Install features on demand offline on Windows Server and Windows 10

This also works with the Insider Preview version.

  1. Download FoD ISO (I use my.visualstudio.com. I used the most recent version.
  2. Install using dism.

To perform the installation from the FOD ISO you must first mount the ISO. Then use the /source: option to the dism command. Note, the /source: option must be after the /add-capability option.

If ISO is mounted on F: the commands below would install the DNS and Active Directory RSAT tools.

PS C:\Users\larntz> Dism.exe /online /add-capability /source:F: /capabilityname:Rsat.dns.tools~~~~0.0.1.0

Deployment Image Servicing and Management tool
Version: 10.0.19013.1
