    Thank you for your great work!
    Just I don't get why you prefer the gist rather than the regular Github, which helps in keeping trace of the versions etc.

    I have a Windows 10 Enterprise 2016 LTSB (Volume License) ISO, which I mostly used in virtual machines.
    When I reinstall it, the upgrade takes a lot of time and often crashes the VM. So I would like to make an ISO with recent updates.

    Since I have a valid product key, using your tool I would download an ISO compatible with it.
    From the registry I get:

    ReleaseId 1607
    BuildLabEx 14393.2665.amd64fre.rs1_release.181203-1755
    UBR 2670
    EditionID EnterpriseS

    Despite the ID, it does not work in S mode (I can use the shell etc.)


    Which OPTIONS should I set/uncomment?

    Is the following the current valid link?

    LTSB/C isn't available this way. Check the SVF Repo or SVF2ISO tool to get this version.

    The 'S' is not related to the old (deprecated) S edition which showed 'Cloud' as EditionID ;).

    bump for 1909 (using 1903 mct.exe but we all know it does not make a real difference)

    good to see you back to business :D

    i am running LTSC 1809 in normal user mode
    i will investigate some issues linked to "Microsoft MediaCreationTool" but not your script
    * even launched form an admin cmd terminal, the script ends just after downloading & extracting product xml with no warning
    * Launched from a user with admin rights (at windows login), "Microsoft MediaCreationTool" is launched but say incompatible with current OS

    i will take some time to look at this

    @c6p0, did you solve your issue?
    also, bump for new 1909 hard-coded links (but technically it creates the same 18363.418 build)

    I just wish to download the full iso of a particular language. It will be used as a backup in case I need to perform a clean install of the OS.

    Is the Universal MediacreationTool.bat able to download for me the full ISO, x64 business version of say, Microsoft Windows 10 Pro (Italian)?

    I don't know what's causing the error on your end. Maybe a configuration on your OS?

    Check the Sticky Threads for other download options.

    The MCT and this project download ESD files and locally create an ISO from it, no direct ISO download.
