Sometimes we stuck in a very weird situation where we have Windows ISO file that we want to install but we don’t know its version and other information. Having various Windows ISO files with weird names may cause this issue.

So how to determine what’s the version of your Windows ISO file? After Googling for hours today, I came across a solution that will help you collect all the information regarding your Windows ISO file using command prompt (CMD).

Check Version and Other Information of Windows ISO File

Let’s see how to do it:

  1. First of all mount your Windows ISO file whose version you want to know.
  2. Now run the command prompt as an administrator.
  3. Copy and paste the following command into it:
    dism /Get-WimInfo /WimFile:H:\sources\install.wim /index:1
    dism /Get-WimInfo /WimFile:H:\sources\install.esd /index:1

NOTE: ‘H’ is the drive letter of the mounted ISO so change it according to your computer.

Below is an example of how it will work:
