    Win10 download includes which recent updates? How to tell.


    How can I find out how up to date a Win10 image downloaded using the MediaCreationTool is before downloading it- whether it includes the update KB3200970 (Nov8) for instance? I would like to avoid downloading a new image if it doesn't include the latest cumulative update which tend to be quite large.

    Start the media creation tool. Accept the license agreement. Then with Media Creation Tool still open, look in C:\$Windows.~WS\Sources, right click on products.xml and select Edit. A few lines from the beginning you will see:

    <PublishedMedia id="1078" release="20160802 RS1 WU Win10 RTM">

    You can also look at the <Filepath>:
    http://fg.ds.b1.download.windowsupdate.com/c/updt/2016/07/14393.0.160715-1616.rs1_release_clientcombinedsl_ret_x86fre_ar-sa_d15640b1bc06916e610885a4b6695c72d67966ae.esd

    The bolded parts show you the release and RTM dates. Typically, Microsoft won't update the ISO file unless the major build number (14393 is the current series) changes.

    Thanks.
    Is the link above supposed to be browsable? I didn't see anything on that page.

    No. It's just an example of the line you will see in the .xml file.

    You can open an XML file in notepad, but for better formatting and readability, IE or some other browser may be preferable. Here's the difference:

    From Notepad:
    <?xml version='1.0' encoding='utf-8' standalone='yes'?><WindowsRE version="2.0"> <WinreBCD id=""></WinreBCD> <WinreLocation path="" id="0" offset="0"></WinreLocation> <ImageLocation path="" id="0" offset="0"></ImageLocation> <PBRImageLocation path="" id="0" offset="0" index="0"></PBRImageLocation> <PBRCustomImageLocation path="" id="0" offset="0" index="0"></PBRCustomImageLocation> <InstallState state="0"></InstallState> <OsInstallAvailable state="0"></OsInstallAvailable> <CustomImageAvailable state="0"></CustomImageAvailable> <WinREStaged state="0"></WinREStaged> <ScheduledOperation state="4"></ScheduledOperation> <OperationParam path=""></OperationParam> <OsBuildVersion path=""></OsBuildVersion> <OemTool state="0"></OemTool></WindowsRE>
    From MS Edge

    HTH,

    PS: Sorry, I couldn't lay hands on a "Products.xml" document without actually grabbing files from an ongoing install. Hope my alternate selection is OK.
