    Nobody is misleading anyone.
    It's the filename, nothing more.
    If you think the msdn isos are not the same version number, you're mistaken.
    They are all 17050.

    The lesser components inside the image have lesser version numbers but the entirety is 17050.

    Those names and numbers are provided by MS, you can go ask them why :D

    nonetheless, i'll add a note that the ESDs are the same as MSDN ISOs

    I'm not the guy who named the files. Get mad at Microsoft for making it 17050.

    You shouldn't focus on the labels anyway.
    You should focus on the packages that are integrated, SKUs, and the languages...
    These have the same packages as the MSDN versions.
    Let's just call them comparable.

    murphy78,
    yes, I also saw these
    they appear after you install updates from WU
    but there is no files with 6.3.9600.17050
    in esd-image

    There probably is. MS is not known for just randomly calling things a higher number than files are present.
    It might be hidden system files, or some other servicing things or something...
    Lets just say that it's confusing and be friends ok?
    It's the packages that are important...

    I'm pretty sure the store downloads this exact same file, so no... I don't believe there's a different way to do it.

    Speaking of which... how did we find the esd links last time?, because it would be really handy to not have to download these things from file hosting sites if MS is already hosting them.
    Is there any way to capture file download urls in a network monitor program or something?
