    Windows 10 ISO, How Often Upgraded?


    The thread title says it all. When was the last time that the downloadable Windows 10 ISO upgraded?

    I see. So the official Windows 10 ISO that you download from Microsoft has not changed since November?

    That would be incorrect. It was updated February 2016. To build 10586.104.

    I believe that 10586.104 is an update which is outdated. We are still on version 1511.

    I have an ISO download dated 11/12/2015 that is bit identical to an ISO download dated 4/17/2016 and they both install version 1511 build 10586.218.

    Now how could you possibly have downloaded build 10586.218 on 11/12/205 when the update to build 10586.218 came out just this month and did not exist in November?

    You have ISO's somewhere in the build 10586 series - which is also known as version 1511, aka November update - and after installation they get a cumulative update from Windows Update which brings them up to build 10586.218.

    And that is why people don't really gain anything from downloading a new ISO as long as they are in the current build series (which is 10586) - because the first cumulative update from Windows Update is going to bring them up to latest minor build anyway - which is now 10586.218.

    If you download an ISO file today, and install it without being connected to the internet, and look at the version number after installation, it will be 10586.104. Connect to the internet, pull the cumulative update, and you go to 10586.218 and you will skip 10586.122 and 10586.164.

    Install a build 10586 ISO file downloaded in November, install it without being connected to the internet, and look at the version number after installation, it will be 10586.0. Connect to the internet, pull the cumulative update, and you go straight to 10586.218 - skipping all the minor builds in between.

    Windows 10 version 1511 ISOs have been updated to include the April 2016 CU - MSDN has them as of 5/23/2016.

    This is a good explanation. At the end of the day, the way Windows 10 updates work, it does not make much difference if you install first iso (after a build upgrade) or latest (in same build), as they will all install latest cumulative update.

    I still like to have the latest and greatest. Less chance of something going wrong during setup. IMHO. It could be faster to if the update to current patch is smaller.
