Today, Gabriel Aul announced on Twitter the release of two hotfixes for Windows 10 Technical Preview build 10049. The two hotfixes address two issues found in the build. After installing Windows 10 Technical Preview build 10049, many users reported issues with Outlook and Hyper-V. It looks as if Microsoft is actively listening to users’ complaints and have released the following hotfixes to correct the issues:
- KB3053902: Outlook might not index new emails in Windows 10 Technical Preview Build 10049. “After installing Windows 10 Technical Preview Build 10049, Outlook 2013 and Outlook 16 Preview might not index new emails. As a result, new emails do not appear in search results, and if you rebuild the index, no emails appear in search results.”
- KB3053898: Hyper-V cannot be enabled in Windows 10 Technical Preview Build 10049. “You cannot enable Hyper-V after performing a clean install of Windows 10 Technical Preview Build 10049, nor after upgrading to Build 10049 from a build that did not have Hyper-V enabled.”
For those experiencing issues with Outlook, the problems occurred with Outlook 2013 and Outlook 2016 Preview not indexing new emails correctly. Thus, no new emails would appear in your email search results, and if you rebuild the index, no emails would appear in your email search results.
The other issue occurred within Hyper-V. WinBeta previously reported on the issue and gave users a temporary solution to the Hyper-V issue. This issue only occurs if you had Hyper-V disabled as you upgraded to build 10049. However, those of you who had Hyper-V enabled prior to upgrading to build 10049 will not encounter the bug. The Hyper-V hotfix will help resolve this problem.
So if your Windows PC is already set up to receive automatic Windows 10 Technical Preview build updates, you should be good to go. If not, head over to Windows Update to make sure you take advantage of these two hotfixes.
