Download Free Windows 2000 Resource Kit Tools

by Daniel Petri - January 8, 2009

Where can I download the Windows 2000 Resource Kit tools?

You can download the Windows 2000 Resource Kit software tools listed on this page for free and install them on your computer. These utilities can help you streamline administrative tasks such as managing Active Directory, administering security features, working with Group Policy and Terminal Services, automating application deployment, and other important jobs. Nearly 300 such tools are included on the Windows 2000 Server Resource Kit companion CD.

Reskit

These tools are designed to be installed and run only on Microsoft Windows 2000. They are neither localized nor supported by Microsoft.

Note: Microsoft only lets you download a subset of the original Resource Kit Tools. I've managed to gather many other tools for you to download besides the ones from Microsoft. These tools are linked as direct downloads, while the MS-provided ones link you to a description page from where you can download the files.

Note: Please note that these are NOT the entire Reskit tools set. The Reskit has a greater number of tools and documentation, and it is one of the most valuable resources for system administrators. To read more about the W2K Reskit please see my Book Recommendations page (where you can also buy the package and other valuable books).

Note: Links may change or break. If you find any broken links please notify me .

Note: If any of you are willing to provide hosting space for these tools please let me know .
