The first major update to Windows 10 since its release is finally here, and there are already plenty of problems being reported by users. As always, we’re here to report on these various issues and to offer a space for all those affected.

As you know, the Fall Update brings Windows 10 to version 1511, build 10586, so if you have that installed, then it means you’re running the latest and greatest. Do have a look at a very brief FAQ for some major questions you might be having on this.

Windows 10 version 1511 bugs and problems

As always, be aware that this is still a work on progress, so if you know of any particular bugs and other problems related to this version, then go ahead and leave your comment in the section at the end. We will do our best to update as frequently as possible, but your help is appreciated, as well. So, here’s what’s we’ve been able to find so far:

  • After installing Windows 10 1511 update all my desktop icons flash about once a second. Deleting all the iconcache_*.db files did not fix it.
  • Why does Windows take such a long time to load the Device and Printers window? What is the OS doing that requires so much time?
  • Can’t install MS SQL Server 2012 express in Windows 10
  • KB3105213 and windows 10 version 1511 fails to install
  • Win10 is not detecting the display properly, and is showing the “Monitors” in Device Manager as the “Generic PnP Monitor, and not as a 1280 x 800 ( WXGA ) display. I’ve tried to Uninstall the device in hopes that Win10 will detect the proper display, with no joy. Since the Monitor (remember: “Monitor”, not “Display Adapter”, which Win10 correctly identified as an ATi Radeon HD 3200) is using the in-built Win10 Drivers, it re-installs as the Generic and not the actual display, and of course “Update Drivers” would be and has been proven to be a non-solution, because all that Windows Update will search for is the Generic display.
