In the release notes it is mentioned that some application such as Call of Duty Warzone and Call of Duty Blackops to not work with on Build 21286 https://blogs.windows.com/windows-insider/2021/01/06/announcing-windows-10-insider-preview-build-212... "

  • We’re investigating an issue where Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War may not launch starting with this build. If you play these games, you may wish to pause updates until the issue is resolved."

Unfortunately I only saw that after I completed the update. Cod does not start in any way and a rollback to a previous Windows always fails. 

Has anybody found a workaround? I guess the only solutions is to reinstall :cry:

I just installed the latest windows insider build update - Windows 10 Insider Preview 21286.1000 (rs_prerelease). I cannot play Modern Warfare now. I do see that the game launches and I see the process in the Task Manager but then it is suspended (sometimes, not all the time) or it just disappears from the list. Then the Blizzard launcher button changes from Launching... to Play Now.

I don't think I can roll back changes. I want a quick solution too.

Since it's mentioned in the blog post as known issue, just wait till it's fixed. if it was easy to fix I think they would have done it before release.

 

you can dual boot Insider Dev/Stable build so in these situations switch to the regular version of Windows and do your normal tasks.

@HotCakeX 

Do you have the instructions to dual boot both builds?

Well yeah, I've dual booted many OSes, and there are many guides for that with pictures and everything.

https://www.windowscentral.com/how-dual-boot-windows-10-alongside-insider-preview-build

my favorite way of dual booting Windows is to use VHD (more advanced)

Go to previous build . I thought it was a game bug but then I go into previous build and the game runs normal now :) . This bluf not good 21286.

@Jose9090 

How are you able to go to a previous build? I am unable to find out how to do this. I uninstalled some updates but no luck.

@Jose9090 

Okay, I just googled it and found out how to go back to a previous build. 

 

I used this link to help me out. https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/insider/forum/insider_wintp-insider_update-insiderplat_pc/inside...

Any improvements on this issue? I can't rollback to the previous version and I wanna play COD

according to the latest blog post, they are still working on it

 

https://blogs.windows.com/windows-insider/2021/01/13/announcing-windows-10-insider-preview-build-212...

 

it was added to the "known issues" when that build was released, and they suggested to pause the update if you're playing these games.

now that you're installed it, i think the best way is to dual boot with a stable release of Windows 10.

@caroluchoa 

I could also not Rollback to a previous version. As a workaround I installed Windows 20H2 on a seperate disk and can now dual boot 21292 or 20H2. In the 20H2 OS you can install Battle.net and point to the existing Call of Duty installation, in my case that is the same disk as 21292 is installed on. This way you do not have to re-download the 200GB game data.

I got solution. Just installed latest NVIDIA Driver - 461.09
You can check download this driver from extended search page https://www.nvidia.com/Download/Find.aspx
I choose Standard version, you must delete NVIDIA Panel before install or Windows will rollback drivers to old 432 version.

How is Nvidia driver going to help with Windows insider problem exactly?
what if someone has AMD or Intel graphic card.

@HotCakeX in my case, it's fixed by update of driver. Maybe it can help for another cards, this is why i reported about possible solution.

The newest MS update from today 16.1. Fixes the problem
Interesting, I haven't received any updates yet

@HotCakeX  is this true. i have been holding off reinstalling update for this reason and do want to try out this builds new features.

 

I don't play those specific games so I can't tell, but as far as I know and read in the official blog post, there is no mention of any updates that fixed this yet

@HotCakeX I've just installed the latest update and the issue wasn't fixed

Yep, that update wasn't anything major

"UPDATE 1/15/21: We are starting to roll out Cumulative Update Build 21292.1010 (KB4601937). This update does not include anything new and is designed to test our servicing pipeline."
