Install Threshold 2 RSAT Tools on 14251

So recently Windows Insiders got their hands on build 14251.  One thing I discovered with this build is that the RSAT (Remote Server Administration) tools no longer install on this build.  Fortunately there is a way to get the tools to install on this build and they work just fine.

I’d like to thank Greig Mitchell (@Mitchell90 on twitter) for this tip.

To install the tools on 14251 first download the RSAT tools for TH2 to a folder of your choosing.

Open a command prompt as admin to the folder you downloaded the tools to.

Type wusa.exe WindowsTH-KB2693643-x64.msu /quiet

Wait for a bit for the install to complete.  You can also monitor task manager, when wusa.exe closes, the installation process is completed.

Now you can manage all your servers as normal with your RSAT tools Smile.  Enjoy!

    FYI, normal UI installation seems to be fixed in the 14271 build of Windows 10
