Latest Windows 10 Insider Build Reportedly Causing GSOD, Office 365 Issues, And More

Last week Microsoft released Windows 10 Insider build 19613 to Fast Rings Insiders. Microsoft didn’t ship any new features in this build but fixed some minor bugs for Windows Insiders. With this release, the software giant fixed issues with Windows Forms apps, Visual Studio-Monitor, Taskbar/Explorer, Command-line, and Settings app.

In addition, Microsoft also announced the release of a new Cortana app update to the Fast Ring. Cortana app version 2.2004.1706.0 introduced support for Assistant Conversations and Bing Answers in 11 new countries including India, Australia, the UK and Canada.

Besides the long list of fixes, it seems like the latest build introduced some nasty new problems as well. Some major issues are listed below:

ISO Mounting Issues

Apparently, the ISO mounting issues persist in this build. On Microsoft Community forums, some users complained that they are experiencing problems while mounting ISO files:

“Build 19613.1000 still has similar problems mounting ISO files either from Internal SATA or external USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 devices. One particular ISO file can reproduce the problems easily.”

The Green Screen Of Death

It seems like the latest update causes onboard graphics to malfunction. Some users claimed that they could no longer boot into their systems due to the infamous GSoD error:

“However, got a GSOD on the same PC as before. Happened three times in a row, so went back to previous build.”

Download Errors

Some Fast Ring reported that the update is taking ages to install. One user claimed that the latest build failed to install with the error code 0x80070490:

“Tries to download and stops at 0% with following error: Windows 10 Insider Preview 19613.1000 (rs_prerelease) Failed to install on ‎24/‎04/‎2020 – 0x80070490.”

Office 365 issues

Emerging reports suggest that the update may cause issues with MS Office 365, forcing you to run an online repair of the software:

“Received an error message post install that MS Office 365 had a problem. I did not log the error code at the time. I did a full online repair of Office and have not seen the error message again.”

While all the aforementioned issues have forced some users to question the point of updating. Until Microsoft finds a way to fix these issues, it is recommended that you should back up your files and data before updating your production machines. However, those users who can’t boot into their PCs can back up their File with this method.
