While attempting to create the Veeam Recovery Media on Windows 7 computers I receive the message shown in the screenshot "Windows Recovery Environment (WnRE) component is missing. Specify the location of Microsoft Windows 7 Professional x64 installation files (you may need to insert your Windows installation media). Alternatively, download and install Windows ADK.

Since I no longer have the Windows 7 installation media, what URL addresses can I use to download and install Windows ADK?
