    Download the french 16251 iso from either @adguard's TB Unlocked site or the Insider Preview iso download site, install it in a VM and let it download the 16257 UUP files and when it wants to reboot, shut the VM down and map the vmdk and use the mapped drive as source for @abbodi1406's UUP>ISO v12 tool and you have the 16257 fr-FR iso.

    Noone knows why M$ creating bunch of useless editions, that's why masses misguided and started to think that x is better then y.

    Thank you.

    I installed the French version 16251. Downloaded version 16257 (currently waiting for installation).
    On the other hand I have 2 problems:
    1. UUP>ISO v12 did not recognize the path of the mapped drive as read-only.
    2. From the VM UUP>ISO v12 recognizes the path well but I have an error :

    ============================================================
    Creating install.wim . . .

    What sku are you trying to upgrade?

    At what stage did you run the conversion tool? It should be at the "restart" stage.

    Ah yes I did the manipulation before (@ currently waiting for installation)... Now it's OK.

    EDIT :
    I now try to convert this version (16257.1.170728-1700.RS3_RELEASE_CLIENTPRO_OEMRET_X64FRE_FR-EN.ISO) to Worstation version
    But the only choice I have is education !? :
    C:\WINDOWS\system32>dism.exe /image:c:\mount /Get-CurrentEdition

    Outil Gestion et maintenance des images de déploiement
    Version : 10.0.15063.0

    Version de l’image : 10.0.16257.1

    Édition actuelle :

    Édition actuelle : Professional

    L’opération a réussi.

    C:\WINDOWS\system32>dism.exe /image:c:\mount /Get-TargetEditions

    Outil Gestion et maintenance des images de déploiement
    Version : 10.0.15063.0

    Version de l’image : 10.0.16257.1

    Éditions vers lesquelles une mise à niveau peut être effectuée :

    Édition cible : Education

    But what sku is it? Pro for advanced pc's aka pro workstation? Because my 16251 pro workstation en-US VM wasn't able to even download the upgrade to 16257 (not on 16251.1 nor 26251.1000).

    I installed Windows10_InsiderPreview_Client_x64_fr-fr_16251.iso (pro version) from MSDN. I have not had problems downloading version 16257.1. But can not convert it to "Workstation" (see previous post).

    You can set-edition from Cloud or Home:

    From Cloud:
    Code:
    dism.exe /image:f:\mount /Get-TargetEditions
    
    
    Deployment Image Servicing and Management tool
    Version: 10.0.15063.0
    
    Image Version: 10.0.16251.1000
    
    Editions that can be upgraded to:
    
    Target Edition : Education
    Target Edition : Enterprise
    Target Edition : ProfessionalWorkstation
    Target Edition : ProfessionalEducation
    Target Edition : Professional

    I had hoped to be able to test that scenario when the 16251 Pro-WS would have been able to upgrade to 16257, one VM, offline set to Pro-WS and one by just switching the license.

    All or most features are now controlled by Product Policies, defined by the active license/key
    so either ways will have same outcome
