Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 17017.1000 RS4 Installation

 

This Pre-view Build is a part of Redstone 4 development. And it is released by Microsoft to the Fast ring users.

There are reports of getting errors during downloading this pre-view build.

Error messages: error codes c1900401, 80240034, and 80070002, along with the message that “an update is being prepared” for their device.

Why are you getting those errors?

According to Microsoft the problem is caused by a missing component file in the download package that is required as part of the update process.

What to do if you get those errors?

Absolutely nothing from your end as Microsoft is aware of this and fixing the issue.

My experience:

I downloaded and installed this Preview Build without any errors. As I said earlier that Microsoft was aware of the fact and fixed the issue. But installation took a longer time than earlier.
