Microsoft announced the second Bug Bash back during early January, and the time has finally come for us to start bashing. For those who don’t know, the Bug Bash is an event beloved by Insiders which has us wildly scrambling to complete any number of tasks in order to test a build to its limits. You can learn a little more about the process using the guide we put out not too long ago.
The bash will officially be kicking off later this week – Friday, to be exact – and you can expect an announcement on Friday morning PST that will drop all of the juicy details. The bash seems like it will be following much of the same formula that we saw back in April for the first event, so those who participated in a Bug Bash already should be familiar with how this all works.
Keep in mind that, if you’re running a 32-bit build of Windows 10, you’re going to have to wait a little while on this one.
We have discovered a bug that impacts our ability to release this build to PCs running 32-bit (x86) versions of Windows 10 Insider Preview builds. Because the majority of Insiders in the Fast ring have PCs running 64-bit (x64) – we decided to go ahead and release this build with 32-bit PCs blocked until our next flight.
If you have a 64-bit build of Windows 10 like the majority of users, you should get ready for the bash to kick off in just a couple of days. Those of you who are using the 32-bit build will still be getting a chance to enjoy the bug-squashing festivities, but we likely won’t be seeing you for another week or so.
