Just downloaded the latest version of the Media Creation Tool on two different PCs, one brand new and the one I'm posting from.  I'm getting the same error message at the startup screen on both.

 

I have tried what I've found documented out there in cyberspace (by the way, I have no "Unblock" option in General Properties).

 

Just wondering if anyone knows if this is a temporary and recurring problem on Microsoft's end?  I have never had this issue with the Media Creation Tool at any time in the past.  Perhaps I was just lucky.

OK.  On this new machine I'll try the "Update Now" button and hope it works.  I was shocked to find that Version 1511 is what's on this thing coming out of the box.

Most are saying it has to do with a server issue on MS end.

Apparently it must, as the "Update Now" button downloads the updater software and that software is having no trouble downloading the update components.

 

I just prefer to have the ISO, as I suspect I'll need it in the near future.

A few reports suggested trying a different network(ISP) if you have received the error code above as some have done so and it allowed them afterwards(just think it randomly worked for them personally).

Had this problem as well now. Switched from corporate network/firewall to using mobile broadband and it worked straight away.

At what point does the tool fail? I don't normally use the tool because I make my own installation media using Microsoft's daily UUP files, but I just ran the tool successfully to see if it would work for me. I downloaded the entire ISO file and completely created the installation media in about 8 minutes and I did not experience anything unusual.

It usually fails not long into the process, less than two minutes.

 

On starting, I get this Windows Splash Screen:

 

Attached File  01_Windows_Splash.jpg   7.54KB   0 downloads

 

followed shortly after by the "getting things ready" screen:

 

Attached File  02_Getting_Ready.jpg   30.23KB   0 downloads

 

followed shorty after by (I could have possibly missed a screen here, as I was pasting the second for saving, by the time I got back there could have been one I missed):

 

Attached File  03_Failed.jpg   47.67KB   0 downloads

 

 

I just did this run of the Media Creation Tool moments before making this post.

 

Prior to this recent, and consistent, spate of failures with the MCT it had worked without fail.  It's really not acceptable (nor useful for Microsoft, really) for the "fix" to be, "Find another network to download over."  I work from home; I've been downloading via the MCT over Verizon DSL for over two years; it needs to function normally again, period.

Rocky,

 

            Not that I don't appreciate the pointer, but my tag line above my avatar says it all about this particular thread.  Nothing from it worked.

 

            As one of the early participants noted, I'm getting this across multiple machines.  Also, I have no idea who ever had an "Unblock" checkbox to uncheck, but it certainly has never appeared on the properties for the MCT that I have downloaded.

I find it odd that this tool only fails for some people and yet works perfectly well for other people. I don't normally use this tool because I keep a loaded USB stick handy, but when I tried it this morning it worked perfectly.

Have you tried using rufus to create the drive? I have had the most success using it.

This question has nothing to do with this thread.

I notice a lot of the "answers" seem to be switch ISP.  I am having the same issue using Verizon FIOS.  Britech mentioned he is using Verizon DSL. 

 

Anyone else using Verizon and NOT experiencing this issue?
