Rufus with new Fido script allows automatic ISO download again

Rufus, one of the most popular tools for creating bootable ISOs of Windows (and other operating systems), can download Windows ISO files directly from Microsoft. A built-in Fido script makes Rufus an all-in-one app for those who need a USB drive to clean their Windows installation.rufus

Microsoft is apparently not happy with third-party apps accessing its servers, and therefore very often tries to stop them. The developers behind Rufus and Fido don't give up though and always find a way around Microsoft's countermeasures. Fido 1.39 is now available, allowing users to download Windows ISO files again.

The latest version of Fido is available on GitHub, providing a fix for the following bug:

Error: We are unable to complete your request at this time. Certain users, entities and locations are prohibited from using this service. For this reason, the use of anonymizing or location hiding technologies is generally not permitted when connecting to this service. If you think you are experiencing this problem by mistake, please try again. If the problem persists, you can contact the “Microsoft Support – Contact Us” page for assistance. See message code 715-123130.

Rufus already updated the built-in Fido script, so users won't have to do anything to restore the ability to download Windows ISO files within the app. If you are using Fido separately from Rufus, download version 1.39 from the project repository on GitHub.

You can download the new Rufus from the official site but also by Microsoft Store. The Best Technology Site in Greece
