    Expire soon?

    I know this is an Insider question, and may at the same time seem obvious, but...

    I am/was resetting up my system and used a 14361 build to boot and install. I got a message that the build would expire soon. Since I had never seen that before, I thought I would check.

    is that just because the build is back a couple, and not a problem since I am updating as we speak?

    In your search box, type winver > Enter.
    The box that appears will show you expiry date July 15th, 2016.
    Windows will stop booting on August 1st, 2016.



    Preview builds after 14361 and beginning at 14366, 14367, 14371, 14372 and 14379........
    Expiry date is : October 1st, 2016.
    Windows will stop booting on October 15th.

    The expiration date for some of us running 14379 is July 15. Microsoft has already said there will be a build released before then.

    An expiration date is NOT unusual for a test/beta/preview release of any software.
