I can't download for insider preview

I'm trying to download the microsoft layout (preview) on my hololens, but it keeps telling me that I have to join for microsoft insider preview. I did do that on my settings and when I click check updates it says that there are no updates. It has greyed out the install option and keeps telling me to join now on the insider program even though I already have? any ideas?


  • I have the same issue. I have restarted, logged in and logged out several times and still the install button is greyed out. Is there a workaround?

  • @Louise_Nova Theres a software update that is needed on the hololens that needs to be downloaded through the windows device recovery tool
