Updated: April 2, 2014

To install the Windows ADK on a computer that does not have Internet access, you first download the installer files. Next, you copy the installer files to the offline computer. Then you can run ADKSetup.exe using either the GUI or the command line.

  1. On a computer that has Internet access, run Windows ADK Setup from this Microsoft website.

  2. Select Download the Assessment and Deployment Kit for installation on a separate computer.

  3. In the Download Path box, specify the location where you want to download the files, and then click Next.

  4. Select whether you want to participate in the Customer Experience Improvement Program (CEIP), and then click Download.

  5. After the download is finished, click Close.

  6. Copy the downloaded files to a location that the offline computer can access.

    For example, copy the files to removable media or to a file server that the computer can access.

  7. On the offline computer, change directory to the location of the copied files.

  8. Run ADKSetup.exe, and then select the Windows ADK features that you want to install.

  1. On the computer that has Internet access, save a copy of the Adksetup.exe file on the computer.

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

  3. Change directory to the directory that stores the Adksetup.exe file.

    For example, if you copied the file to the Downloads directory for your user account:

    cd %userprofile%\downloads
    
  4. Run the following command, where <path> is the location where you want to download the files:

    adksetup /quiet /layout <path>
    
  5. Copy the downloaded files to a location that the offline computer can access.

    For example, copy the files to removable media or to a file server that the offline computer can access.

  6. On the offline computer, open a Command Prompt window as an administrator.

  7. Change directory to the directory that contains the downloaded copy of Adksetup.exe.

  8. Run the following command:

    adksetup /quiet /installpath <path> /features <featureID1><featureID2>
    

    For <path>, specify the location where you want to install the Windows ADK features.

    To see a list of possible <featureID> values, run the adksetup /list command. To install all of the Windows ADK features, use the /features + option.
