This post is a sticky post to track the versions of MDT, mainly because they are called Microsoft Deployment Toolkit 2013 and the filename is always MicrosoftDeploymentToolkit2013_x64.msi. It’s not big and it’s not clever Microsoft! Please give us a clue.

So in the absence of any useful info, I’ve created a table to document it myself.
