Hello Kare,

These option will download the files required by Gena's BootDI and WimBoot script.

I could add them, but is there any use of them?

Only real changes are for the Wimboot feature, and so it requires 8.1 Update Host OS, that has these files already.

You've rewritten it, great  :thumbsup:
I have to revise some folder names on my side for SE, probably next week.

I still use Seven, it may be a bonus for those who use 8.1, not sure!
For when you have time, the help would be nice for switches -devcon -xpramboot, -xpwimboot -7z:{pathto7z.exe} to know they're there.

The Help is available using the -? switch. But yes, I should add a ReadMe.txt.

It seems the latest 7z alpha doesn't work anymore with the Vista Waik WIM  :sad:
But I've already a new idea for that  :grin:

Sorry, I believe that I tested with -h and -help and by forgetting -? or /?
It's all good  :thumbsup:
Can you look at the switches -win7dism -win8dism and -win8.1dism!

I had not used 7-Zip 9.34 alpha before, great that you have already an idea  :great:  let me know.
With 9.34 alpha we no longer have the message "Some files have incorrect reference count" when opening Win8 (10TP) Install.wim  :thumbsup:
And it is maybe faster than imagex /Apply for the extracted Wim Folders.

Thanks for the report.

It was my evil habit to use capital letters and than make case-sensitive comparing.

Okay I uploaded a new version, that no longer uses 7z.
It now uses wimgapi of windows 7, with my special anti-admin patch  :lol:

Great, thanks for that. I'll have to add the option to download the files automatically in the scripts.

Thanks,
Galapo.

Also there now a -windiff switch to download the good old WinDiff Compare tool from Win7 SDK.

I just tested it with all the switches:
-vista -win7 -win8 -win8.1 -win7dism -win8dism -win8.1dism -devcon -xpramboot -xpwimboot -windiff -silent -ontop -folder:E:\Temp\GWK
All the files have been downloaded, unpacked in less than a minute. All seems fine with an even smaller exe and windiff in addition :thumbsup:  :thumbsup:
Continues to reduce this essential tools :lol:

Bored, ehh? Hmm, I can't even think of a new WinNTSetup feature request right now, it's almost too damn perfect now!!  :lol:

Thanks for the new WinNTSetup 3.7.5, and this new GWT. Really amazing tools, both of them!  :thumbsup:

Hi JFX, have you seen this?
https://www.microsoft.com/en-US/download/details.aspx?id=45522

Please let us know what you think of it, or what's REALLY new in this. Thanks!

Windows Assessment and Deployment Kit (Windows ADK) for Windows 10 Technical Preview

Code: [Select]
Version:1.0 File Name:adk\ADK.chm

adk\adksetup.exe Date Published:1/28/2015 File Size:9.5 MB

1.5 MB The Windows ADK enables two key scenarios: Windows deployment and
Windows assessment. Windows Deployment is for OEMs and IT professionals
who customize and automate the large-scale installation of Windows on a
factory floor or across an organization. The Windows ADK supports this
work with the deployment tools that were previously released as part of
the OEM Preinstallation Kit (OPK) and the Windows Automated Installation
Kit (AIK) including Windows Preinstallation Environment, Deployment
Imaging, Servicing and Management, and Windows System Image Manager.

IT Professionals can use the tools in the Windows ADK to facilitate
deployment of a new version of Windows. The Application Compatibility
Toolkit (ACT) inventories applications used in your organization and
identifies potential applications compatibility issues. With the User
State Migration Tool (USMT), IT Professionals can migrate user data from
existing Windows installations. Volume Activation Management Tool (VAMT)
enables IT professionals to deploy Windows installations in their
organization and manage the activation status of their PCs.

Assessments are for OEMs, IHVs, enthusiasts, and IT professionals who
measure the operational characteristics of a computer, including its
performance, reliability, and functionality. Windows assessments are
tools that help you make these measurements, diagnose problems, and
determine how to make improvements. Windows assessments can help reduce
support costs by identifying potential issues as you create your
hardware and software experiences. By using these tools, you can help
ensure that the hardware and software that you develop are responsive
and high-quality.

