Windows 10: Comparing versions of Windows 10

    Comparing versions of Windows 10


    Hi

    I would like to be able to compare the versions of Windows 10 both already installed on my machine and the version of the ISO on a DVD.
    I have followed the tutorial on finding this information for an ISO using the DISM command and it would be useful if I could have the same format for the installed version so I can compare.

    This is only my second post so be kind to me!!

    Regards

    Open a command prompt (admin). Run:

    dism /online /get-currentedition

    dism /online /get-targeteditions

    Many thanks for getting back to me. I tried your suggestions and they gave me what I wanted. However would the output from my command and yours explain why I could no reset my installation using the ISO failed?

    Open a command prompt and type SYSTEMINFO

    This will give more details about your current system. In particular, check that the 'System Type' and 'System Locale' match the x64 and en-gb of your ISO.

    What do you mean by "reset" your computer? Are you trying to do a clean install by booting from a USB flash drive or DVD made from the ISO file? Are you trying to do an in place repair upgrade install by mounting the ISO file and running setup.exe from the mounted file?

    This is your problem:

    That's an ISO for the original release version from July 2015. You need to get the current ISO to do an in-place repair. There's no need to burn it to DVD (you'd need a dual layer DVD to hold it) just mount the ISO file and run setup from the virtual drive. Alternatively use the MCT to make the USB install media.
