Microsoft adds six known issues to Windows 10 build 17063

Windows 10 Insider Preview build 17063 really is the gift that keeps on giving. Originally released on December 19 with a ton of new features, Microsoft added three known issues three days later. It would seem as though Insiders filed a lot of bugs over the holiday break though, as yet another six known issues were added today.

If you're still thinking about installing build 17063, you'll want to be aware of the following:

  • Some PCs will bugcheck (GSOD) when entering into Connected Standby.

  • When you open Task View immediately after an upgrade, Timeline may not be visible. If you encounter this, wait 15-30min and try launching Task View again.

  • We’re investigating an issue where some Bluetooth devices don’t work on this build and Device Manager shows error 43 for these drivers.

  • The Settings app may crash on certain pages if the Settings window isn’t big enough. Windows Update Settings is one of the pages impacted. If you’re experiencing this, maximizing the Settings window (so it’s full screen) will resolve it.

  • In certain cases, USB devices with unreliable connections may cause bugchecks (GSOD) on PCs.

  • Attention developers: Build 17063 has an issue running Linux containers with Docker Community Edition for Windows (edge) on many machines. The docker pull or docker run commands will fail with an error “Not enough memory resources are available to complete this operation”. We’re working on a fix for an upcoming Windows Insider build but you can work around the problem now with these steps:

    1. Be sure “Docker for Windows” is running, then right-click the whale icon in the notification area and choose “settings”.

    2. On the General tab, uncheck “Enable Linux containers on Windows”.

    3. Next a dialog “Switch to Standard mode (Linux VM / Windows daemon” will pop up. Click OK.

    4. Wait for the whale icon to turn white.

Obviously, these issues may be impactful for you, and you might want to just wait for the next build to hit the Fast ring. Insider chief Dona Sarkar has confirmed, however, that there won't be any new builds this week, so we can hope for next week.

One thing that isn't a known issue in build 17063 is the security flaw that was found recently in just about all chipsets and operating systems, now called Spectre and Meltdown. This was already fixed in the most recent builds, so Insiders were protected by the time it was announced.
