  • Ben,

    When will the standalone hyper-v server 2008 r2 be released (technet/msdn) will this also be ont august the 14th? (like 2008 r2 itself)

  • I downloaded it but 2 things.  1 the pointer for help goes to a non existent page, also the RTM x86 package which states it runs for 64 bit RTM of Windows 7 doesn't install.  it tells you that "the update is not applicable for your computer".  have you installed on 64 bit RTM of Win 7 (I have ultimate edition)

  • I just upgraded my Vista x64 Enterprise machine (which had RSAT for Vista x64 on it) tol Windows 7 Enterprise. If I wanted to install the Windows 7 version of RSAT (which I'm guessing would be the right thing) should I uninstall the Vista version before I attempt a Windows 7 RSAT install? If so, I see it in "Turning Windows features on or off" but there isn't a uninstall there. I'm guessing I need to look at "view installed updates" to uninstall it?

  • Powershell -

    Sorry, I cannot say.

    JP -

    It is working fine on my x64 system, and the help files are there.  You might want to try downloading the files again.

    JB -

    You should be able to install the new components without uninstalling the old components.

    Cheers,

  • Why is the installer SO LARGE compared to Vista's RSAT? Is it because of Hyper-V remote management tools are larger? Can you make 2 versions, one a slimmed down minimal version? 220 MB is unacceptable for RSAT.

  • Someone -

    I do not know why it is so large, but I swear it is not our fault! :-)

    Cheers,

  • Installation wasn't very clear on x86 Win 7 RTM.  After running GUI installer I couldn't find Remote Desktops (in search), wasn't listed in snap-ins to add.  Tried the command line installation options (MS must of hired some open source guru to come up w/ that method - those dism command lines would make any Unix old timer proud), still no snap-ins finally on a whim tried add remove windows features and found Remote Desktops already checked.  Clicked ok and then the snap is there.  

    Maybe I didn't read the instructions good enough but why on earth can't the GUI installer just put an icon in Adminstative Tools and be done with it?

  • Great, thanks for the install advice. I read this blog almost every day, I've incorporated it into my morning-site-viewing-coffee-drinking-wakeup routine. It's really helped me successfully put together and complete virtualization projects on the enterprise level (at my full time) and at various small business (consulting and off-hours gigs) as well as my personal environment.

    Thanks for all the topics and comments!

  • Hi,

  • I'm having the same problem as JP - "the update is not applicable for your computer"

    Win 7/64 Build 7100. 8GB Ram.  No previous RSATs installed.  Dowloaded it twice, even tried 32 bit version.

    Any ideas?

  • I just tried it on a 32 bit laptop Win 7/32 Build 7100. No previous RSAT here either.  Same error, "the update is not applicable".

    How strange!!

  • Having the same issue too trying to run RSAT install on W7/32 Build 7100

    Tried on virtual machine and a physical workstation.

    I have downloaded the install called x86fre_GRMRSAT_MSU.msu - the digital signature timestamp is 7th of August.

    Anyone have a fix for this?

  • Same here, I have Windows 7 Ultimate 64 (V6.1 Build 7100) and I'm getting "update not applicable".  What a drag.

  • To everyone running build 7100 - that is the RC version of Windows 7.  These tools will only install on the RTM version of Windows 7.

    Cheers,

    Ben

  • Is it just me or is calling the RSAT download for x64 architectures

    amd64fre_GRMRSATX_MSU.msu

    slightly confusing? Took me longer than it should do to realise that was for all 64 bit CPUs not just AMD. Wouldnt x64 be a better label?

    Or am i missing something?
