Windows: Offline installation of Windows Assessment and Deployment Kit ADK

Really short post:-)

To get a offline installation of Windows Assessment and Deployment Kit (formerly known as WAIK) download the Websetup ADKSetup.exe and start it – Windows .NET 4 is requiered. If not installed ADKSetup starts the installation – at the first screen you can set the location. When you specify a download path the complete ADK is stored this folder.

Importent: Start adksetup with Administrator permissions, otherwise the option “Download the Assentment…” is invisible.

Windows ADK Setup

Share the folder and execute ADKsetup.exe from this location.

    • Cause: The folder c:\windows\system32\catroot2 is empty or/and some errors are logged in file C:\Windows\System32\catroot2\dberr.txt:
