…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!

Check Adobe Flash version Internet Explorer (Active-X) on Server 2012/2016 and Windows 8.1/10

Hi there,

Just a very short post, because sometimes you’re search queries on Google don’t match the result you are looking for. I was looking for a way to detect which version of Adobe Flash is native installed on clients Windows Server (which happens to be Server 2012R2) and what it’s current patch level would be.

If you click this link (it point’s to Adobe’s website) and click on the button: “Check Now”, it will give you a result of which version of Adobe Flash is installed for Internet Explorer

After hitting “Check now” you will see the following result:

If you want to know which other versions of Adobe Flash player are installed for example for Google’s Chrome (PPAPI)  and Mozilla’s Firefox (NPAPI), then type in your start screen: appwiz.cpl which will bring you directly to the installed programs menu of the control panel.

Cheers! Rens
