What’s New in the Windows 10 ADK for 1809

The Windows Assessment and Deployment Kit (ADK) for Windows 10 1809 is a solution for evaluating computer performance, readiness and provides the tools to create and deploy custom images to new computers.

Microsoft release a new version of these tools for each Windows feature release. This year Microsoft have made a small change that IT Pros should be aware of, the Window Preinstallation Environment (PE) is now excluded from the initial source files for the Windows ADK and is now available as an addon.

To add Windows PE to your ADK installation run the separately released installer after you have completed the Windows ADK install.

The change allows Microsoft to provide post-RTM updates to the tools in the ADK.

The Windows PE files location has not changed and will be in the same location as previous ADK installs.

C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\10\Assessment and Deployment Kit\Windows Preinstallation Environment
