    MCT ISO is version 1607 build 14393.

    You can always check any Windows ISO by yourself: double click the ISO to mount it as virtual DVD, check the drive letter it got and give the following command replacing drive letter X with your actual one:

    Code:
    dism /Get-WimInfo /WimFile:X:\sources\install.esd /index:1

    Notice that above command applies only to MCT ISO images as they use install.esd instead of install.wim file. For all other ISO images with install.wim simply replace the ESD extension with WIM:

    Code:
    dism /Get-WimInfo /WimFile:X:\sources\install.wim/index:1

    Yes. Anyway, I always check my ISO images as told in my previous post before using them, just to be sure. An old school geek, hard to forget old habits: five most important things in computing are backup, backup, backup, backup and check that you are using correct install media.

    Kari I used this to check the iso I downloaded using option #1 in this tutorial Windows 10 ISO Download It states the download is both Home and Pro versions https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/soft.../windows10ISO/

    When I used the dism /Get-WimInfo /WimFile:X:\sources\install.wim /index:1 (needed a space between the wim and / ) I get the same thing you show with the Pro version, I've used this USB iso to successfully install the AU in two laptops that are the x64 Pro version. It fails when I try in the x64 Home version, I'm wondering if the iso is not really both Home and Pro. It is over 4G so being larger than the Home version I though that was why, now I'm not so sure.

    A screenshot of my iso is below, only shows Pro version, is that correct, or is the Home version hidden due to maybe only showing the highest level version on the iso, or is Pro the only one on it?

    If you want to see what versions are in the WIM file, you need to leave the /index:1 off the end of the command.

    Or change it to /index:2


    Index:1 should be Pro.
    Index:2 should be Home
    Leave the /Index parameter off the end of the command and it will list all the indexes in the file.

    Thank you NavyLCDR, I did that and here's what I got:

    You gave entirely the correct answer for the first question asked :-) You have to include the /index:x parameter in order to determine the build number.
