Windows 7 SP1 and RSAT tools don’t work until Spring 2011!

 

I was trying to install the RSAT tools on a newly imaged machine at my customer today and I found an issue after I spent the time of downloading and running the tools.

Per Microsoft’s download page, “To run Remote Server Administration Tools for Windows 7 on a computer that is running Windows 7 with SP1, first install Remote Server Administration Tools, and then install Service Pack 1. The service pack updates the installed Remote Server Administration Tools for Windows 7 files to be compatible with SP1. This workaround applies only to the SP1 upgrade; it will not work if you install Windows 7 with SP1 from a DVD. Remote Server Administration Tools for Windows 7 with SP1 is scheduled for release in Spring 2011.”
