Microsoft has just released the new build 15025 for Windows 10 Preview. The core purpose of the new build is to serve as a premier build for this week’s Bug Bash, that Microsoft announced a few days ago.

However, besides a lot of bug fixes, and a couple of new features, build 15025 also caused some issues to Insiders who installed it. We’ve wandered Microsoft’s forums today, in order to find a problem reports that Microsoft didn’t originally include in its “Known issues” list.

So, if you yet have to install this build, read through this article, to see what you can expect from the latest Windows 10 Preview release.

Windows 10 Preview build 15025 issues

Unable to download the new build

As usual, we start off our report with the reported installation issues. Why? Well, because that the problem basically every new Windows 10 Preview build brings. Build 15025 is not an exception, as a few users reported they’re unable to acquire the new build through Windows Update:

  • “I am running Build 15019. Updates are available and says downloading updates at 0% I am trying to get 15025 build.”
  • “I am getting an error code  0x800700b7 when attempting to install build 15025 on a 64 bit computer.”

Unfortunately, we don’t have a confirmed solution for this issue. However, if you’ve experienced any installation problems, you can try with some of the usual solutions, like resetting Windows Update, running the WUReset script, or disabling your antivirus program.

Settings app crashes

Although not directly related to downloading the new update, there are some additional issues that may prevent you from normally installing it. For example, one user has reported on the forums that as soon as he opens the Update & security section of the Settings app, the whole app crashes:

“After updating to build 15025 when I go to “Update & security” the whole Settings app crashes. I can use other settings like System or Devices.”

Edge favorites missing

The new build didn’t bring any new features or improvements for Windows 10’s default browser, Microsoft Edge, but it did cause a few problems to some users. For example, one user complained that his favorites are missing from Microsoft Edge:

“In build 15014, my favorites were duplicating, now they are missing entirely in this build. Attempted to restore them by re-importing using the Chrome and Firefox options, yet was unsuccessful. Please provide a resolution soon.”

That’s about it for the most common problems in Windows 10 Preview build 15025. As you can see, the new build isn’t as troublesome as some previously-released builds, which is definitely a positive thing.
