Cannot Complete Windows ADK install files download RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have been trying for days now to complete the install for the Windows Assessment and Deployment Kit (ADK) for Windows 8.1 on my SCCM Server (SCCM is not installed yet).

    The Server is running Server 2012R2, patched to the latest updates, connected to the Internet.

    The application seems to stall on 4 particular .cab files that do not seem to be available from Microsoft Downloads. They are:


    Here is a sample download path:

    I have managed to manually download all the other files directly from MS, but these 4 files will not download. Any ideas or suggestions?

    I have downloaded the latest adk installers (both for Windows 8.1, and the standard ADK installer) but neither of those will complete the install.

    There is ample disk space for the 4+GB of data required (100GB+). My firewall is not blocking any downloads. I am running the installer in elevated Administrator mode.

    None of this makes any sense. Very frustrated, because I need to get the ADK installed so I can complete the SCCM install! I am also trying to download the install files on my local workstation and that fails as well!
