Build innovative and differentiated devices with Windows 10. Windows 10 runs on a broad set of devices—from
desktops, notebooks, phones, and Internet of Things (IoT) devices. The operating system's common core works
across platforms with 80-inch screens, 4-inch screens, or devices with no screens at all.
You can create devices to use touch/pen, mouse/keyboard, controller/gesture—or you can build them to switch
between input types.

1/18/2019 • 2 minutes to read

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

Using the GUI


1. On a PC that has Internet access, see Download and install the Windows ADK.
2. Click one of the links to download the ADK version you desire, and Save adksetup.exe to a location on your
computer.
3. Run ADKSetup.exe. After a few seconds, the Specify Location screen appears.

IMPORTANT
The success of this step requires that you run ADKSetup.exe on a computer with an Internet connection and without
a copy of Windows ADK installed. If you have Windows ADK installed and do not wish to uninstall it, consider
following the instructions in the "Using the command line" section below instead.

4. In the Specify Location screen, choose the second option that reads: "Download the Windows Assessment and
Deployment Toolkit for installation on a separate computer". (The exact wording might differ, depending on the
version of ADK.)
5. Follow the on-screen instruction to finish downloading Windows ADK.
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 target 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.

Using the command line


If you have a scenario where you need to silently install the Windows ADK, you can install using the command line.
1. On a PC that has Internet access, see Download and install the Windows ADK.
2. Click one of the links to download the ADK version you desire, and Save adksetup.exe to a location on your
computer.
3. Open a Command Prompt window as administrator.
4. Change to the directory that stores the Adksetup.exe file:

cd %userprofile%\downloads

5. Run adksetup.exe. Use /quiet to run the installer silently. Use /layout to specify where the offline install files
will be copied to.

adksetup /quiet /layout c:\temp\ADKoffline


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 offline computer can access.
7. On the offline computer, open a Command Prompt window as an administrator.
8. Change to the directory that contains adksetup.exe.
9. Run adksetup.exe. Use /quiet for a silent installation, /installpath to specify where to install the ADK, and
/features to specify features. For example, install Deployment Tools to c:\ADK silently:

adksetup.exe /quiet /installpath c:\ADK /features OptionId.DeploymentTools

Microsoft Visual Studio 2017


Install Microsoft Visual Studio 2017
Start by downloading Visual Studio 2017 and Microsoft Visual Studio Tools for Windows 10. Used together,
Microsoft Visual Studio, Visual Studio Tools for Windows 10, standalone Windows Software Development Kit
(SDK) for Windows 10, and Windows Driver Kit (WDK) 10 provide an integrated development environment for
creating efficient, high-quality drivers for devices running Windows 10.

Standalone Windows SDK for Windows 10


Install the Standalone Windows SDK for Windows 10
Windows SDK for Windows 10 contains headers, libraries, and tools you can use when you create apps that run
on Windows operating systems. You can use the Windows SDK for Windows 10, along with your chosen
development environment, to write apps for Windows 10 for desktop editions and Windows 10 Mobile.

WDK 10
Install the Windows Driver Kit (WDK) 10
Download Universal Windows driver samples
WDK 10 contains the tools to build, test, debug, and deploy drivers for Windows 10. WDK 10 unifies support for
mobile and desktop devices, Universal Windows drivers, and, with Visual Studio, provides a unified test experience
with reliable deployment and debug provisioning that includes WinDbg. You can run many basic certification tests
in the integrated environment. The WDK 10 includes templates for several technologies and driver models,
including Windows Driver Frameworks (WDF ), Universal Serial Bus (USB ), print, networking, and file system
filters. WDK 10 also supports Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 8.1 driver development.
For more information about driver development for Windows 10, see What's new in Universal Windows driver
development and What's new in kits and tools.

Enterprise WDK (EWDK)


The Enterprise WDK (EWDK) is a kit that large organizations can use as an alternative to downloading and
installing the SDK and WDK individually on each computer. The EWDK has a command-line build environment
that is based on files and is not computer-dependent, so after the environment file structure has been created, it
can be distributed for direct use, such as through version control software or by zipping the contents and
unzipping on other computers. It contains the necessary elements to build Windows Driver Model (WDM ) drivers,
WDF drivers, and classic Windows test applications.

Windows symbols
Symbol files make it easier to debug your code. The easiest way to get Windows symbols is to use the Microsoft
Symbol Server. If you prefer to download the entire set of symbols for a particular version of Windows, download
a symbol package.
