    • Supported Operating System

      Windows Vista Business, Windows Vista Enterprise, Windows Vista Ultimate

        Service Pack 1 (SP1) or later versions of Windows Vista Service Packs is required.
      • Note: RSAT should not be installed on a computer that is running the Windows Server 2003 Administration Tools Pack or Windows 2000 Server® Administration Tools Pack. Please remove all versions of Administration Tools Pack from the computer before installing RSAT.

        Only one copy of RSAT can be installed on a computer at one time. Before installing a new package, remove any existing versions of RSAT, including any copies that are in different languages.

        1. Download the RSAT package from the Microsoft Web site.

        2. Double-click the downloaded package to start the Setup wizard. Follow the instructions in the wizard to complete the installation.

        3. Open Control Panel, click Programs, and then click Turn Windows features on or off under Programs and Features. If you are prompted to provide permission by User Account Control, click Continue.

        4. In the Windows Features dialog box, select the remote administration snap-ins and tools that you want to install, and then click OK.
        5. Configure the Start menu to display the Administration Tools shortcut.


          • Right click Start, and then click Properties.

          • On the Start Menu tab, click Customize.

          • In the Customize Start Menu dialog box, scroll down to System Administrative Tools, and then select Display on the All Programs menu and the Start menu. Click OK.

          • Shortcuts for snap-ins installed by RSAT are added to the Administrative Tools list on the Start menu.
