Another Windows 10 build 10159 released today

Microsoft has released back to back Windows 10 builds 10158 and 10159 in two days to the Windows Insider members on the Fast Ring. This news from Microsoft has came with in 24 hours after the company has released build 10158.

You might think that why two builds back to back, but Microsoft has answered that,

We validate builds that we produce in internal rings where they’re used by engineers in OSG and Microsoft. If they pass all of our criteria we make them available to Windows Insiders, first to Fast and then to Slow once we know it’s a stable build. We’d been using 10158 for almost a week and knew it was going to be a strong build, and the data backed that up so we released it yesterday. Hot on its heels though was build 10159, which in addition to more fixes (over 300 of them!), took in one very interesting change. We didn’t want to wait with 10158 so we went ahead and released that build while we were still evaluating 10159. As it turns out though, 10159 is also a great build and passes our criteria for the Windows Insider Fast ring.

We could have held off on it and picked a later build to give you some time with 10158 but we thought that you’d want to see that one change… Let us know if we chose correctly, or if Fast suddenly got *too* fast with 2 builds in 2 days.

Microsoft has also said that they are releasing the latest build by this afternoon and it will be available to everyone by the end of the day. The company has also said that, if you are actively downloading the yesterday’s build 10158 when build 10159 is being published, then you may encounter an error 0x80246017. If you get this error, this restart your PC and navigate to the settings and check again whether Windows 10 build 10159 is offered to you or not.
