    Media creation tool does not download windows10.iso

    Hello, i've been looking for help a long time a go, thank god i found this forum.

    Here is the problem, im trying to use the media creation tool to download the W10 iso, boot from a dvd and do a clean install, deleting all my data.

    But the media creation tool seems to not be downloading a thing. for exalmple, i setup /Desktop as the download folder, but when it finishes, there is nothing downloaded. i've tried refreshing and a lot of stuff, but there is nothing. and it gets even worst.

    Look at this sreenshots:

    The file doesnt even allows to get deleted, it says it does not exist. The same to any change i try to do to the file.

    I've tried lots of times, and lots of things. I dont know that to do, i really need to clean-up my pc, the same things happens when i try to download it to a usb flash drive.

    I hope somebody can help me, if you need more screens, info, whatever you need to know what the f** is happening.

    Try uninstalling Daemon Tools then try the MediaCreationTool again. Put it on the Desktop to run it.

    Have you tried downloading to somewhere other than the Windows Desktop?

    Incidentally, it's possible to do a clean install with the free upgrade, but it's a little awkward.

    You have to first install the upgrade over an installed and activated qualifying OS (Win 7 SP1 or 8.1) I believe that you must use the default, which is to keep everything. Then let it activate.

    You may then use the upgrade to clean install on the same hardware. You won't get a Win 10 key, but you can skip it in the clean install and Win 10 will install and activate.

    Good luck.
