The Windows ADK contains a collection of professional tools for optimizing Windows installations and optimizing performance.

The Windows Assessment and Deployment Kit (Windows ADK) 1.0 is actually intended for the provision of prepared Windows installations, i.e. for PC manufacturers who deliver their computers with Windows preinstalled. It includes various tools for Windows deployment and Windows performance assessment.

The deployment tools are used to adapt, optimize and automate Windows installations. With the help of the Windows ADK, work and time should be saved if, for example, companies want to install the operating system for several computers. A tool for migrating the data of existing Windows installations (USMT) and a test tool that tests the compatibility of the programs used with the new system (ACT) are examples of the provisioning tools in the Windows ADK.

The program suite's assessment tools are designed to test performance, reliability, and functionality. This is to ensure that unnecessary problems are avoided and that the interaction between hardware and software works as desired. You can also use the assessment tools to ensure that the computer meets the quality requirements.

These tools are included in the Windows Assessment and Deployment Kit:

  • Application Compatibility Toolkit (ACT)

  • Deployment tools

  • User State Migration Tool (USMT)

  • Volume Activation Management Tool (VAMT)

  • Windows Performance Toolkit (WPT)

  • Windows assessment toolkit

  • Windows Assessment Services

  • Windows Preinstallation Environment (Windows PE)

You specify which of these tools you want to install during the installation of the Windows ADK.
