    I did try but to no avail by

    tracefmt.exe -o windowsupate.log Windowsupdate.39765.1.etl Windowsupdate.39765.1.etl -r e:\Symbols

    Any hint would be appreciated.

    For Windows 7/8.1, the latest Windows10InsiderPreview.exe and reboot is a must for ESDs from Slow Ring.

    And the permanent address will be located at C:\Windows\WindowsUpdate.log shortly after the ESD download started.

    Can you please gently show a part of the WindowsUpdate.log that contains the link via PM, mate?

    Would like to adapt my WU TOOL to parse those comfortably.

    this will run for a bit, does like 8 or 9 passes (this is just one to show).

    Is this the same thing? I don't see any links in it lol

    I would need the %windir%\WindowsUpdate.log from a system that is searching for it via WU.


    NOTE: The log refreshs itself from down to top, so after several attempts info gets flushed.

    I didn't either. Whatever this is seems to be rather worthless for acquiring links. The get-bitstransfer thing works until reboot tho.

    For Windows 10, the ESD link is located in C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\DataStore\DataStore.edb

    The same way as we get the ZDP (e.g. windows10.0-kb3074674-x86_3165f806cd5e9d59cc0ccd34ea1d0e404bb3a147.cab).

    1. Open it with notepad, and find . e s d

    Find . e s d.png

    2. then you get a time-bombed link with space in between characters.

    Time-Bombed link.png

    3. Copy the full link content to a .txt and save.

    Code:
    h t t p : / / s h . d l . w s . m i c r o s o f t . c o m / d l / c o n t e n t / d / u p d t / 2 0 1 5 / 0 7 / 1 0 2 4 0 . 1 6 3 8 4 . 1 5 0 7 0 9 - 1 7 0 0 . t h 1 _ c l i e n t p r o _ r e t _ x 8 6 f r e _ e n - u s _ 8 3 d 0 e c e b e 1 c c d d e 0 8 a 1 4 4 a 3 4 d f 6 5 6 d 2 a f 4 8 c 6 b 8 4 . e s d ? P 1 = 1 4 3 7 4 6 5 3 2 4 & P 2 = 1 0 1 & P 3 = 1 & P 4 = c 9 9 W k F F % 2 f v 9 I P 1 5 T u n W U C q d 2 3 6 N c % 3 d
    4. Replace the space with nothing‚Äč, you get the link.e.g.

    Code:
    http://sh.dl.ws.microsoft.com/dl/content/d/updt/2015/07/10240.16384.150709-1700.th1_clientpro_ret_x86fre_en-us_83d0ecebe1ccdde08a144a34df656d2af48c6b84.esd?P1=1437465324&P2=101&P3=1&P4=c99WkFF%2fv9IP15TunWUCqd236Nc%3d
    [Note]
    To open DataStore.edb, you may need to stop Windows Update Service.

    Code:
    sc stop wuauserv

    @ xinso

    The good about parsing those logs directly from CMD is you don't neet to stop the service.

    Yeah, when opening it manually. I'll parse it through a for loop from admin running batch file.

    this is faster way to download esd files but it only goes upto build 10074.
    ms has removed the rest due to it only comeing out soon
