We now have an updated version of the Media Creation Tool application available for downloading the new Windows 11 version 23H2 images, enabling clean installations or updates. Fortunately, the market doesn’t solely depend on this tool, and there are interesting third-party alternatives, such as the Universal Media Creation Tool (UMCT), a third-party script for downloading images from Microsoft servers.
The thing is, UMCT has also received an update with support for Windows 11 versions 11H23 and 2H22, as announced by the German blog Deskmodder.
The new additions to the script are Windows 10 22H2, as well as Windows 11 22H2 and Windows 11 23H2. So far, these versions have not been included. Thanks to lzw29107 for updating the AveYo script. If you have downloaded the .bat MediaCreationTool file, just double-click to start the script. Then, you get the selection of current or previous ISOs for Windows 10 and Windows 11 offered by Microsoft.
For example, if you selected Windows 11 23H2, you can choose what you want to do: update, create ISO, create a USB memory, or start MediaCreationTool normally.
The script itself only controls what MediaCreationTool should run, which is downloaded from Microsoft after the selection. The MCT and files come directly from Microsoft, just as a note in case any questions arise.
With Universal Media Creation Tool, you can also downgrade your Windows version
Unlike the standard media creation tool for Windows 10 and 11, which only allows downloading the latest versions, the UMCT script provides access to all versions, up to the initial version of Windows 10, version 1507. It can also get you enterprise editions if that’s something you need. In addition to downloading files and generating images, UMCT can “burn” ISO files to USB drives, providing you with ready-to-use installation media.
The fact that it now allows upgrading to the latest versions of Windows is excellent news because until now, we were quite limited if we wanted to use the tool. Well, it only made sense when downgrading between versions. Now we can opt for an upgrade or revert it to the version we want.
A secure tool, but not suitable for every user
In case of any doubts, Universal Media Creation Tool is a secure tool. It doesn’t download images from third-party servers or modify any original files; everything it uses is downloaded from Microsoft’s official servers. So, you can be at ease in this regard, as there won’t be anything that could interfere with your system.
Unfortunately, it’s not a tool for everyone. Firstly, it’s a script, and you need to have some knowledge to run it. It’s not overly complex for an advanced user, but less experienced users may encounter problems they may not know how to resolve.
