How to Get Adobe Web Tools to Install on Windows 8.1/Windows 7.1 and Windows Server 2012 R2

A few years ago, I wrote about how you could install Adobe web tools on Windows 7/8.1 via the Windows Command Prompt.

It was a bit of a pain, so here’s how to do it.

If you’ve already done it, you’ll want to know how to use the Windows command prompt to get your tooling to work on Windows 10. 

If you don’t have access to the Windows PowerShell console, here’s the simple step-by-step guide: Download the Adobe Web Tooling for Windows 10 tool. 

Install the tool.

Run the command below to install the Windows 10 web tools. 

Set the PATH variable to point to the path of your toolkit installation: $PATH = “%windir%\C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Web\Tooling” Add the web tools to the PATH environment variable. 

Run the following command to install all the Adobe web tooling: adobewebtools.exe /install $PATH If you’re having trouble, you may need to edit the PATH variables to point the correct path to the downloaded Adobe Web tools.

The path to your tool installation is in C:\ProgramData\Adobe, and the path to its source is C:\Adobe. 

Now that the tooling is installed, you can launch the Adobe app on your computer and try out the new features of the new version of Windows 10: Now, if you don,t want to lose your favorite Adobe tool, you might also want to run some of the advanced features of Windows 7 and 8.0 via the web. 

Download and install the Adobe Edge for Windows web tools Adobe Edge is a new version that adds the ability to create a new tab, switch tabs, and even open web content in different tabs. 

The Windows web browser on Windows can be configured to use Edge for browsing web content.

Now if you want to install Adobe Edge on Windows Server 2016 R2, you need to install and configure Windows Server 2008 R2 to run the new Edge browser: Start the command prompt with administrator privileges and navigate to the location where you have the Windows service files. 

Click the Start button and type msconfig.exe to open the msconfig service manager. 

Next, double-click the msConfig folder and open the following properties: msconfig.ini [Configuring Configuration] SecurityMode=SecurityMode3 (SecurityMode 3 is for systems with limited security) ProtocolVersion=1.0 (Protocol version 1.0 is only supported in Windows 7) UserPrincipalName=AdobeUsername Domain User=AdobesUser Server=Server01 Port=3306 PortMax=65536 SessionFilePath=\\AdobeWebTools.exe SessionLogFilePath=/home/AdobysUser/Desktop/AdobeWindowsEdge.log SessionPath= \\AdobeUsersWebTooling.exe  Save the file and close the msrc.exe file. 

You can then restart the Windows machine by right-clicking on the msservice.exe and selecting Properties. 

Navigate to the Security tab and set the security mode to SecurityMode3. 

This will allow Edge to be used in a web browser. 

Finally, restart the machine by restarting msconfig: You should now be able to access the new Windows web experience with the Edge browser.
