How do I get Win10_1511_English_x64 iso to download without win 10 crashing because it can't install MS DVD player

Cumulative update for Win 10 (KB3105213) won't install.  Tried downloading the ISO.  Download fails each time with error that MS Windows DVD player failed to install because it could not register with the firewall.  I don't have Windows DVD player installed.

Has anyone successfully installed this update?

Thank you,

From what I have read, Microsoft is using the information it gleaned installing Windows 10 the first time to determine if your hardware and drivers will support Threshold 2. They are moving slowly, so I suggest you wait until Windows 10 update presents it to you.

If you upgraded to Windows 10 in the last 30 days, the update will wait for 30 days to pass in case you need to roll back.

My machine should take Threshold 2, but Update has yet to present it.  No rush.

Thank you, John.  The update showed up on my PC and failed several times doing the installation.

After I posted, I ran Windows 10 update and Build 1511 showed up. It is updating now. No sign of NOT working at this point, but it is not done.

It may be a couple of hours, but I do expect it to be successful and I will post back.

Your machine may not be sufficiently compliant to run Windows 10 - 1511.

It took the best part of 2 hours, but my machine successfully updated to Version 1511 Build 10586.3.  

Speccy and CPU-Z were both removed as not compatible so I will have to look for new versions.

Everything else was already new in the last 90 days (since I first installed Windows 10) and all seems to be working.

So if you are not getting past "Preparing to install" then your machine may have an issue (driver) or you may have legacy software that needs updating. I would certainly look for all new drivers, chipset and BIOS from your manufacturer.
Please clarify your "Download fails each time with error that MS Windows DVD player failed to install". Are you doing a manual download?
Do it manually, it will not fail. The media creation tool has also been updated (will deliver the newest Version):

Thank you for your reply.  This was a download of the November update (KB3105213) iso.

Right now I am using media creation tool to download what I hope is the iso to do the update.

See how it goes. Build 10586.3 (1511) is working fine on my ThinkPad X230. Make sure you have all your drivers up to date and little or no legacy software.

I was able to download the update iso image using my other Win 10 64 pro PC (a $100 off-lease hp 6500 that came with Win 7 pro and upgraded to Win 10 w/o problems.  I burned the iso and put it in problem PC.  I tried the update route and the pc crashed three times with the "memory management" error trying to do the update.  I gave up tried repair and let things roll back to the original version 10.0 (build 10240).  The product id is correct, and nothing is crashing with only ms edge in use.  Unless I have to deal with an immediate issue with my website and need to load webeasy professional, I am going to leave things be without adding back any software or drivers to see what happens.  I just have MS Edge running.

Does rolling back Windows trash all the drivers that came with the motherboard?  Everything works so it may not matter.
No, a rollback trashes nothing.

Thank you, since the rollback, system has been very stable and has not crashed as before.  This would appear to exonerate the drivers for the motherboard, etc., from causing the  crashes.

Only program I have added is Core Temp.  Only other application in use is MS Edge.  I am going to give it a few more days before adding anything else.
