"Build about to expire" issue?


Recommended Posts

Just started getting the message "This build is about to expire 7/31/2020".  I am running build 20161.rs_prerelease3200627-1754.  The past 4 days of windows updates have only updated security definitions.  I am on the "Fast Ring / Dev" cycle, with no updated build showing.  Changing cycle to "Beta" brings nothing up either.  First time this has happened.  Any ideas?

I wouldn't worry about it, with the July 4th holiday and all it seems that an update is taking longer than normal https://betawiki.net/wiki/Windows_10_build_20161

 

Can you screenshot the error message and add to this topic? We might write something about it later.

You should be able to get build 20170, which arrived on Wednesday; however, that build isn't being offered to those with an AMD processor. Typically, the Windows Insider team releases new Dev channel builds on Wednesdays on a weekly basis. They skipped one week before 20170 though, but you should hopefully see one this week.

Yeah, do you have a AMD CPU?  If so you'll get the next build after 20170.

Yeah, I have an AMD.  How long do I have to wait for the next build, I wonder?  Still nothing showing in updates.

No new build out for anyone yet, probably this week, maybe tomorrow?  I think they release pretty much every Wednesday ?
