Download Official Windows 10 Anniversary Update ISO Files

Direct links! Microsoft did not make it all that straightforward to download the official Windows 10 Anniversary ISO files when it launched this big refresh for its OS.

That was yesterday, I believe.

Initially the links that were available took downloaders to a page for Windows Insiders that were directed to download the latest preview version, which is to say build 14393.

The company, of course, also offered several other methods for users to deploy the Anniversary Update, including Windows Update and as noted, MSDN link. However, some folks do prefer the idea of standalone ISOs for the purpose of clean installing and going in with a fresh start.

Besides, ISO files can also be used to create installation media like USB drives and discs that open up the possibility of installing the operating system on multiple PCs and devices.

Very helpful for system administrators.

Anyway, Redmond has also made the ISOs available via the Media Creation Tool that also guides users through the necessary steps to create bootable installation media. But direct links are also available below for easy downloading.

The ISO files are available both in 32-bit and 64-bit versions, which let you download and install Windows 10 Anniversary Update anywhere you want.

They are rather chunky, with the x86 version coming in at 3.2 GB, and the x64 weighing in at 4.1 GB.

Meaning they will take a bit of a time for you to download, minutes or hours, depending on the speed of your Internet connection. These are hosted directly on Microsoft servers, so fire off your download engines and grab them.

Oh, and these can be used to install the Home and Pro versions of Windows 10 Anniversary Update with the US English as the language.

  1. can i use the iso for the uk version on windows 10, and will it auto update the activation of my digital product key.

    • See my comment above for a workaround. I have added spaces to the link as this site appears not accept direct links. Just delete the spaces either side of the dots.

  2. i get the 403 forbidden error also why is that. Also have a question is this Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1607 for x64-based Systems (KB3176929) the same thing as the anniversary update?

    • Yes they are both the same thing. Click on Winkey+R to open the Run Box and type winver
      This will confirm your version. The Anniversary Version is 1607 (OS Build 14393.10)

  3. Workaround:
    1) Download the MediaCreationTool from Microsoft and open it.
    2) Select the option “Create installation media for another PC”.
    3) If you need to change your Language, Edition or Architecture then un-check the tick box “Use the recommended options for this PC” and use the drop down boxes to change the default settings.
    4) Click next and save the Windows.iso to your Download Folder.
    5) Burn the iso and keep the disc safe.
