    Thank you for the clarification. You are a dear ;)

    I wish the OP or the creator put in a note stating that the tool does not do direct ISO downloads.

    I read it and that's why I ask that didn't understand what you want. At first you said that business and then right away you asked for Pro.
    That is why I asked for clarification, whichever you want or You want both. So what do you really want? That is possible understand, that it should be x64 and lang should be Italian.

    Here's what I really need to download:

    1. official ISO from Microsoft, not homebrew ones
    2. Business edition of Windows 10 Pro (VL)
    3. Language: Italian
    4. x64

    But Enthousiast has clarified that the UMT (Universal Mediacreation Tool) does not do direct ISO downloads.

    Please explain what is "2. Business edition of Windows 10 Pro (VL)". Please have mercy on a stupid person who doesn't know what it is. Tell me at least something about this version.

    This is my first time using this tool. I ran the "MediaCreationTool.bat" file, selected the 1909 [19H2] option and made an enterprise ISO, but when I check the "install.esd" version with the "Get-WimInfo" command in CMD, it says it's the 18362.418 (1903).

    What did I do wrong?

    P.S. it also says that it's the "Education" edition, but I suppose that's alright since education, enterprise and professional editions are now combined, right?

    OK, I just installed from the image and it is 1909 as it should be; the exact version shown in windows settings is 18363.418, but isn't this a preview build? Shouldn't it be 476, the first public build?

    With 1909 no build actually was a preview build as with normal major new builds, it's just 1903 + 20KB update (1909 EP) + 1903 updates.

    Ah, so this is basically: 18362.418 + small 1909 update = 18363.418.

    Bump for 2004 unpolished, meh first release.
    Is it just me, or uupdump had a regression along the way and creating an ISO via MCT is again faster for this build?

    Depends, UUP integrates the updates when the ISO is created, the ESDs already had that done at forehand.

    out of interest; why do we need an outdated MCT?

    Once a new release is public, MCT will only create the latest version.
    You don't see a problem with that?
    - what if the latest version has breaking changes for your hardware and you can't even finish setup..
    - what if the latest version is very bugged on release (1809 was data-loss level of bugged)..
    - what if the latest version makes your games stutter (standby memory bug has plagued 1703-1803 for years; only few months ago nvidia made a proper workaround but sadly won't be ported to legacy cards)..
    - what if you simply want to have the choice of an older version for whatever reason - as long as it's not EOS, it should be easily available for everybody. Feature updates are optional despite MS trying to push new ones down your throat..
    In 2018 we had all 5 Redstone versions, in 2019 two new versions, with 1607 and 1703 Edu/Ent going EOL, and until October+ this year we have 6 versions to choose from starting with 1709 Edu/Ent.
    As for why use MCT instead of other methods, there are many reasons:
    - convenience of a few clicks in a familiar GUI, instead of crying for specific ISO links on forums, searching for the right ESD direct link to be used with keyboard-based scripts etc.
    - smallest download (way smaller than a full ISO) and reliable resume (one guy has downloaded 1803 in a time span of a week lol)
    - built-in ability to create all-in-one 32bit and 64bit ISO and - featured here - ability to create business (Enterprise) ISO
    - initial process does extra compatibility checks and logs problems with upgrades; it also creates windows-standard bootable usb
    - it's fast
    The only downside is that ESDs are not re-released often so the build number gets outdated. I personally don't see it as a problem since I have to install a new CU every month, anyway (or not :D).
    Lastly, haven't done extensive comparisons, but subjectively it seems to have caused less failures to install a new CU over time, compared with manual/w10ui/uupdump integrated updates base image.
