SOLVED: My Windows 10 Media Creation Tool Keeps Downloading the Old RTM July 2015 Release of

If you, like me, have blown your brains out trying to download TH2 November 2015 Update of Windows 10 using the Media Creation Tool, but keep sourcing the old TH1 July 2015 RTM version, this is the post for you.

EDIT: Aug 2019: The short answer is download the NEW Windows 10 Media Creation Tool for TH2 November Update to Windows 10 which looks EXACTLY like the old one.

The answer is to download the current Media Creation Tool directly from Microsoft as MS releases a new one twice per year.

If you check the properties of the MCT you will find that the build tells you what it is going to download:

    I tried upgrading o/s using the free upgrade tool from 8.1 with bing to windows 10, it failed and gut stuck to Asus preboot screen, the recovery tools all fail says error, and I cant revert back due to same odd errors. At this point I have downloaded the multimedia creation tool but it give me three options to create. Windows 10, Windows 10 home, and windows 10 N. I have no idea what o/s was upgraded to from 8.1 with bing to…? Please help what o/s version of 10 did you select?

      It would be likely Windows 10 Home. Windows 10 “N” is a version of Windows that does not include Media Player or IE as per a deal in the EU. Unless you are in the EU, I don’t think you can install “N”.
