Microsoft Deployment Toolkit (MDT) MMC Error – Windows PE

When setting up MDT with ADK, I installed both MicrosoftDeploymentToolkit.msi and adksetup.exe . Everything appears to be working normally, but when I go into the “DeploymentShare” -> “Properties” -> “Windows PE”, I receive an MMC snap-in error:

To resolve this issue, I looked at the error:

I did some research and I discovered that we also need to install Windows PE, which does not seem to come with ADK (as I recall, WinPE used to come with the default ADK install). In order to install Windows PE, I followed this link: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-hardware/manufacture/desktop/download-winpe–windows-pe

After installing WinPE, I no longer received the MMC error.
