Please update Windows ISO Downloader


Recommended Posts

Well: no new update after 1 year and (buggy sometimes and not loading): no section for Win 11, ARM version, new Office. Old apps are dead and still available for download, but the download link is dead, like: Microsoft Expression, etc.

Also, please create a Discord server if you can.

Thanks for the feedback. All those are reasons why a new tool is needed, and the existing one won't be updated.

The new downloader is supposed to be released before IE11 EOL, as the old one is likely going to cease working when MSIE gets removed from Windows systems.

IE11 EOL in mid-June 2022 applies only for certain Win10 editions.  IE11 on Win10 LTSC, Server and IE11 on Win7/8.x not affected by EOL announcement as noted in the IE retirement FAQ as IE11 for Win7/8.x got new updates in July 2022 (KB5015805) & August 2022 (KB5016618)

Which platforms will be affected when the IE11 desktop application is retired and goes out of support on June 15, 2022? (Updated: June 13, 2022)

In scope at the time of this announcement (will be retired):

  • Internet Explorer 11 desktop application delivered via the Semi-Annual Channel (SAC):
    • Windows 10 client SKUs
    • Windows 10 IoT

Out of scope at the time of this announcement (unaffected):

  • Internet Explorer mode in Microsoft Edge
  • Internet Explorer platform (MSHTML/Trident), including WebOC and COM automation
  • Internet Explorer 11 desktop application on:
    • Windows 8.1
    • Windows 7 Extended Security Updates (ESU)
    • Windows Server SAC (all versions)
    • Windows 10 IoT Long-Term Servicing Channel (LTSC) (all versions)
    • Windows Server LTSC (all versions)
    • Windows 10 client LTSC (all versions)
    • Windows 10 China Government Edition

What about Windows 10 LTSC and Windows Server? (Updated: November 19, 2021)

In-market Windows 10 LTSC and Windows Server are out of scope (unaffected) for this change. Windows Server 2022 and Windows 10 Enterprise LTSC 2021 are also out of scope.

 

unrelated news but recently the Fido tool from Rufus USB app can no longer download Windows ISOs from Microsoft as reported by Neowin

the Heidoc.net Windows ISO downloader 8.46 tool can still download Win10/Win11 & Win8.1 ISOs though

edit - apparently it was a temporary problem that lasted almost a day and the devs for Rufus/Fido have quickly fixed the problem

I am using v8.46.0.154 on Win 11 (x64)

I find the windows 10 selection tab is not working any more.....

Any solution forthcoming?

not yet.

and the Windows ISO Downloader tool currently does not have the newly released Windows 11 2022 Update (aka 22H2) ISO 22621.382 downloads mentioned, which Microsoft posted on Tuesday September 20.

both the tool and the server need to be updated for the 22H2 build 22621 release of Win11
would also be great if the Windows 10 and Windows 11 downloads were placed on "separate" sections in the next version of Windows ISO Downloader (one for Windows 10 and another for Windows 11 and not having both of them in the same section as they're already too many Win10/Win11 ISO downloads to be all shown in one screen)

The Windows 11 22H2 downloads seem to be under the “new additions” section at the moment

(And there seems to be a “phantom” download, the one ending with v1, i did try it but the download manager i use gave an error, whereas the other download works with no errors)

Sorry about the delay. I'm still working through some personal issues that take a lot more time than anticipated. The half finished Edge based app is still on my to-do list of course.  Maybe I can get back to development in a month or so.
