I'm trying to create a DaRT image from the Microsoft desktop optimization pack. However I'm stuck where is is asking for the debugging tools. I installed the tools from the link they provided (See below) but the image wizard won't accept any of the tool locations. By default it had "C:\Program Files\Debugging Tools for Windows (x64)" but the tools I downloaded installed in a different location of "C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\8.0\Debuggers". So maybe that is the problem. Am I installing the wrong tools? If they are the right tools what folder or file do I need to select from within the DaRT Recovery Image Wizard?




The tools I download are located here

There are 32 and 64-bit versions of the debugging tools.  You must install the 64 bit version.

Download the SDK from here and be sure to install the 64bit debugging tools.  You may have to be running on the 64-bit OS to do this.

I tried installing the SDK from that link but it requires Windows 8 and I'm running windows 7. Also the "C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\8.0\Debuggers" folder does have a x64 sub folder in it, but I still could not select any of the folder inside that.

Download the Win7 SDK ISO from here: http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=18950

Mount it with an ISO utility (http://www.slysoft.com/en/virtual-clonedrive.html)

Do NOT run the overall setup.  

The 64-bit Debugging Tools .MSIs are in Setup\WinSDKDebuggingTools_ia64.
