Preferred Solution: Windows insider date/time error for windows 8.1- cannot register to windows insider program

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I tried to install build 10166 on Lumia 635 than failed for insufficient space on SD card so I removed it while the phone had more than 1.5gb but the update wouldn't install anymore so I ignored It despite multiple notifications of the update ready to download for 2weeks so when 10536 came out i had to hard reset the phone (can't roll in insider because update ready to 10166) after than I couldn't also roll in for date/time connection issue as like I am considers by the server running the new build with this bug while my brother with l640 hadn't.

I have Windows 10 Insider Preview installed and activated on a (Vista) laptop. But the laptop is becoming unstable and I found an identical replacement. I tried installing the Insider Preview from scratch again but this time it does not activate.

I am not too surprised. But I see that the Insider Preview program is still ongoing. Is it possible to sign up with a new account and obtain a new activation? Or is it that only people who installed Insider Preview before 7/29 gets free activation?
 

Answer:Windows 10 Insider Preview - is it too late to register?

You don't get free activation for being a insider. if you had a active 7 or 8 license you got pro depending on when you joined, but you still need to purchase a license if you installed it on clean or on a system that didn't have 7 or 8 installed.

Microsoft (Gabe Aul) stated that they don't have anything for slow ring until next build at the soonest. You can try to get it through fast ring though.

Windows 10: Windows Insider Program participants can upgrade to the RTM build next year


Quote:




Offering the latest build of Windows 10, Microsoft's upcoming operating system that is set to launch in 2015, via a special Windows Insider Program to eager beta testers is a new move on Microsoft's part, in the hopes of obtaining as much feedback as possible. With a simple click of a button, you can check for a newer build and download/install it for evaluation purposes. This allows you to be on top of the developmental process and give testers the chance to tinker with the latest improvements and features.

Microsoft has already outlined a roadmap for Windows 10's release, which is set to happen sometime between late summer or early fall of next year. But one question has come up regarding these preview builds. Will Microsoft allow testers the ability to upgrade a preview build to the RTM (final) version of Windows 10 once it becomes available? The answer is yes.

Hello, Windows Insider ?

I'm Gabe, and I lead the Data & Fundamentals Team here in the Operating Systems Group (OSG). My team is excited about helping to review and understand all of the feedback we get from you via the Windows Insider Program, and working with all of our feature teams to make changes based on what we hear. You can expect to hear from me going forward on the Insider Program.

Download, and get new builds
◾If you haven't already installed Windows 10 Technical Preview, you can do it here. (If you are an IT pro, Windows 10 Technical Preview for Enterprise is here.) Just a reminder ? this is pre-release software , so check out Before you install to be sure it is right for you.


◾If you have already installed Tech Preview, the latest builds will come to you automatically via Windows Update. For most of you this means in the middle of the night. As long as your PC is plugged in ? and either on or sleeping ? the builds will be downloaded and installed for you. Note that Windows Update will not automatically download new builds over metered networks.


◾You can choose how often you'll get new builds ? "Fast" or "Slow." With more frequent updates, you'll see the latest features sooner, but you're more likely to run into bugs. By default, all Insiders will be opted into the "Slow" track.

Answer:get out of windows insider program

Just a question: did you take advantage of the free Upgrade when it was offered between July 29, 2015 and July 29, 2016? If so you may still have a digital license on Microsoft's server but it may require a clean install of Build 14393 to clear things up. If you didn't do the free Upgrade you'll need to buy a copy/license.

The first released version was Upgraded in Nov. '15, Version 1511 then the next Upgrade is Version 1607, now on Build 14393.351.

Hi everyone, I?m excited to share the news that we?re rolling out our next build update to the ?Fast? ring of the Windows Insider Program ? Build 9879! Once again this build has a ton of changes, some noteworthy new features, and a few gotchas to be aware of. It also has a number of things that YOU have influenced directly with your problem reports and suggestions. Thanks!

