New ADK preview today. Direct iso link here:

https://mdl-tb.ct8.pl/getDirect.php?fileName=Windows_InsiderPreview_ADK_en-us_15042.iso

PE seems to be seriously "broken" since 14393. Will someone please tell me I'm not crazy and try installing the ADK preview (tools + PE is enough), start the ADK prompt,then make the PE folder:

copype amd64 d:\adk15042-pe-x64

then write this to usb, for example drive letter g:

makewinpemedia /ufd d:\adk15042-pe-x64 g:

Boot the usb, then type "notepad" and try to load a file. It doesn't work!!! (Error: "Not implemented").

A normal file selection dialog like this doesn't seem to work anymore. What's going on here!?
It's like this for every normal program, PE is completely unusable this way!

on run box (or cmd line) when you test with :

calc.exe

do you get same error  (Error: "Not implemented"). ?

Please hold for more testing...
This morning I saw there was yet another preview (Windows preview 15046, not full ADK), this just a few days after 15042 (and the 15042 ADK preview). I did a quick test and the error finally seems to be fixed (maybe they read my post).

If it wouldn't have been this close to "RTM", I wouldn't have said anything, but it think it's pretty lame that a basic error like this show up in versions so close to RTM. Please not this error was in *all* the previews (including adk previews since post-14393...

Thanks for listening anyways, I will let you know later today if it's really fixed.

EDIT: YES, it seems to be fixed. So it was a coincidence that my patience ran out 1 day before they finally decided to do something about it. About time!!!

Good that they fixed it  :smile:

The bcdedit.exe is still linked against win10 API set and therefor can not run on Windows 7.
Does anyone noticed any improvement over the 1511 version?
