    Yes they work :)

    The encryption keys used in the older tool were the issue; sometimes the tool / script worked with 10158 ESD file, sometimes not. If they worked and the ISO was created, the ISO is OK.

    The new tool has updated encryption keys and works every time with Build 10158 and later ESD files.
    Oh good. Thanks.
    So the new tool link is at the beginning of this thread? I'll have to go look again....didn't see it...

    depends on where you pulled the ESD from..

    Not all ESD's are encrypted - ESD is also a compression format

    If you do not receive a message of the decryption in process - then the ESD is not encrypted
    This tutorial is only meant to assist Windows 10 users to convert their encrypted Microsoft Windows 10 ESD files to an ISO image. The modified script / tool in this tutorial is for that purpose only and needs the RSA keys.

    the first script only needed a second crypto key added
    Quite a lot of things can be done in lot of different ways. I see no point in your attempt to make this even more confusing, at the same time as I try to make this as easy as possible to our members.

    Yes, every geek can change or add the keys in the .cmd file. Instead of posting about this fact, why did you not post the instructions?

    Yes, there are many other ways to create an ISO. Yes, I have tried and will try to make this as easy as possible to as many users as possible.

    Bottom line: the tool works!

    tool works on both encrypted and decrypted 4 index ESD's to create an ISO

    You point is? Oh, forget it. I give up. Before giving up, let me just say that the Windows 10 ESD files are encrypted.

    what you get depends on when you pull it

    Can't you read or do you have some issues to understand written text? Windows 10 ESD files are encrypted, that's why in order to create an ISO image from a Windows 10 ESD file, the RSA keys have to be there and they have to be valid.

    Kari,
    not here to argue with you..

    I have been pulling decrypted 4 index ESD's from MS downloads since windows 8.1 fist came out..

    NEVER have I seen any script or edited script run through the decryption process

    even with build 10158

    just saying..

    The fact is that the Windows 10 ESD files are encrypted. The fact is that the tutorial has now two versions of the script / tool, one with correct RSA keys to work with every ESD file in Build 10130 and older, and the other with correct RSA keys to work with Build 10158 and later ESD files.

    Everything else is splitting the hair, making this already for some users quite complicated process even more complicated. We are not here to talk about unencrypted ESD files, or what else you can do with them, or how to modify the script.

    This tutorial is to show how to make an ISO image from the Windows 10 ESD file, offering the tools for it and showing how to use them.

    the same crypto key found in the older version of this tutorial's script -
    is also found in newer version - the newer version also contains a second newer crypto key

    so in theory the newer version should also work with older windows 10 versions

    Since I pull my ESD's after the MS decryption process of the downloaded file - I have no need for decryption
    and if I can pull decrypted ESD files - I would assume others could too..

    Sorry for jumping on your thunder..
