Windows 10 build 17134 now rolling out to Slow ring and Release Preview Insiders

Microsoft this week began rolling out Windows 10 preview build 17134 to Fast ring Insiders, and now its time for the Slow and Release Preview rings to get a taste. Windows Insider chief announced today that the build is now available to download for Insiders in the Slow and Release Preview rings.

To recap, there are no new features included in this build. However, build 17134 replaced 17133 as the potential release candidate once Microsoft ran into reliability issues with 17133 during testing. As Microsoft explained at the time:

As Build 17133 progressed through the rings, we discovered some reliability issues we wanted to fix. In certain cases, these reliability issues could have led to a higher percentage of (BSOD) on PCs for example. Instead of creating a Cumulative Update package to service these issues, we decided to create a new build with the fixes included. This just reinforces that Windows Insiders are critical to helping us find and fix issues before releasing feature updates to all our customers so thank you!

Should testing go well, then build 17134 will make its way to the public soon. The build is moving ahead despite an issue causing the Settings app to crash for at least some users, though the Insider team says that it is not widespread.

If you're in the Slow or Release Preview rings for Windows 10, you should be able to download this latest release now. Build 17134 made its way out to HoloLens Insiders this week as well.

Updated April 20, 2018: Added information about 17134 hitting the Release Preview ring as well.

  • I've not had any problems with 17133.73 on release preview. Hopefully 17134 will arrive early next week
  • already been released to Preview as well
  • It's on the Release Preview Ring as well. Fingers crossed.
  • Thought I read there was another bug issue for 17134
  • It's tiny issue a few are getting a setting crash when trying to change default app I have not see it on any of mine running 17134.
  • I've come across it in both 17133 and 17134. In my case and a couple others I saw on Reddit the issue was caused by having Sumatra PDF installed. Once I uninstalled it the Settings crash went away. Tried to reinstall Sumatra and the problem came back. Odd issue but I don't see it as a blocker and this can probably be fixed with an update.
  • Try running dism /online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth and then sfc /scannow in an admin command prompt.
  • I am on 17133. Haven't had any problem yet. Just checked Windows update at 18:50 today. Feature update,downloading,now.

  • I installed 17134 build from 1709 on surface pro 3 and a desktop. oem recovery of 450 mb showed up and low disk space messages keep popping up on both machines.
  • Took fifteen hours to install....
  • It will take awhile it is a complete upgrade From 17133.73
  • Something is definitely wrong there as it shouldn't take 15 hours to install, even for a complete upgrade from one build to another.
