Is there a simple way of installing the Windows 8 version of Deployment Image Servicing and Management (DISM) tool on Windows 7?
Windows 7 does have a version of
DISM installed, but with much less functionality, in particular it lacks the following commands
dism /Delete-Image dism /Split-Image dism /Export-Image
I tried a naive way (below) of copy-paste. It doesn't work. When I call the windows 8 binary, it fails with a message box "missing
api-ms-win-downlevel-kernel32-l1-1-0.dll" (is that a real DLL, by the way?
- Copy the binaries from windows 8
- Paste them to win7
- Register each dll with an elevated
regsvr32.exe. Some succeed, some fail
