Microsoft released Windows 10 Insider Preview build 19037 today, making it the second build this week to be offered to both the Fast and the Slow rings. As usual, the build is from the 20H1 development branch, and also as usual, there's not a lot that's new.
The only thing that's changed is that PowerShell ISE is a Feature on Demand now, which means that while it's installed by default, you can remove it through settings.
Windows 10 20H1 is pretty much done, and it's totally done in terms of actual new features. It's been a couple of months since we've seen any new features in a build, and now the watermark has been removed and the version number has been changed to 2004.
Along with the note about the watermark, which has been there for a few builds, and the note about PowerShell ISE, which were both under fixes and improvements, there are still some known issues. Here's what's still broken:
- BattlEye and Microsoft have found incompatibility issues due to changes in the operating system between some Insider Preview builds and certain versions of BattlEye anti-cheat software. To safeguard Insiders who might have these versions installed on their PC, we have applied a compatibility hold on these devices from being offered affected builds of Windows Insider Preview. See this article for details.
- Some Insiders have reported when attempting to install recent builds, setup rolls back and returns error code 0xc1900101. In some cases, the update completes successfully on a subsequent attempt. If you’re experiencing the issue, please be sure to file feedback in the Feedback Hub.
- We’re looking into reports of the update process hanging for extended periods of time when attempting to install a new build.
- We’re looking into reports of certain external USB 3.0 drives not responding with Start Code 10 after they’re attached.
- We’ve received reports of the Optimize Drives app incorrectly reporting that optimization has never run on some devices.
Most of the known issues are pretty minor. The issue with anti-cheat software has been there since the 1903 preview days, and that relies on game vendors to update their games, so that issue isn't going away on the Windows side. The next two issues only have to do with installing the build.
As always, you can grab today build through Windows Update. If you're not on the Windows Insider Program just yet, you can sign up via the tab in Settings.
