Is there any way how to install just ADB without whole SDK?

I need to install just ADB on customerĀ“s PC to connect to android phone and install apk there. And because of SDK size is it possible to do it without installing whole SDK?

Answer

Yes you can

Installing ADB in windows without Download Android SDK

  1. Firstly, you'll need a program that can partially download contents of zip files from the internet.
  2. Once that's set up, go to the SDK download page and grab the link to the SDK.
  3. In the zip file, navigate to "android-sdk-windows\tools"
  4. From there, select only "adb.exe", "AdbWinApi.dll" and "AdbWinUsbApi.dll"
  5. Download.
