    Where is the Anniversary Update?

    The anniversary update of August 2nd is version 1607 right? My PC version is still 1511 and it's August 12? Anyone else still on the older version? Did Microsoft announce how long a period this update will go on?

    All Microsoft has said is that it is rolling out the release gradually. There has been no stated timeframe that I've seen. See How to get the Windows 10 Anniversary Update for more information.

    If you don't want to wait, use the link below and click the Get the Anniversary Update now button

    https://support.microsoft.com/en-ca/...setting_client

    That was how I got mine. I did not want to wait.
    When you click that button, Windows 10 Upgrade Assistant will be downloaded to your computer. If that goes well, it will automatically start downloading and installing the Anniversary Update.

    Good luck.

    Omega3,

    There is another way to install the Anniversary Update.

    Use the Media Creation Tool (MCT) link:
    https://www.microsoft.com/en-ca/soft...7-5e88c0e053ec

    I cannot be certain whether the Update Now button will install the Anniversary Update as I do not use it. But, I assume it will.

    I did use the same link to download the Anniversary Update iso file.
    So, it goes to show that the Update Now button should be for installing the latest Win 10 version, which is, in this case, the Anniversary Update.

    I used the Media Creation Tool on 3 August 2016 to download to an 8GB USB thumbdrive because I had two of my own systems to upgrade as well as being prepared to upgrade customers' systems without having the large download each time. This was Version 1607 (OS Build 14394.10).

    Click on the "Download tool now" button then save the tool somewhere you'll be able to find it (it's tiny so will download very quickly) then run the tool and choose whether you want to use a DVD or USB.

    Yes, there has been one-or-two "cumulative" updates since 14393.10.

    Whoops! I just noticed 14394.10 in my #5 post (should have been 14393.10.

    Pro or Home? If Pro, do you have Defer Updates set?

    One of my laptops updated to the anniversary update. I'm hoping Microsoft forgets to update the other two. The update screwed up the start menu, turned off file sharing, lost the homegroup, and eliminated most of my personal settings. If I could turn off windows updates like I've done with all previous versions of windows, I certainly would do it. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