Getting started:

If you are new to the Windows Insider Program you may want to check out my post here from last month since this post is using some terms and concepts I first shared there. (e.g. our ?ring progression? model.)
Just like last time, this new build will come to you automatically via Windows Update, installed during your maintenance window if your PC is plugged in and on or sleeping.
If you don?t want to wait for it to download and install on its own ? you can go to PC Settings, Update and recovery, Preview builds and click the Check Now button to go get it now.
If you?re currently in the Fast ring, the build is available now. If you?re in the Slow ring, you won?t receive the build right away ? we?ll publish to Slow after we see how everything goes with the Fast ring.
This is a full build, and it will be installed as an in-place upgrade, so you?ll go through those colorful ?installing your apps? screens again. This is because your account is being re-provisioned after the upgrade.

Hello,
I thought I was already enrolled in the Windows Insider Program (Slow Ring), but I have not been able to receive the latest update on my Lumia 950 (released yesterday)
I checked Windows Insider App, and it asks me if I want to "Get preview builds", did it used to specify which ring I was enrolled in? I did try (twice) to re-enroll in the Slow Ring, but every time my device resets, I still get the same "Get preview builds" option (and my device still cannot see the latest update)
Any suggestions?
Thanks

Answer:How to tell if enrolled in Windows Insider Program?

The Ring factory made a lot of users confusing.
The 10586 threshold update is for:
1 - all not insiders Window10 eligible phone
2 - all Release Preview insiders for not eligible phones
3 - NOT for already Redstone slow and fast ring. (threshold is inferior than Redstone)
Who got the Fast and Slow Ring is in the Redstone build, NOT threshold. Did you noticed build # is inferior? :)

Ok so the time I heard that Windows 10's Tech preview was released, from what I can remember, I kinda signed-up for Insider. And today, they said that Insider Users will have to update their windows 10 tech previews to continue it to be genuine. Even i signed up, i didn't have time to download the preview. Plus, what's weird is the "reserve windows 10" button in my screen disappeared. And btw, i signed up in Insider from a different laptop(Windows 7) and a different e-mail address, and I am using my new laptop(Windows 8.1)without the new email being signed in to insider, but it is a microsoft account. So what is bothering me now is that is a microsoft account already an insider account? Because i didn't sign my new microsoft account in a new laptop and in a new Manager (Outlook) . So why did my reserve button disappear?

Answer:How do I leave Windows 10 Insider Program?

A Microsoft Account is not automatically an Insider, and the reserve icon is disappear for everyone, nothing to worry about it.

Has any one gotten their copy of Windows 10 activated via windows insider?
I've been in the program for almost a year and have gotten all the windows 10 previews on my system. I got the 10240 rtm build in my system via upgrade from the insiders program.
Like all tech enthusiast I decided to do a clean install on my system with a fresh windows 10 RTM from the windows website. It all ran smooth and working fine.
Now I enrolled back on the program using the options on the windows update settings, I did a restart buy still not activated.
I heard that the insiders program is on hold due to the RTM release. How true is this? Anyone else with this issue. Did anyone got this fixed?

Answer:Windows activation via insider's program?

Hi, I have a similar issue. Windows Insider programme updated my Surface Pro 2 after July 29th. It said 'Windows 10 Pro' in the About section of Settings, and the build number disappeared from the desktop. So I assumed that meant it was now my official Win 10.
I then performed a clean install via the downloadable USB installation - in retrospect I likely should have just 'Reset' the PC from Settings (but when you want RTM, you want the proper RTM as much as possible). Since then my copy of Windows 10 won't Activate.
Speaking to MS Support they suggested, initially to find the Product Key via a PowerShell method, and input it into the Activation screen.. But that didn't help. So they suggested installing Windows 8, and upgrading to Windows 10. Logical, but laborious.
Since downloading the Surface Pro 2 recovery image I have had no end of trouble trying to get Windows 8 to install. In fact all I've achieved is re-installing Windows 10 at least 3 times, in various different ways (I might set up another post about that!). It seems Windows 10 doesn't want me to go backwards.
And yet it certainly doesn't want me to go forwards and activate my copy of Windows 10. So any update you have on ideas, put them in the thread.

Greetings all,

I have a DVD copy of the latest Insider Build (16288) thanks to 'f14tomcat'

I have the latest Creator's Build on both my laptop/desktop (15063.608). I am wondering if i can do an update using the DVD (within Windows, not booting from the DVD) without actually being part of the Insider's program?? If so, will this trigger my Windows install to automatically put me in the Insider's program (hoping not)

Since this build has no expiration i was hoping to run it on my desktop (taking image before doing of course) till the Fall Build is released & install that over 16288. Is this possible?? Can anyone point out any negatives to doing such??

