Windows 10 Build 16296 is out for the Fast Ring

Microsoft today released yet another Windows 10 Insider Preview version. Windows 10 build 16296 which represents the upcoming Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, code name "Redstone 3", is available now for Fast Ring Insiders. The "Skip Ahead" version is not available. This build comes with a number of improvements and fixes. Let's see what's new.

The change log features the following improvements and updates.

  • We fixed an issue where Hyper-V couldn’t create a VM on 3rd party network storage.
  • We fixed an issue where for the first few minutes after clean installing a non-English build many inbox app names might unexpectedly appear with English app names.
  • We fixed an issue where gaming apps using WebView with heavy use of HTML canvas might have unexpectedly had very low FPS in recent flights.

IMPORTANT NOTE: You will be unable to install *new*/additional language packs on this build. Pre-existing language packs (language packs you’ve installed previously) will carry over and work just fine.

The list of known issues is not available.

  • This build has the fix for the bug that was causing some Surface Pro 3 devices to end up in a “unbootable” state where the Windows OS will not load and it appears to be stuck on a “spinning dots” screen. After installing this build, Surface Pro 3 devices should no longer get into this state. If you have a Surface Pro 3 in a bad state – follow the instructions on this forum post to get back up and running.
  • We fixed an issue on Dutch builds where explorer could go into a crash loop if an app-requested downloads notification popped up from OneDrive.
  • We fixed an issue where expand.exe couldn’t expand CABs that contained Japanese characters in the file name.
  • We fixed a race condition that could result in window content being transparent (but showing the window frame) or stale after unlocking your desktop.
  • We fixed an issue resulting in some Insiders seeing error 0x800B010C when attempting to upgrade to the last few flights.
