  • I am experiencing the same issue as well. The installation appears to go thru the steps but there are no features available when I go to add them. As well, the update does not appear in programs and features as having been installed.

  • Jeremy - not sure where you got that build of Windows 7 from but it is *not* RTM - to the best of my knowledge 16384 was an internal only build. RTM is 16385. You need to upgrade.



  • Vered - that build is not RTM. You can only install the final RSAT tools on Windows 7 RTM.
