Under the latest application release (v8.1.7280), Rescue Media is supposed to be using v2004 when being created (Release Notes).  When I do this, both the Rescue Media BUILDER and the Rescue Media itself say they're still running v1709 (old WIM version).

How can I make the switch to v2004... or tell what WIM is really being used in case the info it's giving me is wrong?  Any help, greatly appreciated...

Hi Froggie,

No, this isn't a deliberate requirement for the v2004 update. I think what happened is that the Rescue Media Builder detected that you'd already built 8.1.7280 rescue media, and concluded that it didn't need to do a full rebuild, it could save time by just reusing the existing wim file - and because it skipped rebuilding the wim file, it skipped checking what versions of the base wim were available for download. 

If you hadn't deleted the wim file from C:\boot\macrium\WA10KFiles, then the next update to Reflect would have prompted the Rescue Media Builder to do a full rebuild (because the version number would have changed), and so you'd have seen the "Optional Update To Windows PE 10" popup then instead.

(For future reference - if you open the Rescue Media Builder then hold down the Ctrl key, it adds a dropdown menu to the Build button, with an option to "Force WIM Rebuild" if Reflect's planning to just use the existing wim file, or to "Skip WIM Rebuild" if not. Just thought I'd mention this, since it might be more convenient than deleting the folder manually.)

Kind Regards
