Installing Extra Administrative Commands

The Windows 2000 distribution CD includes several additional groups of administrative commands that must be installed separately. They are in the following directory locations on the CD:

  • \Support\Tools\Setup: this installs tools into %SystemRoot%\Program Files\Support Tools

  • \Support\Tools\Deploy.Cab: this contains system installation automation tools; these must be installed manually to whatever location you desire

  • \I386\AdminPak.MSI: this installs tools into a standard system software tree (i.e., under %SystemRoot%)

  • \ValueAdd\3rdParty\Mgmt\Winstel\SwiAdmLE.MSI: this installs tools into %SystemRoot%\Program Files\VERITAS Software

The Resource Kit must be purchased separately (available from most booksellers and software sellers). Once installed, these tools are located in the directory %SystemRoot%\Program Files\Resource Kit. Note that a few tools must be installed manually; they are generally located in subdirectories of \Apps on the Resource Kit CD.
