Windows 10 Insider Preview build is about to expire

A couple of days ago, Microsoft reminded their customers that Windows 10 Insider Preview builds, old pre-release versions of Windows 10, have an expiration date. And it is the 15th of October, 2016.

Just like any Insider Preview versions of Windows, Windows 10 pre-release builds have a limited lifespan. People who have one and haven’t updated Windows on their computers will start getting notifications about the necessity of update. The notification will be popping up daily until the 1st of October. Then the ones who have the tendency to ignore notifications and close them without reading will find it difficult to do. After the 1st of October Windows will start restarting every 3 hours. And finally, on the 15th of October Windows will no longer boot.

Just update your Windows 10 Insider Preview build

To avoid conjugated problems (for a while) one needs to install appropriate updates. That is easily done via Settings > Update & security > Windows Update. The latest build has an extended expiration date – the 1st of May, 2017. 

To view the Version, Build number Expiration date enter:  Winver.exe  in the Search box.
