Stay away from build 14901, Adobe Acrobat Reader crashes in a big way
Microsoft is preparing the way for Redstone 2, and has released the first version for this edition of OS. Build 14901 doesn’t bring many improvements or new features, focusing mainly on testing the new notifications in File Explorer.
The next versions of Redstone 2 will also not include many new features, as Microsoft is directing its energy towards improving OneCore, which is the shared “heart” of Windows on PC, tablet, phone, IO, Hololens and Xbox, just as explains Doña Sarkar. In other words, the Windows Insider team is optimizing OneCore through code refactoring and other engineering work for teams to start checking out new features and enhancements.
Sarkar added that Insiders could test the new features in a few months, but did not say exactly when that would happen.
Redstone 2 build 14901 also brings two problems to the table, and the problem that is likely to affect most users is the constant crashes of Adobe Acrobat Reader. If you’ve already downloaded version 14901, expect Adobe Reader to crash every time you run it.
If you still want to run the latest version of Microsoft and be able to view PDF files, you must install another PDF viewer. If you are an Adobe fan, you should probably refrain from installing the Restone 2 versions and wait for Microsoft to fix this Adobe incompatibility issue.
Speaking of issues, Insiders are also reporting that they can’t install build 14901 due to error code 0x8024402f. Fortunately, this problem seems to be quite rare and can be easily fixed by trying to download and install the update again.
