With 20/20 hindsight I realise I should have labelled my sticks somehow.

 

But I didn't.

 

So I have a handful of USB sticks with Win10 installs on them created by the MCT.

 

Short of actually installing from them, is there any way I can tell what version of Win10 is on them?

I have Win 10 on USB downloaded using MCT.

 

Re-installs Home or Pro depending what was previously on the computer.

So I do know that any USB stick created now will have 1709 on it.

 

But most of these sticks will have something earlier.

I believe the MCT gives you the latest version of Win 10.

 

I see what you are saying about your mixed bag of MCT USB sticks.

 

I would clean them all up and get the latest download.

hio77:

Because that is not what I want to do.

 

I want to be able to determine what version of Windows 10 is on my sticks.

 

Some have an earlier version which I do not want to over-write.

(googling : reply #2 in this thread https://www.tenforums.com/installation-upgrade/55808-what-version-win-10-media-creation-tool-giving.html)

 

As for the version in the .iso look at Properties of the setup.exe file and the Details tab.

You can use DISM from elevated powershell/cmd

 

dism /get-wiminfo /wimfile:D:\sources\install.wim /index:1

That's brilliant, it gives me, 32 or 64 bit info, US or UK language, and a build number.

 

I have found a table that coverts builds into versions.

 

Everything I need to know. About Windows 10 install files anyway.
