Windows 11 23H2 has been launched by Microsoft, which makes it the latest Microsoft OS available at the time of writing this post. Along with the basic Windows editions, Microsoft has also made available the Enterprise Evaluation edition.
Although the actual Enterprise edition needs a valid license to function, you can try it out first with these evaluation versions that are valid for 90 days from the installation date. It can be downloaded in various languages, including English, Chinese, German, Italian, and some others.
This guide discusses how to download the Windows 11 23H2 Enterprise edition and what it includes.
What is the Windows Enterprise edition?
The Windows Enterprise edition is designed for users within the corporate environments. It includes salient features that other editions, like Professional, lack. These additional features meet the requirements of organizations for better manageability and control.
The Enterprise editions are only available through Volume Licensing (VL). This edition offers all the features available in the Professional edition, plus Direct Access, Windows To Go Creator, BranchCache, Start Screen Control, etc.
Enterprise editions are also available in the Long Term Servicing Channel (LTSC), which are kept up to date for longer times than the regular editions and a new one comes along every 2-3 years.
Requirements for Windows 11 23H2 Enterprise edition
Before deploying Windows 11 23H2 Enterprise on your PC or the computers on your network, it is important to make sure that they meet the system requirements.
Like all Windows 11 requirements, devices for Windows 11 23H2 must also meet the same minimum requirements, which include the following:
- A 64-bit system architecture.
- Minimum 2 CPU Cores are required.
- TPM 2.0 is required for installation. TPM 2.0 was mostly integrated into 8th-generation CPUs. So at least 8th Gen CPU is required.
- Only UEFI is supported. Legacy boot is not supported.
Furthermore, to get the Enterprise Evaluation ISO, you must first register yourself.
If the system requirements are met and you are prepared to register yourself, you may continue to the section below to download the Windows 11 23H2 Enterprise ISO image.

Download Windows 11 23H2 Enterprise using Media Creation Tool (MCT)
Note: At the moment, the Media Creation Tool downloads Windows 11 22H2 Build 22621.1702, instead of the latest Windows 11 23H2. Therefore, the following method will download Windows 11 22H2 Enterprise. Hopefully, this issue will be resolved soon by Microsoft.
Another way to download the Windows 11 23H2 Enterprise edition is through the Media Creation Tool. However, this method requires a tiny tweak with a simple command that converts the consumer-based MCT into one for the Enterprise edition.
Use the following steps to download it using MCT:
Press the Windows Key + R to open the Run Command box.
Type in “cmd” and press CTRL + Shift + Enter to run an elevated Command Prompt instance.
Use the CD command to change the directory to where the MCT is downloaded (as shown below):

en-US” code in the following command to any other language code that you want to download the ISO image in.
MediaCreationTool.exe /EULA Accept /Retail /MediaArch x64 /MediaLangCode en-US /MediaEdition Enterprise
The Media Creation Tool will now run.
When asked for a product key, put in a product key from the internet (this is only temporary) and click Next.

Select a location to save the ISO file and click Save.
Your download will now begin.
When the Windows 11 23H2 Enterprise ISO download completes, click Finish on the MCT wizard.
