Useless Media Creation Tool for Windows 10 V1903 released

There are reports, an updated version of Microsoft's Windows Media Creation Tool (MCT) has (allegedly) appeared, which can be used to create an installation medium for Windows 10. Unfortunately this MediaCreationTool1903.exe program still won't download the install image of Windows 10 May 2019 Update (V1903). Instead it downloads the old Windows 10 V1809 build – despite the name is MediaCreationTool1903.exe.

    Do NOT use the MediaCreationTool1903.exe tool right now as the actual 1903 downloads are not available yet…until next month.

      forget it guenni – Microsoft has just pulled the MediaCreationTool1903.exe file off their servers and now produces a 403 forbidden error message when attempting to get the new 1903 MCT file

        the tool and RTM build are now out. it is currently available as an ISO download or in-place upgrade, with public updates via windows update to follow in the next couple of weeks to a month. Enterprise users can receive the update through windows update starting now, with skip ahead users already starting to see them filter in.

        to download the ISO. you need to be signed in as a local admin to initiate the download. also to avoid permission issues as I have, download the ISO to the root of the C: drive.

        here's the link right from MS:

    I have installed Win10 Version1903 via the Windows Insider. Having done so it created so many problems, it was giving me on start-up A Temporary User Profile.
    Anyway, I got shot of that and Reinstalled Win10 Version1809.
    I have not yet had any problems with that one
    I have stopped Win10 from Updating the Official Version of1903 when it's time to Update.
    My opinion is leave it alone.

    The Media Creation tool for 1903 has been made available from Microsoft as of Tuesday May 21 and it CAN download the 1903 ESD files, which have build 18362.30.
