Windows SDK 8 Full Install

14 December 2012 22:02

Web installations have there place. Often though you may need to distribute an MSI/exe over several PCs. Annoyingly, from Microsoft, Windows SDK 8 is only available as a web installer. Thankfully sdksetup.exe can be run from the command line and provides an option to download features of Windows SDK 8 to copy and install on other computers.

From the command line run:

sdksetup.exe /layout [path to download Windows SDK 8]

This option only downloads the installation features and does not install to the local computer. If the path is not specified, Windows SDK 8 defaults the path to C:\Users\[User Name]\Downloads\Windows Kits\8.0\StandaloneSDK.
