The WDK ISO download link has been moved off of WHDC


For those of you who are trying to find the WDK download link on WHDC, it is not longer there. It has moved to the Microsoft Connect site. Peter Wieland previously described how to get the WDK Beta 2 ISO from this site and nearly the same instructions apply, you can read them here. The 2 changes to the instructions are that there is no longer a survey (step 4) and the link’s name is “Windows Driver Kit RTM” (instead of “WDK Beta 2”). The big gotcha for me was finding the download link (step 5), which is nicely “hidden” on the left hand side of the page. Hopefully you can find it faster than I did ;).

    I sought Windows Driver Kit RTM in google, I found this link:

    https://connect.microsoft.com/Downloads/DownloadDetails.aspx?SiteID=148&DownloadID=4067

    I logg in but I have an error: 4870fa8f-9503-4f07-a622-d95c280ce010

    Thank you!

    Instead of going directly to the link within the connect site, start from the top (http://connect.microsoft.com) and navigate using the site to get to the download link.

    On https://connect.microsoft.com/availableconnections.aspx, I don’t see Windows Driver Kit RTM ^^

    The name of the program is now "Windows Logo Kit (WLK), Windows Driver Kit (WDK) and Windows Driver Framework (WDF)" … if you cannot find it under the "Available Connections" link, try clicking on the "My Participation" link right below it.  If you have already signed up for the program, it is not show in the Availalbe Connections list.
