Exercise in frustration

Richard Siddaway Richard Siddaway Profile: Richard Siddaway

If you would like an exercise in frustration – try installing the RSAT tools for Windows 2012 onto Windows 8. If your PS’s language is set to en-US it should work. If it is anything else give up now and go watch the grass grow – it will be infinitely more rewarding.

Many people outside of the US want to administer Windows Servers from their PC – why is it so hard? Especially on an English system!!!

You have to go through so many hoops to try and get the language pack installed – its just not worth the effort. I can spin up a Windows 2012 VM to do my admin quicker!
