I used the Media Creation Tool to create an ISO of the Windows 10 Anniversary update (or so I hope).

Is there any way of verifying the Windows version of the ISO?

  • What is the name of the iso file ? Is there something like 14393 or 1607 in that file name ? – CodeIt Aug 2 '16 at 12:17

Mount the ISO and note down the drive-letter. Let's say it's E:\

Right-click Start, click Command Prompt (Admin)

Type the following command and hit ENTER

dism /Get-WimInfo /WimFile:E:\sources\install.wim /index:1

In case you don't have the install.wim file (you may have install.esd you used the Media Creation Tool), use this command:

dism /Get-WimInfo /WimFile:E:\sources\boot.wim /index:1

You can see the Version number there.

I don't think you need to verify your ISO, however, if you know your version and Edition of Windows then you can check the build number as stated in this article. Then you can be sure that you have the official version. Please let me know if you need help regarding your build number.

Thank you.
