I'm on W10 1607 14393.1593 ... I would have expected I would have been offered the Creators Update via the normal update path by now ... but I haven't.

 

How do I know if MS just hasn't gotten around to my machine (my cohort I guess it's called) ... or if I have a configuration problem or whatever going on that is preventing me from receiving the update?

 

I've considered using the Update Assistant ... but I don't wanna do anything too hasty that could create a bunch of problems.

 

Thanks!

There are still a great many who have not been added to one of the cyclic update cohorts for Creators Update.

 

At this juncture the update window is in its latter half so there does not appear to be any "added risk" from forcing the update now whether using the Update Assistant on the Microsoft Windows 10 Download Page or the instructions for Updating Windows 10 using the Windows 10 ISO file.

 

I have done the latter on several Windows 10 machines, including one that I had to restore from the factory restore partition and that restored to the very first version of Windows 10.  Those updates have gone without a hitch.

As per https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4013214 ... I need KB4013214 before I can be offered the Creators Update.

 

I do not have KB4013214 unless it was included in some other update. Clicking on "Learn more" in Windows 10 update takes me to a list of updates that apply to my version of Windows 10 ... but KB4013214 is not listed.

 

Do I need to hunt down and install KB4013214 before I try to update to the Creators Update.

 

BTW ... per Programs and features > View installed updates ... the only KB I have installed are 4034658, 4035631, 3186568, 4023834, 4013418, 3211320, 3199986, 3199209, 3176936 ... But ... Update status > Update history ... says "No updates have been installed yet" ... So I dunno which to believe.

 

Thanks!

According to the link that you provided

 

https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4013214

 

anyone one of these updates will contain the update that you need;

If you want to update manually, you can also do that.

Either of the methods I mentioned earlier, plus the ones mentioned by Rocky Bennett, will get all necessary unapplied updates that may be missing as part of the update process.
