Announcing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 18342 – And why it may fail to present itself!

A nice and happy message from the Windows Insider Program website, another Build (#18342) is available.

So I rushed to my Windows Insider machines and, huh wait no update on 1 device. That’s odd, the other devices in the Fast Ring are ok, but this one is not…WHY?

Wel then there was the update on the website:

Hello Windows Insiders, today we are releasing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 18342 (19H1) to Windows Insiders in the Fast ring.

[UPDATED] PCs with the following chipsets processor model numbers will not receieve this build due to an issue with Connected Standby: Intel64 Family 6 Model 142 and Intel64 Family 6 Model 158. To check to see if your processor falls into these two buckets:

1: Open Device Manager by right-clicking on the Start button on your taskbar.
2: Open up the Processors group and right-click on one of the processors listed (you will see multiple for each core of the processor in your PC).
3: Click properties and go to the Details tab.
4: Choose “Hardware Ids” in the property dropdown. This will give you the model number of your processor.

Hmm let’s check 🙁
