    MediaCreationTool Gives Useless Message


    I am running Windows 7 64 Ultimate and I am trying to run the MediaCreationTool64 from Microsoft. When I run it, I get the very helpful message shown below.

    At least it's nice to see Windows 10 is carrying on the long-standing Windows tradition of supplying useful and actionable information in their error messages. Thank you, Microsoft.
