Microsoft to use several different names for Windows 10

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 today announced the availability of the LinkedIn mobile app for Windows 10. "Uninstall this app now because it isn't compatible with Windows 10". In contrast, it's easy to know that Version 1703 is installed because Windows' System properties and the winver program both tell you.

"The compatibility check that's part of the Windows Setup program gave this system a clean bill of health, but after downloading more than 3GB of setup files for the Creators Update, the upgrade failed, with the error message shown above", explains ZDNet reporter Ed Bott.

"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".

The company has yet to respond on the issues they're facing with the Atom Clover Trail processors. However, there will be no moving to the Creators Update for the foreseeable future.

"Microsoft is working with us to help provide compatible drivers to address this incompatibility".

This means that users will get live updates on tiles and within the Action Centre on their computers.

Then again, that was said in April, and now it's July with nary a peep from Microsoft.

I recently mentioned that Microsoft was retiring LinkedIn for Windows Phone in Thurrott Now (a Premium site feature). According to one user who replied to the main thread, the Creators Update doesn't support the following CPUs: Intel Atom Z2760, Atom Z2520, Atom Z2560, and Atom Z2580. The issue keeps the user's PC stuck in the Windows 10 version 1607 version until Microsoft offers a fix for the problem. The Anniversary Update released in August 2016, so Microsoft will support it with security and reliability patches until early 2018.

On the other hand, it is expected that most people would refer to the update as to Windows 10 version 1709, and Microsoft now itself uses the version number in its official documentation.
