Windows 10 LogoMicrosoft has published the new Windows 10 Preview Build 11102 on its fast ring for insiders. Users who want to download and install it should, however, take heed. Microsoft itself has stated gamers and people using accessibility features will encounter problems when using the new build. If one doesn't want to live with certain bugs, one ought to wait until the next version appears. The newest build is prone to crash when switching a game from window to full-screen mode, or changing the resolution. A bug in the Windows graphics stack is apparently to blame. Specifically, the bug can make itself noticed when running "The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt", "Fallout 4", "Tomb Raider", "Assassin's Creed: Syndicate" and "Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain". Microsoft states that precisely these top tier titles are affected. However, it is likely that the bug also will make more games crash.

Furthermore, Build 11102 can crash or become unstable when using Magnifier, Narrator and third-party software for users with physical impairments. Users who need text to speech should also refrain from installing the new build. According to Microsoft, the bugs will be stomped out in the next build. However, there are more bugs. Right after the login the latest Windows 10 build can show a "WSClient.dll" error. Again, Microsoft is working on a fix. A workaround is available through the command line, provided one has administrator rights. In the command line, enter: 'schtasks/delte/TN „\Microsoft\Windows\WS\WSRefreshBannedAppsListTask“ /F'.

On some systems, an error message may also state the WiFi card isn't compatible with Windows 10. As a workaround, Microsoft here recommends installing the latest driver. The Redmond company name as a further, well-known problem. The preview build  11102 10 doesn't display the Connect button does not appear in the Action Center. Just like in the previous build there is a problem with the cache of the insider hub, new content is loaded properly. Should one be able to live with the various bugs, which are quite normal for preview versions, one will obtain an outdated history in the Edge browser. Right-clicking on the forward and backward buttons shows recently visited sites, and one can surf over to them directly. Microsoft calls this feature Travel Log. More changes are likely to have been carried out behind the scenes.

We wish Windows insiders a lot of fun with trying the new build out!
