Last week, we reported that the Update Assistant for Windows 10 Creators Update leaked online, suggesting that the RTM build for the Windows 10 Creators Update will be Windows 10 build 15063.
The Update Assistant tool will allow users who are running an older version of Windows 10 to download and upgrade their OS to Windows 10 build 15063.
The importance of build 15063 could be significant as this release could be the full Creators Update. In other words, it seems likely this is the release to manufacturing (RTM) version of the feature update. ( See a full changelog of Windows 10 build 15063 at the end)
There is certainly plenty of evidence to suggest that. It is also known as Version 1703 of the Windows 10 platform and has been released across the Fast ring on mobile and PC, the Slow ring for PC, and to the Xbox Insider Program. Last week the SDK and Mobile Emulator for Windows 10 build 15063 leaked online.
Of course, this is all piecing the puzzle together as Microsoft has yet to confirm if this is the final Windows 10 Creators Build.
It´s worth noting the version of the Update Assistant for the Creators Update is different to the one released for the Anniversary Update last year. You cannot just run the previous edition of the Assistant on a PC running the Anniversary Update or earlier Windows 10 versions to get the Windows 10 Creators Update.
For users who prefer upgrading from an ISO, Microsoft has also released the official Windows 10 build 15063 ISO files.

Windows 10 build 15063
As we reported when its launched on the Windows Insider Program, build 15063 is light on new features. This has been the case for Creators Update releases for weeks as Microsoft tidies up the platform ahead of launch.
Instead, the company has focused on making the following changes across PC and Mobile.
- “We fixed a reliability issue from Build 15061 resulting in Microsoft Edge hanging and becoming completely unresponsive.
- We fixed an issue for Insiders where the localized files and registry keys associated with any additional language packs on the system would not be installed after enabling .NET Framework 3.5.”
- “We fixed the bug causing a number of inbox apps to fail to launch (such as Store) and also preventing any app updates from the Store from working. Thank you all for sending us feedback around this.
- We fixed the bug causing background tasks to not run in the background like they should such as OneDrive's camera roll sync feature. Background tasks should be working again as expected and your camera roll will sync to OneDrive again.
- We fixed the issue where in some cases you may lose your call, text, and email history may be lost if your device experiences an unexpected reboot.
- Speech Packs should download and install normally.
- We fixed an issue for Insiders with certain cars resulting in connection failures after pairing Bluetooth.
- We fixed an issue where replacing the default APN for LTE on the phone wouldn't work.”
