Windows 8 - ADK - Unattend.chm - Direct Link

Here it is so you don't have to install netfx4 or download the 2.5GB ADK for a single file. Only 17MB.


Unpack the cab and rename this file 'fil4053e4e2f4605477ef328c27bce92c39' to Unattend.chm - Size = 2,662,271 bytes

This snip will handle the downloading and renaming. The file will be in your C:\Temp folder.

$colorscheme = (Get-Host).PrivateData
$colorscheme.ProgressBackgroundColor = "black"
$colorscheme.ProgressForegroundColor = "red"

Import-Module BitsTransfer

$SRC = "http://download.microsoft.com/download/9/9/F/99F5E440-5EB5-4952-9935-B99662C3DF70/adk/Installers/56e5d88e2c299be31ce4fc4a604cede4.cab"
$DEST = "C:\Temp\56e5d88e2c299be31ce4fc4a604cede4.cab"
$FILE = "C:\Temp\fil4053e4e2f4605477ef328c27bce92c39"
$CHM = "C:\Temp\Unattend.chm"

Start-BitsTransfer $SRC $DEST -Description "Go grab a beer." -DisplayName "Downloading Unattend.chm"
expand $DEST -f:fil4053e4e2f4605477ef328c27bce92c39 c:\Temp\
Rename-Item -path $FILE -newname $CHM

Remove-Item $DEST

I'm guessing the other CHM's are in the same cab in case anyone is wondering.


Thanks to JFX for showing me how this was possible.
