Microsoft releases Windows build 15063 for PC and Mobile through the Fast ring. This is yet another minor update with new fixes and improvements, but not new features.

As the development of the Windows 10 Creators Update is about complete, build 15063 is said to be the potential final candidate that Microsoft is picking to release to the public in early April.

Windows 10 build 15063, according to the company, delivers a bug fix for Microsoft Edge and addresses a language pack issue. On Windows 10 Mobile, this update fixes a bug causing apps to fail during launch, background tasks, Bluetooth, and more.

This flight also includes a number of known issues that you should know before installing on your PC and Mobile devices.

What’s new on Windows 10 build 15061 for PC

On this release, Microsoft Edge no longer hands or becomes unresponsive like in previous builds. Also, there is a fix for a problem where the localized files and registry keys associated with any additional language packs on the system would not be installed after enabling .NET Framework 3.5.

As for known issues on PC, you’re unable to download new language packs on this build. If your device fails to install this build on reboot with the error 8024a112, reboot manually again.

A small group of computers have reported seeing this error “Some updates were cancelled. We’ll keep trying in case new updates become available” in Windows Update.

Certain apps and games may crash due to a misconfiguration of advertising ID that happened in a prior build. The restart reminder dialog won’t appear, and some hardware configurations may cause the broadcast live review window in the Game bar to flash Green while you are Broadcasting.

What’s new on Windows 10 Mobile build 15063

Microsoft is also making available the update for Windows 10 Mobile addressing an issue with some apps failing to launch. There is a fix to resolve a problem with background tasks. You should no longer lose call, text, or email history if your device reboots unexpectedly.

Speech Packs should download and install normally. This flight also fixes cards resulting in connection failures after pairing Bluetooth, and issue where replacing the default APN for LTE on the phone wouldn’t work.

As for known issue for phones, updating from the Windows 10 Anniversary Update (Build 14393) directly to this build won’t work.

On Microsoft, pages are constantly reloading or refreshing, especially while they are in the middle of scrolling them.

Microsoft is listing the complete set of fixes and known issues for build 15061 at the Windows Blog. In case you missed it, here are all the new changes introduced in the last flight (Windows 10 build 15061).
