RSAT for Windows 7 x86 or x64

RSAT for Windows Vista will not work on Windows 7.

There is a version for Windows 7, though we needed to dig around for it:


The links on the Microsoft Download site do not work.

But, this site has a direct link to the downloads themselves (x86 and x64) that work as of this writing: Remote Server Administration Tools (RSAT).

After downloading and installing them, note that they need to be enabled in the Windows 7 Programs and Features on or off.


Note the lack of a check mark beside the Remote Server Administration Tools feature.

Once in, we have access to the Hyper-V Manager which is what spurred the search on in the first place.
