Because I contacted Touch VPN they said a fix is in works.
Do i unterstand it right that this is a known issue of this build?
Current build is smooth enough.
Next build should be smoother.
And Ms catalog is saying that there no update package is available please help
I am not telling him to reset because he cannot install current update, but from the trend of deteriorating experience.
Am I getting it wrong?
Release Preview is safer.
.189 was very stable build in my L730 so far since win10 upgrade.
.189 runs amazingly good but app crash issue is never resolved.
