** The following bug report has also been shared with Microsoft Windows Compatability team. **
I am on the Microsoft Insider quick ring so I get all the Insider builds to test and work out bugs before a general release. When the Startrek Shard came back up yesterday I loaded the game and played for about 10 minutes before the Criptic Crash hit me.
After that, I tried to rerun the ARC shell to get into the game Library and recieved a BSOD
I also recieved a message that the newest Insider build had downloaded to my PC and was awaiting install. I installed the newest build.
With the newest build in place Neither the ARC shell or the shortcut to Startrek would load, I would get the "Working Pointer" for a couple of seconds and the driver would then return to the normal state and neither program would run, not even in Task Manager.
I rolled my OS back to the previous version and got the programs to load. Until the Build 14257 was again downloaded into the updates queue which again would give the BSOD when trying to run ARC or Startrek.
** Microsoft Bug report has been filed and is in the Queue. **
IF you are on the Microsoft Fastrack Ring for Insider Builds of Windows 10, and play any ARC games, you may wish to "Defer updates". I am not total sure if it will stop the updates from getting downloaded to your PC, but it may be worth a try. Also if you go into your report problems application from Microsoft for the Insider builds and search for Startrek, you should be able to add a "me too" and attempt to escalate the issue in the bug squashing.
