Microsoft today confirmed that it is working on a new tool which will help Windows Insiders who are stuck on older preview versions of Windows 10 to install newer builds. This news was confirmed by the Senior Program Manager Jason Howard in a blog post, that the company is working on a new tool which will help users stuck on older preview builds to install latest Windows 10 builds to stay up to date.

There are currently lot of Windows Insiders who have not been able to get the company’s latest Windows 10 version Fall Creators update since the earlier update assistant was removed by Microsoft.

There have been lot of Insiders who have complained of not being able to install new builds due to the company having changed the configurations of the PCs which can download the latest builds.

The configuration have left lot of Insiders to remain on older builds with no option to install the latest Windows 10 version. To help these Insiders Microsoft is currently working on a tool or program through which Insiders will be able to install new builds on their PCs.

Jason Howard also confirmed that staying up to date is the best way to take advantage of new features and help users to remain secure. There has been no time frame revealed as to when Microsoft plans to release the new tool but we expect the company to make the tool available very soon since the company is already expected to release the next Windows 10 version Spring Creators Update to general public.

Microsoft has already suggested the use of ISO files to be a good solution for devices that get stuck on a build as an option but is advisable only for users who have experience in the process. The ISO files option has also been endorsed by Jason to have a clean install of the build till the company releases the new tool for Insiders.
