How to work around “Thank you for updating to the latest version of Windows 10”

Getting “Thank you for updating to the latest version of Windows 10” message with an exit button rather than the option to upgrade to Windows 10 Fall Creators Update?

I’ve been waiting for the Fall Creators update to be available so that I can now start using the Files On Demand feature that allows you to see files from OneDrive that have not been synched down to the pc yet – a feature that used to be called placeholders. I saw it demoed at Ignite and this finally means Onedrive for Business can be useful for businesses now.

Anyway – In a classic sleepless early morning I checked Windows Update last night and this morning and it said that my computer was up to date.

Checking the Windows 10 download page, and then using the update now button downloads the upgrade tool but I then get “Thank you for updating to the latest version of windows 10” error message.

The trick is to download the  “create media tool”. Oddly enough, the first question this tool asks is if you want to update this machine or download the media iso to update other machines.  Pick the first option and away you go!

Now where did paint go? 😉

So what new features are you looking forward to using?

Thank you for upgrading dialog box after upgrading to latest Windows 10 versionI downloaded the Creators Update last night and did an in place upgrade on my Surface last night and the upgrade went nice and smoothly.

I especially liked the tutorial that pops up with the different features that come with this edition of the Edge browser. As the upgrade isn’t available via Windows Update just yet, you can get a sneak peak at the extra features by looking at the tutorial here.I like the ability to pin and save pages for later and the drop down preview for finding a tab is pretty handy – but it will be interesting to see how well this works when you have tons of tabs open.  The combination of Tabman Tabs Manager and OneTab work well for this in Chrome with the former allowing you to get a drop down list of all the tabs open (but no preview) and the latter instantly closing all open tabs and saving them into a html page for later reference – both highly recommended for keeping all those tabs you might read later and reducing the memory footprint for Chrome.

Note you can do a manual install now by going to and selecting the option to update now. A small stub file will download, you run this, confirm you really do want to upgrade to the latest version and it downloads in the background. Once downloaded it will automatically install 30 minutes later with several reboots but you can pause or run it now as required.
