After using Rebuild, twice, I'm still getting the same message.
Rebuild updated Reflect version ok, from 6 to 7, but not the 'Windows PE' files. Should be release 1607, from what I read elsewhere, but, whatever the case, Rebuild isn't applying the "Update Found".



Is there something else I should be doing?
Any help much appreciated.

And, fyi..

Rescue Media consists of two main components: the WinPE environment that comes from Microsoft, and the Reflect files that get added to it.  The version number in that prompt is for Reflect, so if you click Continue and then click Next to "rebuild" your Rescue Media, that process would only inject the latest version of Reflect into your Rescue Media.  However, you're certainly correct that Reflect should also be prompting you to update the WinPE environment files to WinPE 10 1607, since support for that release was added long ago.  If you haven't already, try running that rebuild operation to update the Reflect files, then close the wizard, reopen it, click "Change PE Version" just to re-select WinPE 10, and continue on to that final step to see if Reflect now prompts you to update the WinPE component files.  Maybe it doesn't update both the Reflect files and WinPE files at the same time?

If even that doesn't work, I just confirmed that going to "C:\ProgramData\Macrium\Reflect\Windows Kits" and deleting the "10" folder (which contains the WinPE 10 files from Microsoft) causes the WinPE update prompt to appear as shown below.  I had to wait a few seconds after reaching the final step of the wizard, but it did appear on its own, and clicking Continue will allow you to download them.

Thank you for the speedy reply.
1. The version number in the prompt is the same as the version already in use, yet I'm still being notified of "Update Found". And, fwiw, I did try a reinstall of the program - actually a Repair operation, if memory serves.
2. Still no prompt to update the WinPE component files, after re-selecting WinPE 10.
3. Deleted the C:\ProgramData\Macrium\Reflect\Windows Kits\10 ok. The prompt then on my machine appears so

Download took a little while, but appears to have successfully updated the updated the WinPE component files. Thank you!

5. But, I'm still getting this

Oh wow!  Sorry, I completely missed in your original screenshot that you were being prompted to "update" to the same Reflect version that your cached files were already using.  I've never seen that before and I have no idea what may be causing it, but again as a workaround, you can try deleting the contents of the "C:\boot\macrium\WA10KFiles\media" folder, which is where Reflect stores the actual Rescue Media build it generates.  The files in that folder are also used for the boot menu recovery option if you have that enabled.  That will certainly force a Rescue Media rebuild operation, though you will NOT have to redownload the WinPE 10 files, since those are cached under that ProgramData folder I mentioned earlier.  If you still see this behavior despite not seeing any error messages during the actual rebuild operation, I'm not sure what's going on, but in that case hopefully you'll get a response from Macrium or another forum member here shortly.

Yeah, I actually missed that point at first. Thought it was trying to update the WinPe part, because it says 'Windows PE' in the dialogue.

Uurrggh, looks like the media creation process just replaces contents of C:\boot\macrium\WA10KFiles\media.
I did delete it, and it magically reappears.

And, after going through the whole process as far as burning ISO, I get the same message again.

Thanks for posting.

This is a bug in the Free Edition of Macrium Reflect that will be fixed in the next update. Please ignore the update message box. 

Kind Regards

Well the media creation process is supposed to replace the contents of the Media folder, so that’s expected. I just thought that purging it before doing that again might fix whatever was triggering that false update dialog, but apparently it is in fact a bug.

Oh, right. Thanks. What about the failure to update the WinPE version properly?
Perhaps I should've mentioned I am using the Free Edition, at the outset.

My mistake. I don't know what I thought would happen, maybe some different message box... Thank you very much for your help with this. At least the WinPE component is up to date now, where it wasn't before. Now I need to go and figure out what Bitlocker is all about, and if and how to use it.

Cheers, people.

You’re very welcome! That’s very strange that Reflect didn’t prompt you to update to 1607, since I definitely remember it doing that when 1607 support was added, and that was more than a year ago. And you had the original 1507 release, not even the intermediate 1511 files. Maybe not prompting for that update is related to the same bug that caused the constant prompts about the Reflect files?

Enjoy getting to know BitLocker, and feel free to PM me if you have any questions about it. I’ve delved into it reasonably extensively over the past few years and would be happy to help.
