Free eBooks through Microsoft

Posted: July 16, 2016 in General, Uncategorized

I don’t normally post this kind of stuff.. but this was a little too good to pass up.

Microsoft is offering a huge list of free eBooks in various formats (pdf, mobi, docx, zip, ppt, ePub, xps) and the Microsoft Deployment Toolkits in both x86 & x64 formats.  A good number of them come in multiple formats so expect to have a lot of duplicates..

You can read about it here:

The list of links to get each item is here, although I’m not sure which one is which. I’ve made a few attempts to try and script something that would tell me which one was which (none off them worked) and I did manage to sort of write a script that would open up IE to each of the links sequentially for download purposes.  My goal was to try and control the number of instances using powershell jobs, but that mostly failed. I got them to open up in batches, but they just kept opening & opening & opening etc..  I was able to click through and save everything after the massive numbers of IE windows opened.
