    How do I delete C:\Users\MSSQL$ADK ?

    Hi,

    Have you installed any SQL programs? If you do, MSSQL$ADK is related to that program in
    utilizing and handling data management for that specific program. Although this program is harmless to remove, we still suggest to ignore this since that there is no harm is being done to your computer. However,
    if you want to remove this, follow these steps:


    • Open
      File Explorer
      and right click on
      Local Disk (C1903 ADK problem and workaround :).

    • Choose
      Properties.

    • Under
      Security Tab,
      To change permissions, click Edit.

    • Choose
      Full Control.

    • Select
      Apply
      and click
      OK.

    Try to check if you now see
    MSSQL$ADK.

    Let us know how it goes.

    Regards.

  3. Windows ADK 1903 fails to generate catalog

    I'm trying to regenerate my unattended setup answer file.

    In order to do this, I have to use the ADK to create a catalog from my installation media.

    I installed a fresh copy of Windows 10 Pro 1903 onto a virtual machine. I installed the ADK onto this machine as well.

    When I attempt to generate the catalog with the WSIM application. it gives me this error:

    Windows SIM was unable to generate a catalog. For troubleshooting assistance, see the topic: 'Windows System Image Manager Technical Reference' in the Windows ADK User's Guide.

    Details: Could not load file or assembly 'Microsoft.ComponentStudio.ComponentPlatformImplementation,Version=10.0.0.0,Culture=neutral,PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35' or one of its dependencies. An attempt was made to load a program with an incorrect format.

    Please keep in mind, I installed Windows 10 1903 TODAY, and I downloaded and installed the ADK for 1903 TODAY. So everything should be latest+greatest. I notice it's complaining about a version mismatch. So what do I do? I downloaded and installed straight
    from the website TODAY.. how can the versions mismatch? How do I fix this? I really need this to work, I can't do my job without this working.

    Here's the log file it generated:

    Clean Install Workaround for Vista

    You may remember this news story on techPowerUp! a couple of days ago relating to the lack of clean installs when using the Upgrade Editions of Vista, which required an old OS to be installed. However, Paul Thurrott has managed to find a workaround for this issue, which ironically lets users do a clean install Vista without any previous version of Windows, albeit a little tedious. Here are the steps:
    • Boot from the Windows Vista Upgrade DVD as normal
    • When prompted for a product code, leave this blank
    • Select the version of Vista you have purchased and let Vista install
    • When you boot to your desktop for the first time, run the Vista setup from Windows
    • This time enter your product key
    • When asked whether you want to do an Upgrade of Custom install, select custom and choose a clean install
    • Windows will now install for a second time and you should be able to activate it
    Remember, these steps are only advised for use in order to achieve a clean install of Vista, it is only legal to use the upgrade editions if you have previously purchased the appropriate version of Windows.
