    IMPORTANT: Starting with Windows 10 October 2018 Update, add RSAT tools right from Windows 10. Just go to "Manage optional features" in Settings and click "Add a feature" to see the list of available RSAT tools.

    The downloadable packages above can still be used to install RSAT on Windows 10 version 1607.

  • Supported Operating Systems

    Windows 10

    **Remote Server Administration Tools for Windows 10 can be installed ONLY on computers that are running the full release of Windows 10 Professional, Windows 10 Enterprise, or Windows 10 Education.** Remote Server Administration Tools cannot be installed on Windows RT, computers with an Advanced RISC Machine (ARM) architecture, or other system-on-chip devices.

    Remote Server Administration Tools for Windows 10 runs on both x86- and x64-based editions of the full release of Windows 10, Professional, Enterprise or Education editions. Download and install the version that matches the architecture of the computer on which you plan to install the administration tools. If you are not sure whether your computer is x86- or x64-based, see How to determine whether a computer is running a 32-bit version or 64-bit version of the Windows operating system.

    Remote Server Administration Tools for Windows 10 is available in the following languages: cs-CZ, de-DE, en-US, es-ES, fr-FR, hu-HU, it-IT, ja-JP, ko-KR, nl-NL, pl-PL, pt-BR, pt-PT, ru-RU, sv-SE, tr-TR, zh-CN, and zh-TW. If the system UI language of your Windows 10 operating system does not match any of the available RSAT languages, you must first install a Windows 10 Language Pack for a language that is supported by RSAT, and then try installing Remote Server Administration Tools for Windows 10 again.

    IMPORTANT: Remove all older versions of Administration Tools Pack or Remote Server Administration Tools—including older prerelease versions, and releases of the tools for different languages or locales—from the computer before you install Remote Server Administration Tools for Windows 10. Only one copy at a time of Remote Server Administration Tools can be installed on a computer. If you have upgraded to Windows 10 from an older release of Windows, you will need to install Remote Server Administration Tools for Windows 10 on the computer; no earlier releases of Remote Server Administration Tools are still installed on a computer that you have upgraded to Windows 10.

    Remote Server Administration Tools for Windows 10 includes support for remote management of computers that are running Windows Server. It can be installed on Windows 10, but it cannot be installed on Windows Server.

    Earlier releases of Remote Server Administration Tools (such as those for Windows 8.1) are not available--nor do they run--on Windows 10.

    Server Manager is included with Remote Server Administration Tools for Windows 10; GUI-based tools that are part of this release of Remote Server Administration Tools can be opened by using commands on the Tools menu of the Server Manager console. To use Server Manager to access and manage remote servers that are running Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2012, or Windows Server 2012 R2, you must install several updates on the older operating systems. For more information about requirements for using Server Manager to manage remote servers, see Manage multiple, remote servers with Server Manager.

    To install specific RSAT tools on Windows 10 October 2018 Update or later

    Starting with Windows 10 October 2018 Update, RSAT is included as a set of "Features on Demand" right from Windows 10. Do not download an RSAT package from this page. Instead, just go to "Manage optional features" in Settings and click "Add a feature" to see the list of available RSAT tools. Select and install the specific RSAT tools you need. To see installation progress, click the Back button to view status on the "Manage optional features" page.

    See the list of RSAT tools available via Features on Demand. In addition to installing via the graphical Settings app, you can also install specific RSAT tools via command line or automation using DISM /Add-Capability.

    One benefit of Features on Demand is that installed features persist across Windows 10 version upgrades!

    To uninstall specific RSAT tools on Windows 10 October 2018 Update or later

    On Windows 10, open the Settings app, go to "Manage optional features", select and uninstall the specific RSAT tools you wish to remove. Note that in some cases, you will need to manually uninstall dependencies. Specifically, if RSAT tool A is needed by RSAT tool B, then choosing to uninstall RSAT tool A will fail if RSAT tool B is still installed. In this case, uninstall RSAT tool B first, and then uninstall RSAT tool A. Also note that in some cases, uninstalling an RSAT tool may appear to succeed even though the tool is still installed. In this case, restarting the PC will complete the removal of the tool.

    See the list of RSAT tools including dependencies. In addition to uninstalling via the graphical Settings app, you can also uninstall specific RSAT tools via command line or automation using DISM /Remove-Capability.

    Issue: RSAT FOD installation fails with error code 0x800f0954
    Impact: RSAT FODs on Windows 10 1809 (October 2018 Update) in WSUS/SCCM environments
    Resolution: To install FODs on a domain-joined PC which receives updates through WSUS or SCCM, you will need to change a Group Policy setting to enable downloading FODs directly from Windows Update or a local share. For more details and instructions on how to change that setting, see this topic.

    Impact: RSAT FODs on Windows 10 1809 (October 2018 Update)

    Issue: RSAT FOD uninstallation via Settings app may fail
    Impact: RSAT FODs on Windows 10 1809 (October 2018 Update)
    Resolution: In some cases, uninstallation failures are due to the need to manually uninstall dependencies. Specifically, if RSAT tool A is needed by RSAT tool B, then choosing to uninstall RSAT tool A will fail if RSAT tool B is still installed. In this case, uninstall RSAT tool B first, and then uninstall RSAT tool A. See the list of RSAT FODs including dependencies.

    Issue: RSAT FOD uninstallation appears to succeed, but the tool is still installed
    Impact: RSAT FODs on Windows 10 1809 (October 2018 Update)

    Issue: RSAT missing after Windows 10 upgrade
    Impact: Any RSAT .MSU package installation (prior to RSAT FODs) not automatically reinstalled
    Resolution: An RSAT installation cannot be persisted across OS upgrades due to the RSAT .MSU being delivered as a Windows Update package. Please install RSAT again after upgrading Windows 10.

    Issue: DNS Tools missing
    Impact: WS_1709 RSAT package users
