Here’s how you can manually download Windows 10 Creators Update before its official release
While the Windows 10 Creators Update doesn’t roll out until April 11th, Microsoft is however allowing it’s users to manually install the update who cannot wait for the release. The Redmond giant released a Windows 10 Update Assistant tool on April 5 that will help users upgrade to the official Creators build. However, note that this tool does not support Enterprise editions.
The tool installs Build 15063 of the Windows 10 Insiders Build program, which will become the official Windows 10 Creators Update next week. Those interested in downloading the tool can do so via the Microsoft site. This option is intended for advanced users on devices running a licensed version of Windows 10. If you don’t have Assistant, then click here to download it, and follow the instructions to update to version 1703.
Once you have downloaded the Creators Update, there are chances that there will be additional updates between now and when Microsoft officially sends the Windows 10 Creators Update out through the official Windows Update mechanism.
“The Creators Update is designed to spark and unleash creativity, bringing 3D and mixed reality to everyone and enabling every gamer to be a broadcaster,” said Yusuf Mehdi, Corporate Vice President for the Windows and Devices Group, last week when announcing the availability of the Windows 10 Creators Update. “Beyond creativity, it brings new features to Microsoft Edge, additional security capabilities and privacy tools, and so much more.”
Additionally, Microsoft has also released the final version of the Windows 10 Creators Update software development kit (SDK), along with an update to Visual Studio 2017 intented to support the final Creators SDK.
