I have installed Windows 10 from our shiny new Windows 10 enterprise image on WDS and like normal when I get a fresh install, I went to install RSAT. For the first couple of weeks, it was only listed as being part of the Windows 10 preview. Now it is available but only if you are on US english. Following the instructions to add the US English language has resulted in nothing. It "installs" but nothing is actually installed. Nothing appears in Features or anywhere else.

Also, I have noticed that various GUI options like DHCP, Remote Access, NPS, and IPAM are no longer available as RSAT tools, instead you are directed to use powershell.

Anyone been able to get RSAT to install under Windows 10?
Is RSAT going the way of the dodo now that powershell is the de-facto standard for interacting with Windows server?
Is the Windows GUI going away and us powershell admins will rule the world?

It does make some things really quick and easy though to just pull up a remote console and quickly check something. Having to RDP into a server to check a couple of DNS entries or a domain user group is so server 2003.

RSAT was only released in English (US), so you have to have that language pack installed

The Windows 8.1 RSAT was the same
The Windows 8 RSAT was the same
The Windows 7 RSAT was the same

Cheers, that is the same installer I have already tried though. Must be something with getting en-GB media through the Microsoft Partner program instead of en-US.

Thanks for that, I have that language pack installed though and it still does not work as far as I can see. Nothing appears to be installed in Windows Features where it used to be and nothing new is under Windows Admin tools in the start menu.

EDIT - Making some progress, the language appears in my languages list, but if I dig into the old control panel, it tells me that a language pack is not available for US english. Maybe it is not actually being installed.

We had en-GB language version from the Microsoft partner portal just like our current windows 10 image. RSAT happily installed with no mucking around adding language packs etc. Is it because they stripped out the language packs to make the install smaller maybe?

Last ditch attempt, our WSUS was not set to download language packs for Windows 10. Maybe if I set it to have the language packs available, it might find the pack and allow me to download it.

That was it, I had to download it and approve it through WSUS first and only then would it give me the option to download it. Will try install RSAT after a reboot and see.

**EDIT** yep, that was it.
If you have en-GB installed for some reason, and you are using managed updates through WSUS and you want RSAT:
Go to your WSUS server - make sure you are downloading language packs and the en-US ones are approved for install.
Then go back to your language settings. It may actually download automatically the way it is meant to, but otherwise you can force it using instructions here: https://www.stephendonaghy.com/?p=25.
Then you can reboot and install RSAT and then reboot again.