I've read more positive remarks about this build so i'm willing to give it a shot as long as it is doable. I will hold off till i hear from the gurus.
TIA,

Ray

Hi, before windows 10 was out, I was dual booting my system and I had windows 8.1 and windows 10 insider preview on it. So after windows 10 was out, I deleted the windows 10 insider preview partition and did a dirty install over the windows 8.1 (not an upgrade). Skipped product key entry on install and logged in with my Microsoft account (which is also my insider account). The thing is now, my window 10 shows it's activated but I am not in the insider program ( I have checked in the settings app and I am not in the program). So did Microsoft give it to me for free? because I thought the prerequisite for having a genuine windows 10 is either buying it or being in the windows insider program.

Answer:Windows 10 pro showing activated but not in the insider program?

Microsoft automatically activate computers if they're registered in their servers. When you used the insider edition that key was stored with your hardware id in their servers. When it loaded it activated itself automatically using that key which it pulled from their servers. That means it's got a limited time line and that in order to keep windows 10, you'll need to re-enroll as you haven't upgraded which would have given you a permanent key. Hope this helps

Hi everyone,
Before heading off for the holidays I wanted to give a little bit of an update on how things are shaping up for Windows 10, especially since we don?t have a build for you this month. I know that some of you are disappointed that we didn?t release another build (though we know some of them escaped?.I?m looking at you 9888 & 9901?)* but now that we?ve announced our event on January 21st I can finally explain why we didn?t. We?ve been very hard at work putting together a great build for you that includes a bunch of new features and improvements. As all of those payloads came in we needed to stabilize code, fix any integration issues, and ensure all of the new UX is polished. We?re really focused on making the next build something that we hope you?ll think is awesome. In fact, just so that we have a *daily* reminder to ourselves that we want this build to be great, we even named our build branch FBL_AWESOME. Yeah, it?s a bit corny, but trust me that every Dev that checks in their code and sees that branch name gets an immediate reminder of our goal. We?re super excited to show you what we?ve been up to!

I was upgrading to the latest slow ring upgrade using the insider program. It downloaded smoothly and stuck once while preparing for installation due to less memory. I cleared out some apps and data and tried again and it proceeded. After that it rebooted and started installation (the gears started grinding). But after sometime it suddenly showed a sad smiley face. The phone rebooted and gears came but it again showed the sad smiley face. Every time I connect it to a power source it goes on a loop like that. I tried hard resetting but the exclamation mark never reached. The windows recovery tool is not identifying it.
What should I do?

Answer:My lumia 520 bricked while upgrading to windows 10 using the insider program.

Can you get into the boot loader?
Do a soft reset and then hold the volume up button immediately when it vibrates it may take a few tries. Sometimes for me it's just before it vibrates or right on the mark. Which is pretty weird....
Hold the volume up button until you see Nokia written larger than normal ontop of the screen, not the middle.
Start the Windows Device Recovery Tool and choose my device is not detected, immediately plug in your phone and wait abit.
Post back results.
Also use the Nokia pre-supplied cable whenever possible as that is factory cable.
Once in the bootloader do not let the phone run out of charge and always before flashing make sure your phone is fully charged!

You should have got that update if your on pc (it's released to all rings and public).

I installed the Technical Preview of Windows 10 on an old desktop that is a spare machine. Because it is beta software, and also due to privacy concerns about text entry and so forth being captured to develop things like predicative text, I didn't put it on my laptop, my primary machine. I had enrolled in the Insider program to get the Win10 software, using my outlook.com address.
Now, I see that the Insider Program will remain in place after the release of Win10. However, I don't want to receive beta software after the release, nor do I want the potential loss of privacy that comes with it. Furthermore, I use the same MS account information on the laptop as I do on the desktop. I want to ensure that only a final version of Win10 is ever put on the laptop.
So, how will I un-enroll from the program, or at least exclude a machine from it?

Answer:How will I unenroll from the Windows Insider program once Win10 is released?

