Microsoft Keeps Rolling With Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 15063

All aboard the Windows 10 Creators Update hype train: Microsoft released Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 15063 for Fast ring members of the Windows Insider Program. Given the increasing rate at which these updates are being released, the last few builds' focus on bug fixes, and the Creators Update's looming Spring launch window, chances are good that Microsoft is preparing to release the feature-packed update to general Windows users.

Microsoft released Build 15060 on March 16; Build 15061 followed just a day later. Both focused on bug fixes, and less than a week later, Build 15063 handles a couple more problems. And we mean a literal couple--Microsoft said in a blog post that just two bugs were squashed in this release:

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.

That pales in comparison to the number of issues fixed in previous builds. Combine that with a lack of feature additions from these bug-focused builds and you have a strong case for arguing that the Windows 10 Creators Update will arrive sooner than later. Microsoft just has a few pernicious issues left to address, including a problem with broadcasting via certain hardware setups, apps crashing because of a misconfigured advertising ID, and so on.

These (known) issues might be the most frustrating when you're trying to update to Build 15063:

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.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.

All told, it's clear that these builds are leading up to the Windows 10 Creators Update. As always, if you want to learn more about features coming in that update, such as Game Mode, a smarter Cortana, and a new picture-in-picture feature, you can check out our reports on all of them and more. The full list of bug fixes for Build 15063 for mobile devices and known issues for both the PC and mobile builds can be found in Microsoft's blog post.

    Like it or not, win10 is still better than win7. Just disable what you don't like and stop complaining about stupid things and also stop being a hater because you think it makes you look "cool".

    Unfortunately part of the problem is you need to be a PC software surgeon to disable some of the more controversial stuff, like Cortana... only to have to do it again later. Get rid of Microsoft monitoring me for everything (to publicly "try to make another buck in selling me something.") Get rid of Microsoft trying to sell me on its re-skinned IE app now named Edge when I use another browser. 10 seems to have some nice features and all, but taking control away from me, and spying on my every move in the name of advertising are the flies in the proverbial soup.


    @freak777power, How do you know it is "still garbage?" Are you in on the testing or are you just making accusations without evidence again?

    One bad thing about being a Windows Insider Fast Ring Guinea pig, and if you are using an SSD, is that all the frequent build releases put a lot of wear on your SSD. After being in the fast ring for well over a year, I recently dropped down to the slow ring to cut down on the wear and tear. Glad to see them quickly progressing with the builds, though.

    I am in slow ring, I like the stability of build 15058 current insider ISO, fresh install smooth as butter but WAS NOT until FRESH INSTALL. Screw upgrade process never again.

    Better frame rates in most games I have been testing including Assassins Creed 1 through IV, BF4,BF1, COD Black Ops I - III, ARK, Borderlands series, Deus Ex series, list goes on have around 200 games through steam on an eSata drive @ 6gbs 3.5" 4TB HD. Currently using Assassins Creed series, BF4, and BF1 on Crucial X300 SSD as those are my favorite lol.

    Yes, I agree. I would MUCH rather do fresh installs than a simple upgrade to the next build. Wish Microsoft would make the ISOs available more often.

    really wish people would get off this "I love windows 7 bs" The shit is old and outdated. You got to install 3rd party shit just to get it to do stuff that windows 10 does out of the box.

    Probably not that much of an issue, but the frequent updates with multiple reboots can get a bit annoying. I'm on the Slow Ring too, but plan to drop to Release Preview when the Creators Update gets released. There will probably be some pretty wild experimentation while Microsoft figures out what to do after the Creators Update.
