I have installed the RSAT tool on my WIndows 7 but I am unable to start the tools, I cannot find any of tham..
Can someone help me on this ?
Peter, after installing the update you can go to control panel -> programs and features -> turn windows features on or off, enable the tools you want under the Remote Server Administration Tools entry you'll find there.
What I would like to know is why at this point RSAT is not included in the default install just like the rest of the features.
By the way, the RC version is here: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=f6c62797-791c-48e3-b754-c7c0a09f32f3&displaylang=en
The tool is not in either of the above locations - it would be really nice to find the install prgm so I be an administrator again....
