Action Center not working in TP2 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    if I click in tray bar on "Action Center" I obtain nothing. I also tried to right click on it and then choose "Open Action Center" but even with this without result.

    Only a notice: this is a virtual machine create in Hyper-V (Windows 10 build 10240).

  • Hi Marco,

    I have verified with some members of our product group that the Action Center, Start, and all the tray flyouts will work in Server when it is released for RTM. Those features may work sooner, but there is no official timeline other than "by RTM."

    Thanks for the feedback!

  • Hi,

    If the Action Center can successfully opened by Control Panel as workaround? Try to install available Windows Update and then confirm the result.

    I will try to re-produce this problem in my test environment, please provide the version of “msinfo32” result.   

    Best Regards,

  • Hello,

    if I go to Start->Control Panel->System and Security->Security and Maintenance the windows opened with no problem, but I don't understand: in Windows 10 if you click on "Action Center" icon you have a completely different UI, so I suppose it was the same.

    The version of msinfo32 is "Version 10.0.10074 Build 10074".

  • To clarify, this is a Win 10 Client virtual machine, running on a Server 2016 TP2 machine, correct? Also, you are saying that when you click on Action Center icon, nothing happens, but if you get to Security and Maintenance via the Control Panel, it works as expected?

    My confusion is this: the Security and Maintenance window you navigate to via Control Panel is not the same thing as the Action Center. The Action Center may, at times, have messages from Security and Maintenance, but it also contains messages from many other sources.

    Your issue is that when you click the Action Center icon, nothing happens. You are unable to open the Action Center. Is this a correct description of your problem?

    You also mentioned that you are on Build 10074 for your Client machine. That is a fairly old version, and I recommend you update to the latest (RTM.) The update should be available through Windows Update. Once your machine is current, re-test this and let me know what happens.

  • Hello Jess,

    thanks for your reply. I think there is a misunderstanding and I haven't explained well.

    I have a Windows 10 physical machine (build 10240) and with the Hyper-V client I created a Windows Server 2016 TP 2 virtual machine where if I click on Action Center icon, nothing happens.

    I don't know if the UI of Action Center of the TP2 is similar to that in Windows 10 and sincerely I don't know where to start Action Center from Control Panel.

    I looked for Action Center in internet and where to start it from Control Panel and found the Security and Maintenance window, but I don't know if it is correct.

    Hope this explain it better.

  • Hello,

    same issue on TP3: the only difference is that if I right click on "Action Center" icon I have no more "Open Action Center" menu voice.
