    Download Windows XP Reskit Tools

    Posted on by Daniel Petri in Downloads with 1 Comment

    Where can I get the Windows XP Support Tools?

    The Windows XP Resource Kit Tools are a set of software tools for administrators, developers, and power users to manage Active Directory, Group Policy, TCP/IP Networks, Registry, Security, Scalability and many other areas of the Windows XP operating system.

    Note: I recommend using the Windows Server 2003 Support Tools instead, as they are newer than the XP ones and include a few new tools.

    The Windows Support Tools for Windows XP can be installed only on a computer that is running the Windows XP operating system. The Windows Support Tools for Windows XP cannot be used to upgrade Microsoft Windows NT or Microsoft Windows 2000 Support Tools installed on Windows NT or Windows 2000.

    Since Windows XP SP2 came out, a newer version of the Support Tools is available for download, see link below.

    The following Support Tools have been updated in Service Pack 2:

    • bitsadmin.exe
    • extract.exe
    • httpcfg.exe
    • iadstools.dll
    • ipseccmd.exe
    • netdom.exe
    • replmon.exe

    Note: The original XP Reskit tools are available on the XP installation CD in the ‘support’tools directory.

    Supported Operating Systems:

    • Windows Server 2003, Windows XP
    • Windows XP 2600
    • Windows XP SP1 and SP2
    • Windows Server 2003 family (3790)

    Plus, 30 MB of free disk space are needed for the installation.

    Download the Windows XP Support Tools (4.8mb – smaller download from Microsoft, missing the Deployment Tools and some features)

    Download the Windows XP Support Tools (12.5mb)

    Download the Windows XP Support Tools (12.5mb – local download – slow)
