Yes, odd's the word. 
 
I just spun up 2 VMs this evening, both 64-bit.  One is a clean install of 9841, then upgraded to 9879.  The second is a clean install of 9879.  They both block wsainstall.exe.  The version of wsainstall I'm getting from my account portal is 8.0.6.28.  Is it possible that a different installer version works whereas this one doesn't?  Both of the those VMs use a different Live account, so it's not limited to that one Live account.

Also I have WSA on Both 32bit and 64bit versions of Win 10 Preview Build 9879 with no issue since the files got Whitelisted at the time of the first post and I have not seen anything from Compatibility Assistant. Odd.

Hello,
Threat research attempted to reproduce this issue a number of times and was not able to. Here is their reply:
 
"I tested this several times and could not reproduce this. The only time the Program Compatibility Assistant came up was while I was trying to uninstall WSA between tests and it asked me if the program uninstalled correctly. The second time I tested, not even that happened."
 
If anyone has any further conflicts with Win10, we are interested in hearing about those so please contact support in order to submit logs for analysis. 
 
Thank you all very much!

Thanks for the info - I'll pass that long to the folks here and see what needs to be done to stop it blocking the install.
 
Is there a way of bypassing the PCA?  I haven't played with 10 yet so I'm not that familiar with it.

If you do download a new build and encounter any issues let us know, particularly which files it is monitoring.

Hello BizDPS,

Welcome to Community Forum,

Great to have you here! :)

That's an interesting question and I'm not sure how to answer that so I will leave this to the guru's in the Community to respond to this. Ok?

Best Regards,

Security apps go through a completely different verification process than standard apps. We did work up until the latest build update.

We are working on it.  We've whitelisted a bunch of files from the early builds, but we might not have gone through that process for the latest builds yet.
