    WIn 10 Creator version number


    What is the real version number for Win 10 Creator? Is it 15063 or 1703? I know I got the Creator update because it said so after the update ran which took an hour. But my sister's PC I may have to force the upgrade and the Win Upgrade Assistant refers to 15063. So I'm hesitant to run the Assistant on my sister's PC.

    Thanks,
    Gerry

    Since Windows NT first began, each new revision has been given a build number. This build number has been used consistently through all versions of Windows since, getting larger with each new version. Many builds don't get as far as a public release, being internal development builds within Microsoft. The public release of Windows XP started at build 2600.

    The first public release of Windows 10 was build 10240. Cumulative updates don't change the major build number, but do increment the minor build number (the number after the 'dot'). The latest update for the original version is build 10240.17488.

    Features updates are a new version of Windows 10 and have a new build number. The version name (1511, 1607 or 1703) is the year and month the build was finalized in the format YYMM. There is also a name for each version, so we have three ways to identify what version of windows you have, the name, the version and the build number. You can use them interchangeably.

    Fall Update, version 1511, os build 10586
    Anniversary Update, version 1607, os build 14393
    Creators Update, version 1703, os build 15063

    Newer build numbers are being released to Windows Insiders for testing, currently its up to build 16241
    Announcing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 16241 PC + 15230 Mobile

    One of these builds will get fixed as the next public release, to be called the Fall Creators Update and (probably) version 1709.

    Hi Bree,

    Thanks so much for the detailed explanation! I figured it was how you explained but wasn't sure. However, MS doesn't even follow their own guidelines. When I go to System Info and look at the version, it says:

    Version 10.0 15063 Build 15063

    So I'm sure its the Creators Update but it really should say version 1703, build 15063.

    Thanks again,
    Gerry

    It does say that if you use WinKey+R and run Winver - and if you look in Settings > System > About.

    Seems msinfo32 has build under version... could be confusing for some - maybe they should put "Autumn Update" in there next?
