    mediacreationtool not working (anymore)

    I wanted to migrate back to Windows8.1, but the mediacreationtool doesnt let me download the windows8.1 iso file anymore. I guess this totally purposely, to force people into Windows10. It just says something like "cant download bla bla" the moment I click ok. A friend tested it too and it doesnt work.

    Are there any other save mirrors for a Windows 8.1 x86 iso? Or can I get any logs by the mediacreationtool, why it's not working?

    Were you using this link ?

    I just tried it and it got started ok.

    P.S. I did not finish it because I have no use of a win 8/8.1 iso file.

    Create installation media for Windows 8.1 - Windows Help not working for me nor my friend. It directly stops with error after clicking save to disk.

    No, because it's the same file. It's not working for german, windows8.1 non n/pro, x86.
