Update the Windows ADK

Updated: April 2, 2014

Keep your Windows ADK installation up to date with the latest features and fixes.

You can manage the installation, repair, and removal of Windows ADK features by using the Programs and Features section in Control Panel.

You can also remove or repair the Windows ADK features from the command line. For more information, see ADKSetup Command Line Syntax.

  1. Open Programs and Features section in Control Panel. Click Assessment and Deployment Kit and then click Change.

  2. In the Maintain your Assessment and Deployment Kit features window, select an option:

    • Change

      This option allows you to add or remove specific Windows ADK features.

    • Repair

      This option reinstalls all of the Windows ADK features that are currently installed on the computer.

    • Uninstall

      This option removes all of the Windows ADK features.

    • Change Customer Experience Improvement Program Settings.

      This option changes the CEIP settings that are applied to all of the Windows kits installed to the computer.

  3. Follow the steps in the Windows ADK to complete your selected option.

  1. Open a Command Prompt window by right-clicking and then selecting Run as administrator.

  2. Change directory to the directory that contains the Adksetup.exe file.

  3. Run the following command, where <featureID1>, <featureID2>, and so on are the identifiers for the features that you want to remove:

    adksetup /quiet /uninstall /features <featureID1><featureID2>
    

    You can run the adksetup /list command to show possible <featureID> values. Your installation may not have all of the features listed.

    To remove all of the Windows ADK features that are installed, omit the /features option.

    For additional command line options used to manage the Windows ADK, see ADKSetup Command Line Syntax.

  1. On a computer that has Internet access, run the latest version of ADK Setup from this Microsoft website.

    WarningWarning
    The Windows ADK does not automatically download updated features. You must run the latest version of ADKSetup.exe from the Microsoft website to determine if there are any updates.

  2. If there are updates, you will be prompted to install the latest versions of those features.

  3. To install updates to an offline computer, you must download ADKSetup.exe as well as the updated features. Then, you must copy those features and ADKSetup.exe to the offline computer. Run ADKSetup.exe and install the updated feature to the offline computer.

    1. On a computer that has Internet access, run the latest version of ADK Setup from this Microsoft website.

    2. In the Specify Location page, choose a location to download the ADK installer and the selected features.

    3. Copy the ADK files to the offline computer.

    4. Run ADKSetup.exe to install updated features.
