Remote Server Administration Tools (RSAT) for Windows 10 Technical Preview
Remote Server Administration Tools (RSAT) for Windows 10 Technical Preview are now available for download. Download and install the version that matches your Windows 10 installation (x86 or x64)
I wanted to know what Powershell modules this will add to a fresh Windows 10 Technical Preview for Enterprise. So I used this short script:
Get-Module -ListAvailable | Select name,version,ModuleType,ClrVersion,PowershellVersion | Export-Csv .\Win10b-modules.csv -NoTypeInformation # Install RSAT tools for Windows 10 Technical Preview # http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=44280 .\WindowsTH-KB2693643-x64.msu Get-Module -ListAvailable | Select name,version,ModuleType,ClrVersion,PowershellVersion | Export-Csv .\Win10c-modules.csv -NoTypeInformation Compare-Object -ReferenceObject (Import-Csv .\Win10b-modules.csv).name ` -DifferenceObject (Import-Csv .\Win10c-modules.csv).name
The first 3 lines save a list of the installed PS modules in a CSV file.
Next I installed RSAT:
then accepted the license agreement.
Installation finished successfully. This added shortcuts to Server Manager tool (c:\windows\system32\ServerManager.exe) on the start menu and under All Apps
A comparison of the PS module before and after the installation showed that RSAT added the following 19 modules:
If you encounter errors with Sysprep see this KB article. It’s for Windows 8 but it applies to Windows 10 Technical Preview as well.
1/8/2015 – Window Technical Preview build 9879:
Some may have access to the new Windows Technical Preview build 9879 available in the MSDN subscription secure download site.
I’ve done a fresh install of Windows Technical Preview build 9879, and attempted to install RSAT normally. That just worked:
In another fresh install of WinTP 9879 I tried using DISM:
That completed successfully as well.
Some have reported errors attempting to install RSAT for Windows TP. I’ve downloaded the latest Windows TP ISO and did a fresh install as a Gen 2 virtual machine on Hyper-V 2012 R2. I downloaded and installed RSAT without any issue. I wan not able to replicate the problem. However, here’s another way to try to install it:
Download the WindowsTH-KB2693643-x64.msu file as usual – save it to the default location under ‘downloads’
Run the following script in Powershell_ISE (as administrator – elevated permissions)
$Path = "$env:USERPROFILE\downloads\WindowsTH-KB2693643-x64.msu"
# Exctract .cab file $Target = "$env:USERPROFILE\downloads\RSAT" wusa.exe $Path /extract:$Target
# Install via DISM $CAB = "$env:USERPROFILE\downloads\RSAT\WindowsTH-KB2693643-x64.cab" Dism.exe /Online /Add-Package /PackagePath:$CAB
