Windows 10 Fall Creators Update download using Update Assistant

You can also get the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update installed on you device using the Update Assistant.

The Windows Fall Creators Update is slowly rolling out starting October 17, and if your device isn’t getting the new version through Windows Update, you can now use the “Update Assistant” tool.

The Windows 10 “Update Assistant” is a tool that Microsoft makes available for devices, which for unknown reasons are not getting the new update.

The tool works very similar to the Media Creation Tool, but with the difference that you can only do an in-place upgrade.

Upgrading using the Windows 10 Update Assistant

If you can’t wait until version 1709 is offered to you automatically, you can go to the Microsoft software support download page, and download the Update Assistant clicking the Update Now button.

Then double-click the file to launch the tool, and click the Update Now button.

If your device passes the hardware and software check, the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update will download, and then simply click the Restart Now button to begin the installation.

Your computer will reboot and the update will apply.

Installing the new version of Windows 10 should be an easy process, but if you experience any errors, bugs, or any other issue that you can’t figure out, you can submit your questions in the PUREinfoTech forums to get help. 

As always it’s recommended you make a full backup of your computer before proceeding. You can also use the following resources to learn more about the Creators Update:
