Windows 10 development environment VHD RRS feed

  • Question

  • I navigated to https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/downloads/virtual-machines and downloaded WinDev1709Eval.HyperV.zip but it turned out to be Version 10.0.15063 (rs2) instead of Fall Creators Update as advertised on the page...

    This forum is discuss Visual Studio WPF/SL Designer, Visual Studio Guidance Automation Toolkit, Developer Documentation and Help System, and Visual Studio Editor.

    Since your problem is more related to development environment on Windows 10, I help you move this thread to Windows forum to get a better help. Thanks for your understanding.

    It was Windows 10 1709 VHD.

    After downloading WinDev1709Eval.HyperV.zip. unzip it to show as blow:

    Here I suggest you re-download it and unzip it to confirm.

  • As per your suggestion, I downloaded the file WinDev1709Eval.HyperV.zip a second time and compared it with my first download. They were identical. I also compared the unpacked WinDev1709Eval.vhd file with the previous, and they were also identical. I used FC /B in windows command prompt to compare.

    The problem is that even though the filenames say WinDev1709Eval.HyperV.zip and WinDev1709Eval.vhd, the version of windows shown after booting into the vhd is "Microsoft Windows [Version 10.0.15063]" from the VER command in command prompt, and "Build 15063.rs2_release.170317-1834" on the bottom right of the desktop over the wallpaper.

    The filename doesn't match the content.

    My ISP imposes a monthly data limit on my internet connection, and this was a rather large file, and I downloaded it twice, but it seems the wrong file is being sent repeatedly, and I'm wasting my monthly data allocation.

    The size of WinDev1709Eval.HyperV.zip as shown in Windows explorer file properties is 15,006,465,646 bytes.
