Re: Win10 redstone

I was using Windows 10 frequently in conjunction with a free trial of Microsoft Office 2016.  Every time there was a new preview version the time period remaining on the trial changed - somewhat randomly.  But now my trial has expired and so now I most frequently use an earlier version of Windows with a working version of Office.  Unless i can re-activate the office trial somehow then my Windows 10 Preview will be on the back burner.

I'll never know.  The installer finished the 0-30% stage of the circle "transferring files", restarted, crashed with a BSOD, restarted, crashed again with a BSOD, then restored me back to 1511 (with admirable speed).

Re: Win10 redstone

I tried again and succeeded.  This had the beneficial effect of reviving my Office 2016 trial for another 30 days.  But then I found some very odd behaviours when writing text.  At one point I could not move the cursor (on a web form in Edge) using a mouse click although the arrow keys would step it to the next character as usual.  Later spaces would not appear in Word until I typed the following character and then could not be deleted with the backspace key.  You would not think it was possible to mess-up such fundamental things.
