    Thanks for confirming. yes I was also. The one PC removed all references to Windows essentials and uninstalled them, and the other one left them alone.

    The Creators Update still isn't available in NZ. Does that sound unusual?

    Distribution globally generally will take some time. But you are not forgotten about just because of your particular location but the factor involving the weight of the loads placed on the MS servers! Whenever anything comes out "Everyone" wants to jump it placing huge loads on server time despite how well MS generally has things set up. Things do tend to get slow at times and once one region's weight is lifted the next region to come will be the ones putting the load on things. Be patient we have seen this all too often in the past well before 10 came along! What can I say?!

    Here I will simply be looking to run the MCT in order to secure the iso image at bit late having been caught up in another situation that came up. Shawn is free to pm me about that at any time. But I just wanted to get back to you people about the waiting times then can come up. When something new comes along the waiting lines grow and grow and everybody wants it all at once and that loads MS up big time! Be patient people.

    Anyone who wants to does not have to wait for the update to be pushed out to them - they can go ahead and run it on their own by visiting the same page where you grab the Media Creation Tool, Download Windows 10. (Caveat: I am in the US, so I cannot verify that the upgrade now button is avaialbe in all locales - but from what I ahve read, it should be)

    If you simply click on Upgrade Now you will be asked to download a small file named Windows10Upgrade9252.exe which, when you run, will download and install Creators Update for you in a similar manner as Windows Update would.

    A note of caution: If you run the tool, and then walk away, after completing the download, it gives you a 30 minute timer before it reboots your computer to start the update process - and then it will start on its own.

    I visited my parents last weekend and did 2 of their 3 computers in this exact manner. Saved passwords in Edge were erased, but otherwise, nothing too drastic occurred, and both upgraded machines are running perfectly fine.

    Well the unfortunate side of the direct download links there is for not seeing the retail iso downloads but Insider Builds, Enterprise, and Student edition downloads not the Home and Pro editions. I am running Insider Pro for testing on a second build but still have the 14393.187 build running 24/7 on the main build here. Being caught with a few other outside situations I haven't been able to keep everything up to date as I would otherwise prefer including Insider builds. The MCTool however was downloaded earlier and will be run to secure the proper iso image for this latest update. But this is additional input is always good for anyone who gets lost? while trying to get the latest!

    Now downloading the latest Creators Update by way of the Media Creation Tool's option of saving as an iso image which can be mounted to effectively run the update a bit faster then through the Windows Update tool or by way of booting live from either dvd or usb media. The advantage 10 brought in was the increased support for mounting iso disk images on virtual drives reducing the physical drive time previously seen with past versions.

    Agreed, although a hack is available to download the. ISO directly - it involves either:

    1). Running a non-Windows OS and navigating to the link to directly download the .ISO, or

    2). Using an add-on to change the browser's user-agent to fool the Micro$oft servers into thinking that you are not on a Windows-based machine to directly download the .ISO.

    However, I went ahead and used the Media Creation Tool, as it let me create dual architecture .ISOs of both Windows 10 and Windows 10 N. Less .ISOs to deal with

    W10 Pro x64/W7 Ultimate x64 dual boot main - W10 Pro Insider Preview/W7 Pro x64 - remote pc

    Well I am on the labtop following the main desktop to later see the second remote desktop only see Upgrade by Update by way of the Windows Assistant tool. The laptop having been removed temporarily from this location and no longer using the WiFi at another location was in a blind spot for the last month or so.

    At first connection to the MS servers for any updates wouldn't work and I still did not go with a flash drive after iso download for this build. On the second remote pc also needing to be updated I will again try to get or see if the iso disk for 10 Pro x64 not Education, Home, Enterprise is available. Both desktops as well as a Bought With 10 Already on it laptop last January will still see this build go on. Any Moment the laptop will need to restart at the 100% mark leaving only the remote pc.

    While the updated build going on as a regular WU update takes about an hour or so with the labtop now at about 12-13% the second remote desktop also seems to be having a smooth transition into the latest build without fuss by way of the WU once the Windows Assistant was clicked to start things going! Unlike a few glitches we all know about with previous versions including the success of a stable W7 MS finally is getting the WU update process in working orders after several smaller loose updates kept forcing a revert back to the previous. Each or every other update would reach the 100% mark and then taking along with it any other updates roll everything back as if nothing came in! Been seeing repeat itself over the last several months! Finally with this latest the need for any iso will be by the Full System Image Backup to be made later on each machine. For this latest build plus some other smaller updates while each takes a good hour to complete the WU is no longer at fault. I have to state the obvious! They did good this time around at least!

    Has anyone run into any major issues with the Creators Update? Should the install through Windows Update run as smooth as a manual install?
