Recommended Posts

This is a guide to install charmap without having to install desktop experience (so no extra bulk).

1) Go to the winsxs directory (/windows/winsxs)

2) search for charmap.

3)Copy the content of microsoft-windows-charmap into system32 and the contents of microsoft-windows-charmap.resources into system32/en-US.

4) search for getuname

5)Copy the content of microsoft-windows-getuname into system32 and the contents of microsoft-windows-getuname.resources into system32/en-US.

6) search for linkinfo.

7)Copy the content of microsoft-windows-linkinfo into system32.

8) Now you can run charmap.

Please note when you search for files you will might find both x86 and amd64 versions, you the same version as your os (server 64 bit use amd 64 and server x86 use the x86 files.)
