For the past two Windows 10 Preview builds, Microsoft has warned Insiders about potential installation issues. As installation issues are one of the major problems in both Windows 10 and 10 Preview, it’s likely Microsoft is aware of the situation.

Ever since Windows 10 Preview was introduced in 2015, almost every build caused certain problems for Insiders. Even though the struggle is real for Windows 10 users, Microsoft somehow always overlooked the problem — until now.

If you take a look at the announcement blog posts of two previous Windows 10 Preview builds, you’ll notice that Microsoft lists installation problems under ‘known issues’. On top of that, Redmond also provides a couple of workarounds for Insiders to solve potential flaws.

This is a great improvement on Microsoft’s side. For almost two years, users had to deal with these problems on their own, usually looking for alternative solutions.

As Windows 10 is presented as service and the most important part of the idea are its updates, having everything in place is essential. Therefore, we wonder what took Microsoft so long to finally start addressing update problems.

Of course, the Windows 10 user base is huge, and servers are usually overloaded whenever a new update or build is released. So, we need to have that in mind, as well. However, that’s still not a hundred percent legitimate excuse for issues when installing every single build.

It’s still too early to make any predictions on the future of Windows 10 update issues. However, it’s quite important for users that Microsoft now hears the reports. We hope the company will carry on with this and find more solutions for update issues or better: prevent them in the first place.

Since the Creators Update is near, it’s very unlikely that it will go without any installation issues. But who know, maybe we’ll get to the point where Windows 10 users and Insiders will finally stop worrying about update problems.
