2 Install (RSAT) Remote Server Administration Tools for Windows 7

After Download the RSAT from MSFT website, I tried to install it on my Win7 Home Premium.  I got below error message. It is because MSFT does not support it on Home Premium version.


After asking the google, I found the work around. Please note, only use below method at your own risk.

Step 1: Extract the installation binary.

I use 7ZIP to do so .

Step2: Expand the cab file

expand -f:* "C:\temp\" "C:\temp\test"

Step3 : Install

Some post suggests to use DSIM as pkgmgr is deprecate from MSFT.From procexp, pkgmgr is calling DSIM.

pkgmgr /ip /m:"C:\temp\test\microsoft-windows-remoteserveradministrationtools-package~31bf3856ad364e35~amd64~~6.1.7600.16385.mum"
pkgmgr /ip /m:"C:\temp\test\microsoft-windows-remoteserveradministrationtools-package~31bf3856ad364e35~amd64~en-us~6.1.7600.16385.mum"
pkgmgr /ip /m:"C:\temp\test\microsoft-windows-remoteserveradministrationtools-package-minilp~31bf3856ad364e35~amd64~en-us~6.1.7600.16385.mum"
pkgmgr /ip /m:"C:\temp\test\microsoft-windows-remoteserveradministrationtools-package~31bf3856ad364e35~amd64~en-us~6.1.7601.17514.mum"


After it is done. you will need to reboot it and Enable it from windows feature.
