Download Windows ADK: The numerous versions of Microsoft Windows ADK (Assessment and Planning Toolkit)..and where to find them!

…You get my point right?

As a core prerequisite for Microsoft’s Deployment Toolkit Windows Automated Installation Kit (WAIK) successor: Assessment and Deployment Kit (ADK), count’s numerous versions out there wandering the interwebs. As I’m always looking for the latest version available whenever I perform a Microsoft Deployment Toolkit implementation, I thought it would be nice to create and maintain a list of the most recent versions of ADK out there.

I went on a little investigation and came to the following table:

Name Installed Version URL Release Date
Windows ADK for Windows 10 v1607 10.1.14393.0 Download Sept. 2016
Windows ADK for Windows 10 v1511 10.1.10586.0 Download Oct. 2015
Windows ADK for Windows 10 RTM 10.0.26624.0 Download July. 2015
Windows ADK for Windows 10 10.0.10240.0 Download July. 2015
Windows ADK for Windows 8.1 8.100.26866 Download Sept. 2014
Windows ADK for Windows 8.1 update 8.100.26629 Apr. 2014
Windows ADK for Windows 8.1 update 8.100.26020 Oct. 2013
Windows ADK for Windows 8.1 RTM 8.100.25984 Sept. 2013
Windows ADK for Windows 8 8.59.25584 Download Dec. 2012
Windows ADK for Windows 10 v1703 10.1.15063 Download March. 2017

I will continue to expand this list as new versions come available. If you have any missing info like download links of the versions listed above. Please do not hesitate to contact me!

Cheers! Rens

    Thanks for keeping this table up to date! It’s hard trying to find what version of ADK is for what version of Windows and luckily I stumbled across your site.

    Do I need to install every version of ADK for each OS or can I use ADK 1703 for all OS. If I need to install versions Please let me Know. Thanks Rusty

      Hi Rusty,

      Just the latest will do just fine. No need to install them after another.

      Cheers! Rens

    I’m using MDOP 2015 to create a Dart 10 but installing the latest ADK is giving me the “ErrorActionPreference” error and cleaning up everything afterwards. do I need the 2015 ADK? HELP PLEASE!

      Hi Luis,
      Not sure, what happens when you install the latest ADK on a Machine where MDOP is not present? I believe to incorporate DaRT in your WinPE image you just need to paste the cab files in the support or tools folder for WinPE.

      Cheers!
