Microsoft recently launched a new Media Creation Tool version. Users initially thought the tool allowed them to install the May 2019 Update (version 1903) on Windows 10 systems.
Many thought the tool also supported production systems that were not a part of the Windows Insider program.
This was a very exciting piece of news especially for the Windows 10 users who are not currently enrolled in the Windows Insider program.
Indeed, the tool allows users to download the MediaCreationTool1903.exe version but there’s a catch.
Notably, a Twitter user just spotted that the Media creation tool is actually downloading Windows 10 version 1809 build 17763.379 rather than Windows 10 version 1903.
The Media Creation Tool automatically starts upgrading your system once the download is complete.
?Unfortunately, currently, this MediaCreationTool1903.exe file includes links for download and installing Windows 10 Version 1809, #Redstone_5, OSBuild 17763.379.rs5_release_svc_prod1.190306-1916 with #KB4489899 March 12, 2019 ?https://t.co/32vPDkEDPv pic.twitter.com/iA0tEEXxPj

Users who were eagerly waiting for the May 2019 Update are extremely disappointed with Microsoft for offering them the wrong OS version.
Wait for an official release
We will let you know when version 1903 goes live and you can use it to install Windows 10 May 2019 Update on your computer.
Still, you should think twice before upgrading your system. Right now, Microsoft is testing the Windows 10 May 2019 Update and Windows insiders are working to report all the bugs that exist in the build.
The tech giant wants to patch those bugs before the update is released to the general public in late May. Therefore, we can’t deny the possibility that the current version might come with some major bugs.
Microsoft plans to release several cumulative updates to address issues in this build.
Once your PC is on the May 2019 Update, we will continue to release Cumulative Updates over the coming weeks that improves your experience.
You should first install the Windows 10 May 2019 Update on a virtual machine or wait for an official release next month.
Microsoft added some major changes to Windows Update ahead of May 2019 release. For example, the Windows 10 May 2019 Update separates feature updates from cumulative updates.
It seems like Microsoft is concentrating more on last-minute testing following the buggy release of October 2018 Update last year.
