Rufus: Microsoft didn’t like it and ended up downloading Windows 11

Installing Windows 11 or any other version of this system is not complicated. Of course, there are tools that make this process easier, some with very interesting and useful extras.

Rufus is a good fit for this type of apps, but now it has suffered a strong setback. Microsoft didn’t like the way this app accessed the ISO’s of Windows 11 and other versions and ended up with this download.




Anyone who knows Rufus is well aware of the usefulness of this tool for the installation process of Windows 11 and other versions of Microsoft's system. Fully automatic, you can prepare a pen, with many options ready and chosen.

Of course it can be used for other systems, but the big question now is what it offers in the Microsoft ecosystem. All the downloads I did on Windows 11 and others were blocked and just don't work.

This question was first raised by some users, who detected the error message recently. This simply showed that it had not been possible to download the Windows 11 ISO or any other chosen version.

Some further investigation eventually discovered the cause of this error, which may not be resolved soon. Microsoft has changed access to the ISO of its systems and only internal requests can define which version to download, which limits Rufus.

The team that maintains this tool is already trying to find a solution to circumvent the limitations that Microsoft has now placed. They hope to have a new version soon that can bring it back Rufus to Windows 11 and all versions it supports.

There is still no response from Microsoft to this situation, but it is clear that everything is due to a change on the side of the software giant. So you don't want external apps to unload your system, especially one that manages to overcome other impositions that have been placed.