The tools available in the Windows ADK include:

 Application Compatibility Toolkit (ACT) The Application Compatibility
Toolkit (ACT) helps IT Professionals understand potential application
compatibility issues by identifying which applications are or are not
compatible with the new versions of the Windows operating system. ACT
helps to lower costs for application compatibility evaluation by
providing an accurate inventory of the applications in your
organization. ACT helps you to deploy Windows more quickly by helping to
prioritize, test, and detect compatibility issues with your apps. By
using ACT, you can become involved in the ACT Community and share your
risk assessment with other ACT users. You can also test your web
applications and web sites for compatibility with new releases of
Internet Explorer. For more information, see Application Compatibility
Toolkit.

 Deployment Tools Deployment tools help you customize, manage, and
deploy Windows images. Deployment tools can be used to automate Windows
deployments, removing the need for user interaction during Windows
setup. Deployment tools include Deployment Imaging Servicing and
Management (DISM) command line tool, DISM PowerShell cmdlets, DISM API,
Windows System Image Manager (Windows SIM), and OSCDIMG. For more
information, see Deployment Tools.

 Windows Imaging and Configuration Designer (Windows ICD) (New for
Windows 10 Technical Preview) The Windows Imaging and Configuration
Designer (Windows ICD) is an easy to use tool that lets you create a
provisioning package that you can use to customize Windows devices
without re-imaging, or build a customized Windows image for individual
markets, regions, and mobile networks. Windows ICD is primarily designed
for use by OEMs and ODMs, system integrators, and IT professionals.

 User State Migration Tool (USMT) USMT is a scriptable command line
tool that IT Professionals can use to migrate user data from a previous
Windows installation to a new Windows installation. By using USMT, you
can create a customized migration framework that copies the user data
you select and excludes any data that does not need to be migrated. USMT
includes ScanState, Loadstate, and USMTUtils command line tools. For
more information, see User State Migration Tool.

 Volume Activation Management Tool (VAMT) VAMT helps IT professionals
automate and centrally manage the activation of Windows, Windows Server,
Windows ThinPC, Windows POSReady 7, select add-on product keys, and
Office for computers in their organization. VAMT can manage volume
activation using retail keys (or single activation keys), multiple
activation keys (MAKs), or Windows Key Management Service (KMS) keys.
For more information, see Volume Activation Management Tool.

 Windows Performance Toolkit (WPT) Windows Performance Toolkit includes
tools to record system events and analyze performance data in a
graphical user interface. WPT includes Windows Performance Recorder,
Windows Performance Analyzer, and Xperf. For more information, see
Windows Performance Toolkit.

 Windows Assessment Toolkit Windows Assessment Toolkit is used to run
assessments on a single computer. Assessments are tasks that simulate
user activity and examine the state of the computer. Assessments produce
metrics for various aspects of the system, and provide recommendations
for making improvements. For more information, see Windows Assessment
Toolkit.

 Windows Assessment Services Windows Assessment Services is used to
remotely manage settings, computers, images, and assessments in a lab
environment where Windows Assessment Services is installed. This
application can run on any computer with access to the server that is
running Windows Assessment Services. For more information, see Windows
Assessment Services.

 Windows Preinstallation Environment (Windows PE) Windows PE is a
minimal operating system designed to prepare a computer for installation
and servicing of Windows. For more information, see Windows PE Technical
Reference.

Well what can I say to the Win10 ADK? Boring, is there anything new?

Ah, yeah, let's say we have a new GWT 2.1 available.  :lol:

Well, I can't really tell if there's anything really new.
That's why I'm asking an expert: YOU!

I did download the full ADK, just to see if I could get anything from it. To my own surprise, I managed to create a PE. I booted it and saw it was build 9933! (So it's newer than the 9926 Technical Preview build from last week).
I also started the "Imaging and Configuration Designer", it looked kinda cool with all these settings, though I must admit I'd rather edit these settings manually in an XML file or something. Are there any new settings that you're aware of?

Hmm, interesting the news that abbodi1406 tells.

But i guess these new features will require a win10 source and that's a no go for me.
