    Basically you an do just about anything with them except install non store programs which means malware etc cant install - (I tried it).

    Not saying this version will be of any use /good. But this is what this thread is about, new versions /Testing etc -- its easy to knock something if you don't try it and NO ONE is forcing anyone to install it.

    Thanx. My work desktop on slow ring just updated to 16278 . My wifes's laptop not on any ring is doing an update but not sure until it finishes what version it will be. No doubt the current release version.

    16288 is now available (fast ring only). On 2 machines here it is initializing and then I get a message "An update is being prepared for your device but it's not quite ready yet. We'll keep trying or you can try again now". Retrying just brings up the same message. The fact that it is happening on 2 machines makes me think it is not a problem with my environment. Anyone else experiencing this?

    As a side note, I noticed the latest Cumulative Update today had a bit of an effect on Edge until it sorted its self out.

    Are you aware this is the thread for the pre-release versions of Windows 10?

    16288 and 16362 both installed with no probs. The download for 16288 is now fixed - you don't need the workaround.

    To Late Already did the reg change, its been downloading and installing since earlier this morning. Not exactly quick either. But in fairness all the Office updates were being installed as well.
