    Admin powershell will not run local exe


    I'm trying to set up a dual boot system with Win8, (already installed on a new laptop), and Win 7.
    Following instructions from a forum thread I got as far as downloading oscdimg.exe into the Win7_ISO directory.
    However whatever I try, full path, etc., I get this error
    Code:
    oscdimg.exe : The term 'oscdimg.exe' is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet, function, script file,
     or operableprogram.
     Check the spelling of the name, or if a path was included, verify that the path is correct and try again.
    The command I am trying to run is
    Code:
    PS C:\Win7 ISO> oscdimg -w4 -os -lWin_7_x64_UEFI_ISO9660 -m -o -n -pEF -e -bc:\Win7 ISO\efi\microsoft\boot\efisys.bin c:\Win7 ISO c:\Win_7_x64_UEFI_ISO9660.iso
    It's a steep learning curve

    You need to download Assessment and Deployment Kit (ADK) and install it. After installed, you'll have a Deployment and Imaging Tools Environment tile in the Start Menu, run it as admin.

    OK thanks, topgun. Sorted the problem.
    Warning to others, though - it took over three hours to download PE and other(s) programs.
    I have a good, 7/8Mbps, connection so not the slow down there.
