Windows Update does not find Build 10041

When I check for new builds of Windows 10 Technical Preview, I’m not offered Build 10041, despite having gone to Settings > Update & Recovery > Advanced options, and setting Choose how preview builds are installed to Fast.

Hi,

If you’re already on the Fast ring, and checking for a new build in Windows Update does not find and start downloading Build 10041, you can make sure you have the right Flight Registry Settings.  These settings sometimes get set incorrectly and we released an update to fix this issue.

Option 1:  Install the Windows Update that will reset your Flight Registry Settings

You can download the update directly from the Microsoft Update Catalog: 

Option 2:  Edit your registry

If you’re not able to install the update, you can instead edit the registry yourself.  A word of warning:  these instructions ONLY apply to devices on Build 9926 that have set Choose how preview builds are installed to Fast:

  • Open regedit.exe
  • Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsSelfHost\Applicability
  • Ensure the following values exist:

        {value name}, {value type}, {value data}

  • BranchName, REG_SZ, fbl_impressive
  • ThresholdOptedin, REG_DWORD, 1
  • ThresholdRiskLevel, REG_SZ, low
    • Delete all other values
    • Open Settings > Update & recovery > Windows Update
    • Tap or click Check for updates
