The Remote Server Administration Tools (RSAT) for Windows 7 SP1 are now available for download. These include the latest version of Hyper-V Manager which supports both Dynamic Memory (DM) and RemoteFX.

Here's the link:


  • Is this update needed if you had the RTM RSAT installed and then installed SP1?

  • No, not needed in those circumstances.



  • Hi, how many Hyper-V hosts can be managed with the Hyper-V manager for W7?

  • Hi,

    Is there any kind of  Hyper-V Manager included within Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 ( without hyper-V role ) able to manage a remote Hyper-V running on a core installation?

    Thanks for help.



  • Enable the Hyper-V tools which are part of RSAT (Remote Server Administration Tools). It's a Windows Feature on Server.


  • HI I have windows 7_64 biti installed on my pc, Hyper V Manager 6.1.7600. Question: It there a possibility to import into Hyper V virtual machines? Thank you

  • I'm not sure I understand your question Lucian. Windows 7 client doesn't have Hyper-V - it can be used to remotely manage a matching Windows Server 2008 R2 server. Windows 8 client was the first client Windows OS which supported Hyper-V. I'm not sure what you're asking to import?

  • First. Thank you for the prompt answer. Second I download from the Microsoft site "Windows6.1-KB958830-x64-RefreshPkg.msu" and i installed on my windows_7_64 and into "control panel / programs and features / turn Windows features on or off / Remote Server Administration Tool / Role Administration Tools / i check Hyper-V tools. I participate at the course "6425C Windows Server 2008 Active Directory Domain Services", and i liked to import the virtual machines into Hyper-V. But, as you as said it's posibile only on Windows 8. I think i will upgrade to windows 8 Thank you once again
