Can system without Anniversary Update go right to Creators Update?

My wife's computer was one that didn't handle the Anniversary update too well, so I had rolled it back. Since then it's never been updated. Can I go right to the Creators Update, or do I have to do the Anniversary Update first?

So, that computer is running Win 10 version 1511 ?

If yes, the anser to your question is : Yes. You can.

Use the Media Creation Tool (MCT)

***MCT has been updated. It includes the Creators Update and its iso file.***

Click the Download Tool Now button and Run it.
Select Create installation media for another PC.
That will start download the ISO file.
When download is completed, Right click at the iso file > click Mount > click Setup ( or Setup.exe).
Installation will begin.
It will allow you to keep your files, settings and apps.
Activation is automatic when installation is successfully completed.
