Applies To: Windows 8, Windows Server 2012

The Deployment Image Servicing and Management (DISM) platform is used to mount and service Windows® images before deployment. A subset of DISM commands can be used on online Windows images. You can use DISM tools to mount, and get information about, Windows image (.wim) files or virtual hard disks (.vhd or .vhdx). You can also use it to install, uninstall, configure, and update Windows features, packages, and drivers in a Windows image or to change the edition of a Windows image.

This topic introduces the 22 DISM cmdlets available in the DISM PowerShell module. This module is available in Windows® 8 and Windows Server® 2012. On other supported operating systems, you can install the DISM module from the Windows Assessment and Deployment Kit (Windows ADK). For more information about how to use the DISM PowerShell module installed with the ADK, see How to Use DISM in Windows PowerShell.

The DISM platform also includes a command-line tool, DISM.exe, and the DISM API. The command-line tool is available in the Windows Assessment and Deployment Kit (Windows ADK) and includes additional functionality include servicing commands for international settings.
