Windows 10 build 17711 bugs

1. Install won’t complete

Some Insiders are still trying to download Windows 10 build 17711 but the install process often fails with an error code or simply gets stuck.

It downloads and tries to install until it reaches 24% and then it stops and starts all over again. It has down this continuously for over 24 hours.

2. Slow CPU

If your computer is slower than usual, maybe you should uninstall this build. Many users complained about their machines running very slowly after getting the latest Insider build.

I have just upgraded to Build 17711 and have noticed system is running very slow. I check task manager and it shows two cores and four logical processors. I have and INTEL quad chip and it should show four cores eight logical processors.

As a quick workaround, navigate to System Configuration(msconfig), click on Boot, go to Advanced options and uncheck Number of processors and Maximum memory, as shown in the screenshot below.

disable Number of processors maximum memory

3. Edge won’t work

Microsoft Edge is unavailable for many Insiders, whereas other browsers work just fine. Apparently, enabling IPv6 may help you solve the problem.

I updated to build 17711 last night before bed. I woke up this morning and tried to connect to the internet through Microsoft Edge but, as the title suggests, I could not connect. I am able to connect through Chrome […]

4. Microsoft Store is unresponsive

Other Insiders reported that the Microsoft Store app is completely unresponsive and nothing happens when they try to launch it.

Today I updated to build 17711, but Microsoft Store does NOT work properly! It runs and displays the windows as last, but by clicking right-top … to pull down “update and downloading” it does not show anything! Other pull down menu items also does NOT work. I confirmed this on my 2 PCs.