You should be able to do so from within the "Advanced" options of Windows Update. Currently there is a section which says "Choose how Preview Builds Are Installed", I'd say it's safe to say this option will become functional after RTM, allowing you to choose to opt out of Preview Builds / Updates.

Windows Insider Program: Frequently Asked Questions


The Windows Insider Program has been in full swing for almost a year now with countless Insiders helping shape Windows 10 as you see it today. Windows 10 is an ever-evolving operating system that relies heavily on Insiders' feedback to help shape the way it will evolve for the better. Below are some frequently asked questions about the Insider Program.

 1: WHAT IS THE INSIDER PROGRAM?
The Windows 10 Insider Program offers Windows users access to Insider Preview builds of Windows 10. Preview builds are effectively beta releases with the sole aim being for Insiders to test the build for stability, bugs, compatibility and general performance prior to the build being released to the general public.

As should be expected with beta software, Insider Preview builds can cause compatibility issues with programs (including anti virus software), drivers or hardware, damage or loss of data and network connectivity issues. With this in mind it would be advisable to not use your daily PC with an Insider build as your main operating system, but consider setting up a dual boot with your existing installation of Windows 7/8/8.1, creating a virtual machine or install on a completely separate system for testing purposes. It is also recommended to back up all of your data prior to setting up a dual boot.

Windows Insider Program: Frequently Asked Questions


The Windows Insider Program has been in full swing for almost a year now with countless Insiders helping shape Windows 10 as you see it today. Windows 10 is an ever-evolving operating system that relies heavily on Insiders' feedback to help shape the way it will evolve for the better. Below are some frequently asked questions about the Insider Program.

 1: WHAT IS THE INSIDER PROGRAM?
The Windows 10 Insider Program offers Windows users access to Insider Preview builds of Windows 10.

Several months ago, Microsoft said they were merging Windows Insider with Xbox Preview. But, I don't believe a word has been whispered since, and unless I'm blind, the two have definitely not been merged. Is this something they scrapped?

Ello people,
So ever since installing the latest insider build I've been getting an error (see title) at startup. At first I figured it would fix itself after a few reboots, but it didn't so I decided to hit Bing since I couldn't find the root of the error on my own.
Turns out that a few users have reported this issue and Gabe Aul also gave a solution, but it doesn't work for everyone...
If the solution doesn't work for you, you can head into scheduler and disable the function..
This page provides the Gabe Aul solution and the second solution: Here's a fix for the WSClient.dll error popup in Windows 10 build 11099

Answer:WsClient.dll error pop up (windows 10 insider)

I did this on my computer just today. I assume it works since I have not rebooted yet but that dll is disabled now. Good post.

shail0101 Since Win10 came preinstalled on your PC, it was a really BAD idea to mess around with Windows Insider editions.  I used them for months and discovered they can be very buggy -- as basically, they are testing versions. Ordinarily, I would recommend using HP Recovery Media to restore your PC to its original condition. That would erase the entire drive, format the drive, and install the OS, the drivers, and the HP utilities.Unfortunately, there is no HP Recovery Media linked to the HP Product Page for your PC.

This error occurs when the Windows upgrade file is in the wrong format.

Resolution

Download the Windows 10 ISO, and then upgrade to Windows 10 again.
If you're an MSDN subscriber, download the Windows 10 ISO from the MSDN subscription site.If you're not an MSDN subscriber or aren't sure if you are, create the Windows 10 ISO manually by using the media creation tool. When you run the tool, select the Create installation media for another PC option.

Being a preview you will need to create your own ISO though:

One of the known issues listed by Microsoft for the recently released Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 11102 is WSClient.dll error dialog which the user gets to see after logging in. Microsoft is working on the fix. While the Microsoft is working on a fix, it has posted a workaround also for the same.
Actually users are getting this error in the previous build 11099 also. Workaround:
Just run the following at the Command Prompt with admin rights. schtasks /delete /TN “\Microsoft\Windows\WS\WSRefreshBannedAppsListTask ” /F So if you are facing this issue, try the workaround till Microsoft issues the fix. (Source:meraTechPort)

