If you already applied my Workaround, you can install the Update, I tried it and can't find any issue with installing the new RSAT update.
This post was provided as a workaround. Don't use it any longer!!!!!!!!
Get the Remote Server Administration Tools for Windows 7 with Service Pack 1 (SP1) and use this new installer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
When you try to install the RSAT on Windows7 Sp1 you get this error:
"This update is not applicable to your computer"
MS documented this here:
I found a workaround which was censored at the MS Blogs, so I post it here:
extract the x86fre_GRMRSAT_MSU.msu to a folder like D:\RSAT
Run this expand command to extract the CAB:
expand -f:* "D:\RSAT\Windows6.1-KB958830-x86.cab" "D:\RSAT\expand"
Download the Windows 7 Sp1
4. Run the following command:
to extract the Sp1 to D:\Sp1
5. run this
expand -f:* "D:\Sp1\windows6.1-KB976932-X86.cab" "D:\RSAT\sp1"
to extract the Sp1 CAB to D:\RSAT\sp1.
6. Install the RSAT MUMs (look at at the taskmgr when the pkgmgr finished to run the next command)
pkgmgr /ip /m:"D:\RSAT\expand\microsoft-windows-remoteserveradministrationtools-package~31bf3856ad364e35~x86~~6.1.7600.16385.mum"
pkgmgr /ip /m:"D:\RSAT\expand\microsoft-windows-remoteserveradministrationtools-package~31bf3856ad364e35~x86~en-us~6.1.7600.16385.mum"(replace the en-us MUM with the languages you have installed!)
pkgmgr /ip /m:"D:\RSAT\expand\microsoft-windows-remoteserveradministrationtools-package-minilp~31bf3856ad364e35~x86~en-us~6.1.7600.16385.mum"(replace the en-us MUM with the languages you have installed!)
pkgmgr /ip /m:"D:\RSAT\Sp1\microsoft-windows-remoteserveradministrationtools-package~31bf3856ad364e35~x86~~6.1.7601.17514.mum"
7. Reboot (if needed) and open "Turn Windows Features on or Off" and activate the RSAT Tools you want.
Enjoy the RSAT Tools in Windows 7 Sp1 until MS provides an Sp1 compatible Update in April.
For a x64 Windows, replace x86 with amd64.
