    win 10 pro build 10240 hasn't received the November update build 1511


    My win 10 pro build 10240 hasn't received the November update build 1511 while my other win 10 home versions have. I know I'm not the only one having this problem but here's my two cents. On my xw4600, I upgraded from win 8.1 pro to win 10 pro as soon as 10 was available some months ago. I still receive other windows updates. I downloaded the most recent iso from the media creation tool but I don't have an option to mount it from the right click menu. Both sfc and dism have no issues. I would burn it do a disk but I've read other users say its just reinstalled build 10240 instead.

    I was using another random win 10 pro computer at work today and noticed it hasn't received the November update yet either. Anyone else with win 10 pro that did get the update?

    Maybe this issue has more to it, like when I upgraded to 10 pro I had an issue with onedrive. I don't really use it so I only disabled it from startup in the task manager, but it as a service disappeared (except for registry entries and program files) and I haven't found a way to reinstall it ... yet. I know I could do a clean install of windows but that's not my style. I move from pc to pc over the years using disk images. This onedrive issue is the only problem I've come across that I haven't figured out, without a clean install. I mean, I wiped onedrive from my system completely, registry keys and all, but attempts to reinstall fall short (error corrupted file). During the attempted installation it places all its registry items and files, including the file it says is corrupt. Copy those files that are working on another computer, no dice. sfc and dism no issues. I'm getting off track. I was hoping the November update would fix it, but now that's an issue too.

    Maybe Microsoft delayed the November update on win 10 pro?

    Thanks in advance!

    Did you burn the iso to a bootable media, then insert the media to the computer ?
    If that was what you did, then you would NOT see the Mount option.
    Instead, you would see the Setup option. Use that to start the installation.

    1. Download the latest media creation tool from here:
    Windows 10

    Blue box, "Download tool now". Right click on the mediacreationtool.exe that gets downloaded and click on properties, then the details tab.

    win 10 pro build 10240 hasn't received the November update build 1511-capture.jpg

    If file version says 10.0.10586.0 then that mediacreationtool.exe will download build 10586. It is very odd that you cannot mount the ISO file, but if you burn a USB/DVD from the ISO and run setup.exe from it from inside Windows 10 it will upgrade you to build 10586.

    You can also download build 10586 ISO from Tech Bench:

    Also, if you insert the bootable dvd into the optical drive > right click at it > click "Install or run from your media".
    That will also start the installation.

    Thanks for the replies!

    Just checked, the MCT I have is version 10.0.10586.0

    It is very odd that you cannot mount the ISO file
    I agree. I checked a couple other win 10 computers this evening and all of them can mount iso. Something is definitely missing from my file system despite what sfc and dism say.

    ... burn a USB/DVD from the ISO and run setup.exe from it from inside Windows 10 it will upgrade you to build 10586.
    Also, if you insert the bootable dvd into the optical drive > right click at it > click "Install or run from your media".
    That will also start the installation.
    I've been trying to avoid burning the iso to disc due to what I mentioned in my OP but sounds like that is the only other option at the moment.

    I'll burn the iso and run the setup, should get around to that sometime tomorrow and I'll give an update later.

    Thanks again!

    Nice, it's on build 10586 now!

    It didn't fix onedrive but no worries.

    Thanks again!

    Curious, did it fix not being able to mount ISO files?

    Maybe try this?:

    1) right-click the iso, and select properties in the menu.

    2) Under Opens with, select Change to change the file association

    3) select Windows Explorer
