Windows 10 build 17093 issues
1. Download and install won’t start
To start off, install issues occur much rarely than on previous builds. However, the most common problem is the error message that informs Insiders they’re already running the latest build version.
I am on Insider build 17083 […] and now when I try to get the latest build (17093) it says I’m up to date and no updates are available. When I check my Windows Insider section, under Get Insider Builds it says (in the Insider level area) “Your organization manages Insider Preview Builds through a telemetry Group Policy setting.” Also the “Fix Me” box is showing but greyed out so I can’t click it to fix whatever the issue is.
2. VPN won’t work
If you use VPN for work, you should skip this build. Some Insiders report that VPN connections are unavailable after installing this build version.
I updated my PC to 17093 last night without incident. I looked in the known issues and bug fixes. Under fixes, it says the store VPN issue from 17083 was fixed. I use the sonicwall vpn from the store to set up my vpn for work. I still have trouble connecting. […] Nothing works. The first time I tried to connect I got an error: 407 invalid session IND8VGqtj7o6ZVMO9wusrleWVbtQ1mWjtL87zRa4Cus

Certain apps may crash when you try to open them. Most likely, this is due to compatibility issues between the OS and the app.

4. Battery status won’t update
While this is not a major problem, it can sometimes become quite annoying since it forces users to estimate how much battery time they’ve got left.
This problem has been ongoing now for over 4 builds. The battery status is not updating at all. It remains stuck at whatever charge percentage it found when last hard booted. It will detect and display the status of the power-in port as to whether or not it is plugged in.
5. Slow Internet speed
If your Internet connection is slower than usual, you’re not the only one. Other Insiders also complained about this problem.
