Have added command line support for range downloads.


GWT -range:8808448-9236127 -out:"X:\bootmgr" -title:"Download Win8.1 Bootmgr" -link:/download/B/9/9/B999286E-0A47-406D-8B3D-5B5AD7373A4A/9600.16384.WINBLUE_RTM.130821-1623_X86FRE_ENTERPRISE_EVAL_EN-US-IRM_CENA_X86FREE_EN-US_DV5.ISO

GetWaikTools.zip

The exe file sizes  from this link are much smaller than the ones downloaded using the link on page 1. Are these the same versions compiled differently?

64bit versions will be larger than 32bit versions. For example, the 32bit Imagex.exe from ADK 8.1 is 590KB and the 64bit version is 694KB.

But also note that the posts on Page 1 are from 5 years ago...

I rewrote the tool a few times, File size was usually reduced a lot.

But now there is a new version 17.10 without upx wich bigger again.

Can this tool be used to get only the Application Compatibility Toolkit (ACT)) from the ADK?

I have a program (Lenovo Power Manager) that I want to install but it is blocked for W10, I understand it can be unblocked

with ACT, but I don't really want to install the ADK just to get this component. What would I need to enter using

GWT -range

Thanks.. I'm not sure what to do with the cab files. Will the msi know what to do with them?

I could not get the adksetup.exe to work for me. I only selected  Application Compatibility Tools and the download would always fail. I finally figured out that I needed  the 1607 version (10.1.14393 ) of the adksetup.exe for it to work.

Edit: I ran the msi from your link and that was enough for what I needed to do. I used the Compatability Adminstrator from the installed toolkit to unblock the Power Manager setup.exe so I could see if the app still works on W10 and it does.:cool:

It are just the offset inside the ISO like jaclaz explained.

I've made tool for that:

ISO2Offset.7z

I wanted to test this using en_Win10_1709_multi_dec_x86_dvd_100406359.iso to see what the offset was for the install.wim, but nothing gets listed just specifying install.wim. If I leave the [file] blank, I get the following:

	[README.TXT]
Range=51200-51334
	[[BOOT]\1-Boot-NoEmul.img]
Range=1064960-1069055
	[[BOOT]\2-Boot-NoEmul.img]
Range=1069056-1069567 

How does one specify the [file] in the iso to get it's range, or is iso2offset only for the ADK?

I don't have the ADK downloaded so I can't get a list of any offsets from that.

try

ISO2Offset "%ISOFILE%" -UDF sources\install.wim

or

ISO2Offset "%ISOFILE%" -UDF *.wim

Thank you sir. I'm embarrassed for not trying that switch. :blushing:  I was assuming it was the default and did not think to try. Sorry....

Can the %ISOFILE% be a download link to an iso file or must the iso already be downloaded to get the ranges?

Yes you have to download the ISO first, there currently no URL support.

Hi JFX,

Can you please confirm whether Get WAIK Tools is redistributable? I am thinking of including it in a PEBakery / WinBuilder project if it is - and with your consent.

Also, can you (or someone) please advise on how best to obtain the offsets for a file contained in a .cab - required for the GWT -range command?

This relates to a topic discussion on reboot.pro -
http://reboot.pro/topic/21668-minimal-fileset-for-installing-an-adk-optional-component/

And more specifically this post -
http://reboot.pro/topic/21668-minimal-fileset-for-installing-an-adk-optional-component/?p=205560

Regards,

Misty

Hi misty,

yes Get WAIK Tools is redistributable, feel free to use it as you like.

The range command of GWT is actually only thought for ISO (or other uncompressed) files.
Extracting files from inside a cabinet, without loading the complete file, is much more difficult.

From the topics, I take it you are looking for the 2 big cab file that hold all the winpe component packages?
If so, I don't think it's possible to reduce the download much.

They are packed with MSZip compression, with many files in separate blocks.

Thanks for the information. A lot of the stuff I need is in the 2 big cab files that you mentioned. Any suggestions regarding alternatives? I looked briefly at re7zip (http://reboot.pro/files/download/224-re7zip/), however the java dependencies make this a no go for my needs.

BTW, Get WAIK Tools is a(nother) fantastic application. Very well done to you and everyone else involved. :worship:

Hmm, never tried re7zip, but I doubt It will be a fast and small download for these cab files.
Anyone willing to test it, downloading files from the cab files?

http://download.microsoft.com/download/3/8/B/38BBCA6A-ADC9-4245-BCD8-DAA136F63C8B/adk/Installers/a32918368eba6a062aaaaf73e3618131.cab

Anyway, it shouldn't be to hard writing such a tool as a native program.

Just installed java and will test properly later. I've Just used the following command to list the contents of one of the .cabs you linked to (redirecting to a text file as the first attempt had too many lines to display in my command prompt) -
 

java -jar re7zip.jar -t=cab -a=http://download.microsoft.com/download/3/8/B/38BBCA6A-ADC9-4245-BCD8-DAA136F63C8B/adk/Installers/a32918368eba6a062aaaaf73e3618131.cab -l > list.txt

Output from running the above command (which completed very quickly) -
