Windows 10 Nerd Math. What day of the week an Insider Build typically gets released.
*Total of 62 Releases as of 1/9
I was getting ready to use the Windows 10 Download Tool to create an ISO to upgrade my old HP Laptop (DV9543CL). I downloaded the tool and ran. However I kept getting the following error when tryting to use.
I rebooted several times.
I try to run with elevated permissions (run as Administrator).
Nothing was working.
I finally changed my user account permissions to local admin and that resolved. Sigh…
On the heels of Microsofts big Janurary System Updates (1/19), which saw its largest number of system updates (15), Microsoft has released another set of updates.
- Surface UEFI update (v1.51116.78.0) recalibrates touch panel.
- Surface Touch Controller Firmware update (v22.214.171.124) recalibrates touch panel.
- Surface Platform Power Driver update (v126.96.36.199) improves charging.
Surface Pro 4 Firmware and Driver Update for November 2015. Release date is November 9th.
- No details as of yet on this update
This is the second update in less than a week. There was an earlier update November 2nd.
- HD Graphics 520 driver update (v188.8.131.5208) addresses some display issues, including some scenarios that result in screen flickering.
- Display audio driver update (v184.108.40.2069) supports compatibility with the updated graphics driver.
- Surface Embedded Controller Firmware update (v103.855.257.0) improves system stability.
- Surface Pen Settings driver update (v10.0.302.0) adds support for future functionality on Windows 10.
You can see main Surface Pro 4 Update page here.
Updated Surface 3 Firmware and Drivers for November 2015.
No current details on what it includes. Download here.
The new Surface Pro 4 and Surface Book Stylus that was just released. I just got mine in the mail today.
The Stylus is also backward compatible with the Surface Pro 3 and the Surface 3, which is great news since this is what I am currently using.
New with this Stylus is a package of different tips. The tips provide different friction on the glass.
2H – Very Low Friction
H – Low Friction
HB – Medium Friction
B – High Friction
The default tip in the stylus is the HB version.
The new Surface Stylus is about 1/2” longer than the previous pen and in my opinion it seems to be more weight distributed. Comparison of the SP3 and SP4 Stylus.
No buttons on the new Stylus. There is a button bar on the flat side of the Stylus that now controls the right click feature. I kind of like the flat surface of the Stylus for my finger. It feels more ergonomic.
Be careful trying to remove the cap. IT IS NOT A SCREW CAP like the previous version. It is a guided notch. It turns a quarter turn and pulls off. I bet there will be a handful of calls to Microsoft support from people breaking them before they are ever used. Ouch…
I actually read the user guide with this pen, after almost breaking mine.
