    I'm respecting Microsoft's decision to temporarily retire 1809 and so I have not added an workaround, but those that used the script before have the necessary products_20180924.cab cached locally and can still create RS5 media.

    Update: adjusted script for easy splitting into a lite version (not generating RS1/RS2 business entries) that fits in the post code box, and a full version (linked).

    Regular products.xml link still works, if you want to mod it/cab it on fly for MCT

    Yeah I know, but like I've mentioned above I'm giving MS more time on this one and won't add an workaround. Let's hope tomorrow will be redemption day :p

    Just don't bother with that stuff! Use the script in OP, it's plain-text, verified, downloads mct and products.cab only from official microsoft links!

    @BAU is there a way to download only the 1803 update file, coz i already have a win10 disc with update 1709? i dont wanna download the entire win10 v.1803 ISO again.

    I don't get your question - you simply use the script and select 1803 version - it will download the 1803 esd that is a lot less size than the iso - and then mct can create an iso / usb locally

    forgive me sir, coz i am a total noob in this area. if i run that batch file, it will give me an option to download the 1803 update only (which is smaller compared to the entire 1803 version windows 10 ISO), which can be used to update my windows 1709 installation?

    There is no such thing for 1709 to 1809.

    Only thing would be an SVF patch but that would need someone to create/upload (using the exact ISO you have as base) and will most likely be quite big.

    stuff happens with online sharing sites, av's false-positive sfx with exes included, etc. no need to assume it was malicious and ask for drastic measures without proof, just saying.

    I've been waiting for Microsoft to refresh links with patched 1809 against data-loss, as I don't want to be responsible for such calamity in the slightest.

    I understand, thank you for the reply
    a new attempt with RS4, another problem : the script seems to stop after creation of products.xml
