active hours, select the Start button and select Settings (or use Windows key + I), then Update & security and select Change active hours.

Choose the start time and end time, and then select “Save.”

To confirm your changes, choose the start time and end time, and then select Save.
