Owners of some Windows 10 laptops and tablets are crashing into a worrying roadblock when they try to install the Windows 10 Creators Update. Microsoft also delayed its Timeline feature for their Fall Creators Update, which was highly anticipated. But it is just a bit odd that Microsoft would make a UWP version of the LinkedIn app that doesn't work on Windows 10 Mobile.

This is without a doubt, this could only cause more confusion among users, especially because in some parts of the world, like the southern hemisphere, the Redstone 3 update would see daylight during the spring. If they do end up finding a way to install the Creators Update on unsupported devices, it might not function properly at all because of the underlying compatibility issues at the core.

"Microsoft is working with us to help provide compatible drivers to address this incompatibility". Coming up with two names a year is clearly stretching Microsoft's creativity-"Fall Creators Update" as a successor to "Creators Update" does not feel very inspired-is raising silly localization issues, and is in any case unhelpful.

"If you have already installed Creators Update and are experiencing problems, you can use Windows 10 recovery options to restore your system to the previous build".

ZDNet reports that the issue affects Intel's Atom Clover Trail series of CPUs.

Unfortunately, 2-in-1 PCs announced in 2012 and sold between 2013 and 2014 that were eligible for a free Windows 10 upgrade are affected. That's potentially a problem as far as security is concerned, as Microsoft is set to drop official support (meaning updates) for the Anniversary Update in early 2018.

Some PC users have discovered something alarming with their Windows 10 operating system.

What the heck does that mean?

Another moaned: "Really? could not check that first? and why doesnt say processor not supported? so amateur. and worse, the creator suggestion came from Windows update. A device may not be able to receive updates if the device hardware is incompatible, lacking current drivers, or otherwise outside of the Original Equipment Manufacturer's ("OEM") support period".
