    I have win10 x64 version 1511 build 10586.545
    downloaded from this post
    and activated via Microsoft Toolkit v2.6 beta 5.

    I check Windows Update daily, but the anniversary update still doesn't appear.
    Does this happen to you too?
    Do I have to download the version 1607 ISO + run setup within Windows environment to install it, in order to get the update?
    Won't it appear in Windows Update?

    Version screenshots:

    PS. Sorry, if it has been asked before, but I couldn't find any relevant info.

    Yeah, DL and run it from the 1607 ISO within windows, save yourself some time and frustration.

    Mine didn't show up either so I clicked the "learn more" link on the WU page. that took me to the MS WU Anniversary update install page.
    I clicked the download "Get Anniversary update now" button & it DL a small installer file, I double clicked that & the Au started the DL, prep & install sequence.

    This has happened a few times for me while updating various W10 installs on a couple of my PC's

    Thanks to all for the replies, especially to EFA11 :
    I downloaded the ESD (once again from here), made an ISO, installed from inside Windows, and all went well :)

    I had Pro here and decided to switch to Enterprise using a generic key and then the toolkit and I'm not getting the update either, I guess I'll just be patient. I heard AU is really broken so I'm gonna ask myself if its worth it for Halo 5 Forge. I remember having to reinstall windows 10 just to upgrade to TH2 so if it gets stuck again I'm gonna blow a casket.
