    Yes, so did I. What was leaked was where to find it on Microsoft's servers - that was supposed to be a secret

    Ooops! That's a slip of the fingers during install. The media that MCT makes includes Home and Pro, I used it to upgrade 1703 Pro to 1709 Pro without a problem.

    Windows 10 Pro 64bit 1709 16299.19

    Yeah Mine didn't pickup on Pro, didn't even see the Product key window, install was very fast, didn't even think of checking it wasn't Pro til I went to setup Remote Desktop lol, then i'm like doh!

    Generic key won't take

    No sign of Activation trouble shooter

    So options are do 15063 Pro install (Cleanly), wait til tomorrow and get Fall Creator ISO, and do inplace upgrade, and hopefully can get that one back to Pro, Or Full Clean install of Fall Creators

    System image restore from 15063 Pro no worky lol, picks up Windows 10 Home Key, try to upgrade to Pro in the past with that, and said wasn't activated

    Setup does that on a clean install if it finds a Windows 8 key in the PC's firmware. Your machine must have originally been supplied with W8 Home.

    Triple boot - Win 10 Pro, Win 10 Pro Insider (2) - (and a sprinkling of VMs)

    I used it to upgrade my lappy (SP3) and everything went perfect, except did not get FOD for OneDrive. I'll crowbar it in later after it gets released to the world.

    Can I let Windows install the update on Tuesday/Wednesday then create the tool after that?
    You have two options. You could wait for Windows Update to say your machine is ready to get the Fall Creators Update and update you automatically. Microsoft use a phased rollout for delivering new versions so you won't necessarily get it on Tuesday/Wednesday. Generally the newest and most compatible machines get it first. Additionally, for known issues with particular hardware Microsoft will block you getting it through windows update until the issues are resolved. The rollout can last for months, some posters are reporting they've only just got the Creators Update through windows update.

    If you can't wait, the other option is to download the install media and upgrade manually. This is where the Media Creation Tool can be used. Microsoft have warned in the past that by installing manually you are bypassing their checks for known issues. If you are unlucky enough to have hardware issues (it was Broadcom last time) you may find things like WiFi don't work. If so, you have 10 days in which you can undo the upgrade and revert to your current system.

    Right-click on the MCT file, select properties, then details & the version will be shown.
    Today, it asks to download the latest version of MCT, which is the previous version.

    It's shown in another thread.

    When you click on the new version it gives you the version that you are on and not 16299.19

    That leaked MCT is 16299.15, when run is says it's not the latest. Its link to get the latest version gets you the latest officially released MCT - the one for 15063. You can, with a little bit of extra effort, run the leaked MCT to make an iso for the FCU, RFS linked to an article with the instructions. But it's only a day until the official release, so hardly worth the bother.

    I already have an Imaged 16299.15 anyway so I will just start tomorrow with that build.
