Running fine (all betas).

Perhaps add "X" to this notification?

In my opinion it is quite complicated to spot the "Get started". Especially for average users.

Got UI crash when tried to initiate remote connection (remote PC is using beta2).

It is reproducable. Also there seems to be issue with showing PC status. First it is "offline", but after selecting (click on PC) it and going back, it shows it's ready to initiate remote connection.

I see its now asking for reboot after installation to complete the process, which is good as the firewall driver always wants a reboot to apply, but ....its still reinstalling the vm's before avast is even ready for use, there needs to be a script of some sort to stop it doing this and to start after a few mins of logging in after the reboot and avast is complete. As it stands im having to wait for ngtool to finish before I can reboot the pc.

Well NG will be moved away from the system restore points hopefully in R3 in a few months.

Then this will get much better and faster hopefully.

Hi,

Is this RC build fully compatible with the latest tech preview build of windows 10? (it was mentioned in Beta 1 that some features on Windows 10 might not work correctly (Sandbox, DeepScreen, browser plugin in IE)).