So here's my complicated tale. Been an insider from 2014 on the first builds and my computer has ALWAYS stayed activated on the Windows 10 Insider Preview. Anyways after Build 10525 was released a new problem started on my computer that caused my PC to crash when exiting games. So I decided to wait it out till the next build. (Unfortunately I did not think to Reset my PC before but I did report the bug through the Feedback app). Then Build 10532 came out and I updated but the problem was still not fixed with my games so I then decided to rollback to 10525. After I was on 10525 I realized I should just go back to 10532 and then reset and perhaps the issue would be fixed. So I started the update process back to Build 10532. Then during the update installation it froze on "Configuring settings 1%" and stayed there for about 9 hours. I realized I should just shut down the computer and turn it back on and it'll resume and perhaps override the freeze. But it didn't...it actually went to "Restoring previous version of Windows" and then brought me back to 10525. So then I decided to just do the reset on 10525 to fix my issue with gaming. After doing the reset now it keeps telling me repeatedly to Activate Windows and I pressed the activate button but I keep getting error 0x8004FC12.

Thanks First did you hard reset? Second thats a really old build, pick insider fast ring and update to newest build 10536.1004 , it's great on the 1020. If all else fails Bing search windows phone recovery tool from your pc and make sure to download it directly from Microsoft site. Once you have the tool hook your phone up via USB. And follow instructions, it's rather easy! Always hard reset after upgrading.Hope that helps!!

Kaspersky declines to support Windows Insider builds of Windows 10






While not exactly new information, we?ve received a tip from a user of Kaspersky. When inquiring about Kaspersky not working with Insider builds of Windows 10, the company responded that their policy of not supporting them isn?t new.

?Kaspersky has never supported beta builds or preview versions of any operating system and it?s very unlikely that this will change, as we cannot guarantee the stability of our product on such builds. As a result, the chances of our product supporting such builds in the future is to be honest extremely low.
We absolutely respect your decision to continue using the Insider preview build and uninstall Kaspersky instead but in such a case there is not unfortunately anything further that we can do.?

aspersky points out that because Insider builds aren?t stable that they won?t support them. A similar sentiment was said by Microsoft themselves in a forum post. On that forum they state that ?You likely won?t see a fully supported version of Kaspersky until Redstone reaches general availability, which is in the second half of this year. That?s if you don?t like it, its best you stick with a fully supported stable build such as the Windows 10 November Update.?

I've seen a couple of comments saying you can't register as an Insider, but I just wanted to say I've done it today and it still works, just in case it helps someone.

What you can't do (well not officially; I imagine there are workarounds) is activate a new build following the temporary change announced here:

Gabe Aul said:

We?re suspending the availability of Windows 10 builds briefly while we prepare for that, and the next build that we flight to you will be delivered using the production channels. Starting tomorrow, we will also not be delivering any additional ISOs at this point as we really need Insiders to be using, stressing, and validating our distribution and upgrade processes. We?ll make ISOs available again in the future, but for now we ask you to upgrade your current build via Windows Update once the next build is released.

Specifically, this means that in the next 24hrs:
?Builds 10162 and 10166 will no longer be offered over Windows Update, and whatever build you?re on will show as ?up to date? if you check for new builds.
?ISOs for build 10162 will be taken down from the Home page - Windows Insider Program site and prerelease keys will no longer activate builds.

The Insider webpage let me register and join the Insider programme and the Notifications saying I need to do things to keep getting Insider builds have gone away, and it can now 'see' 10240.



I think things changed in the last few hours. Now only mobiles can be integrated in the Insider Program.

I tried on both cellular and wifi network but it only shows "update is available" but whenever I hits download button, progress remains 0%.. Plz help... What can I do now?

Answer:Help! Can't update L1320 windows insider program update?

did you restart after update 2 - that'll probably get it started.

I have a 640LTE Lumia. I'm not sure if anyone already wrote this but, last week I enrolled in the Windows insider program and when it came time to download my phone won't do it. It'll say downloading updates at 0% and once I press download, I'll get a notification saying I have an update ready to be installed and then I go to it and the same thing happens all over again. Is there a way I can fix this?

Answer:How do I remove windows insider configuration from my Windows 8.1 phone?

You will be able to upgrade to 10 officially regardless, assuming no carrier interference.
If you are already on the 10 Preview, use the Windows Phone REcovery Tool to downgrade.
If you are on 8.1 and don't want Insider updates, I'm not sure, you may want to uninstall Insider.
