    Unable to create installation media from all 3 of my Windows 10 PC's

    This worked for me a few weeks back. Today I am looking to try to reload Windows 10 on one of my desktop PC's that has just never been right after upgrade from Windows 7. I figured, trying a clean install is in order. The trouble is, as of today, the MediaCreationTool is not working for me. I get the same error on all 3 of my Windows 10 computers: "Setup couldn't start properly. Please restart your PC and try again." Anyone else having problems using the tool or aware of what might be going on? I can say that the mediacreationtool worked splendidly a few weeks back, but I have already repurposed that jump drive so the media is no longer in tact. Any help appreciated!

    Specifically, the tools on this page are not working for me:


    Side note: Anyone else's machine running like rubbish today? My PC's have always been real smooth, but now all three are just not quite 'right'. Mouse disappearing hear and there while I am dragging it. Pauses before I can type, etc. Just weird random anomalies that are far from normal.

    I figured out what the problem was with the media creation tool.. Duh!! If you are running on a 64 bit machine looking to reload a 32 bit machine, you still need to download the 64 bit version. I guess I will keep this up in case anyone else winds up tripping over this one.

    Windows 8.1 pro upgraded to Windows 10 pro

    if on a 64 bit machine the 64bit download will work
    if its a 32 bit machine only the 32bit version will work unless its capable of being a 64 bit machine then theres a different upgrade process you need to do
