PSA: New RSAT for Windows 10 v1607 released

Microsoft released a new version of RSAT (Remote Server Administration Tool) for Windows 10. The updated version was published last week, prior to the Anniversary Update, and is available to all eligible admins or other users.

Microsoft still hasn’t published any official announcement post and its changelog also remains unknown, but perhaps users who install the latest version of RSAT will be able to notice some changes.

Since the new version was released before the Anniversary Update, once you install Windows 10 version 1607, the RSAT will be removed. A few users have already complained about this saying that the Anniversary Update deleted RSAT from their computer. However, this is completely normal, as every major update usually deletes RSAT.

“Don’t know if this happened to anyone else, but once i upgraded (not clean install) it uninstalled my RSAT tools!”

That shouldn’t be a big problem since RSAT is available for download. So, if the Anniversary Update removed this tool from your computer, just download it again and it should work without any issues. You can download the latest version of Microsoft’s Remote Server Administration Tool from this link.

“Remote Server Administration Tools for Windows 10 includes Server Manager, Microsoft Management Console (MMC) snap-ins, consoles, Windows PowerShell cmdlets and providers, and command-line tools for managing roles and features that run on Windows Server Technical Preview.”

In case you’ve already downloaded the new version of Windows 10’s RSAT and noticed any changes, please feel free to share them with us in the comments.
