Known issues in Windows 10 Insider Preview build 11099 for PCs

Microsoft released its latest Windows 10 Insider Preview for PCs, build 11099, for those on the Fast ring today. The new build includes a welcome fix for the broken progress dialog bar when copying or deleting files via File Explorer, an issue that was introduced in the last PC preview release, build 11082.

This latest build comes with its own list of known issues, but thankfully, it's not a very long one:

  • Log on for devices using Citrix XenDesktop may be broken. It is recommended that Insiders that use XenDesktop skip this flight by moving to the Slow ring.
  • Applications that depend on Adobe Flash may crash upon launch. This will affect some version[s] of Skype, QQ, WeChat, etc. This does not affect Microsoft Edge of Internet Explorer.
  • With this build, defaults for some applications will be reset. Music & Video will default to Windows Media Player. This can be reconfigured opening Cortana or Search and searching for "Choose default apps by file type" to open the correct settings page."

A couple of those known issues may well prove to be show-stoppers for some users, who may wish to follow Microsoft's advice by switching to the Slow ring until the company can fix them.

Microsoft has said that those in the Fast ring can look forward to more regular Insider Preview releases this year, but it has also warned that these more rapid releases are likely to include more bugs.
