As has been the theme recently, after a mid-morning tease about Build 14965, Dona Sarkar and the Windows Insider team have finally pushed out the new build to eager Windows Insiders. Of course, the build is not perfect, so please keep these known issues in mind before you install it to your Windows 10 device.
- Double-clicking on an Excel document to open it from File Explorer will crash Microsoft Excel. The workaround is to open the document from within Excel.
- Microsoft Studios games like Microsoft Sudoku, Jigsaw, Minesweeper, Taptiles, and Treasure Hunt may freeze at the splash screen on launch.
- If you used the previous ‘date change’ workaround to update to Build 14951 or Build 14955: Please don’t use it any longer! The Microsoft account (MSA) ticket on your device needs to expire and then you’ll be offered today’s build. If you changed your date by 30 years… you’ll want to do a device reset.
- You will be unable to install additional languages, keyboards, and speech packs on your phone for the next few weeks. If you have existing languages, keyboards, and speech packs installed – they will carry over when you update to new builds. You just can’t install any new ones. If you do a hard reset of your phone on these builds – you will also be unable to install additional languages, keyboards, and speech packs. You can use Windows Device Recovery Tool to go back to Windows Phone 8.1 or Windows 10 Mobile, install any languages, keyboards, and speech packs you need and then update to the latest build in the Fast ring as a workaround.
It once again seems like the list is quite short this week, so if you happen to notice any issues not mentioned by Microsoft above, do shoot us a comment in the section below. Happy Downloading!Further reading: build 14965, Redstone 2, RS2, Windows 10 Creators Update, Windows 10 Insider
