    That was it! Thanks.
    Do we all need to make this change on our end, of have you updated the tool to have this fix in it now, Kari?

    Sorry, you are not reading it correctly.

    You must find the UUP folder, which is a subfolder in C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download, or in your case in C:\Windows.old\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download

    In File Explorer, browse to C:\Windows.old\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download. You will see that it has several subfolders named with a hexadecimal string. Only one of these folders contains an ESD file, that's the folder we want.

    An easy way to find correct folder: Still in Download folder, type EXT:ESD in Search field to find the ESD file. When Search has found it, right click the ESD file and select Open file location:
    Now you have opened the correct folder. Copy the path and paste in UUPtoISO:

    Kari,

    Thanks for the detailed explanation. Looks like after upgrading, the ESD's disappear and isn't in the Windows.old folder. I have searched using the ext:esd option in the C:\Windows.old\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download folder and nothing comes up:

    I should mention that after the upgrade, this sentence you wrote ("You will see that it has several subfolders named with a hexadecimal string. Only one of these folders contains an ESD file, that's the folder we want. ") doesn't seem relevant to me as I only see 1 folder with a hexadecimal string, not several:

    After clicking on this only hexadecimal folder, instead of being presented with .cab files like in the window you have shown, I am presented with .xml files instead:

    In addition, when I do search for ext:esd in this hexadecimal folder, nothing comes up that matches the esd extension:

    So, maybe the .esd files are gone, even after the upgrade and is gone from the windows.old folder?

    Any clarification would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you again Kari!

    You just need that download folder, not the search for the .esd files anymore with the beta tool.

    Just point it to the folder.

    For further clarification: follow the current directions explicitly, and don't do things that you remember doing with the old method.

    Well, I don't see where to make this change, so it's either 1) made, or 2) in the executable itself lol.

    My mistake, I was wrong, you were doing it correctly, and it looks like it is not there for you this time around. Interesting.

    So, maybe Kari should update the beta guide or notes and make sure that it mentions that creating the ISO after upgrading is still not possible?

    You have to place that hexfolder in your path:

    C:\Windows.old\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download\hexFolderName

    The full path from the 3rd screenshot should be the correct one, but if you don't have the correct files in it, then it won't work.

    You didn't enable ESD downloads, did you?
