Installing RSAT on Windows 10 1809

After updating to Windows 10 (1809), I realized that Microsoft did not have a download for RSAT 1809. They highest version was 1803. Here, I will share what I had to do to get RSAT on Windows 10 1809.

Microsoft Moved RSAT to Optional Features

In the Settings of Windows, go to Apps, then Manage optional features.

Here you can select the RSAT apps that you want to install.

After clicking install, the ‘page’ will refresh.  If the app that you ‘installed’ reappears, then it wasn’t installed. (See ‘Turning Off UseWUServer’ below)

If it disappeared, then it installed.  **You may have you reboot for it to show in your Windows Administrative Tools folder**.

Turning Off UseWUServer

If you notice that everytime you select to install an RSAT Optional Feature, it reappears. Then you may need to turn off the UseWUServer. To do this:

Change the registry value to from 1 to 0 for “UseWUServer” at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate\AU.

Restart the wuauserv service. Then retry installing the RSAT Optional Features.

Checking Installed RSAT Services

Open PowerShell as an Administrator and run

  1. One thing I would really like to say is that before purchasing more laptop or computer memory, check out the machine within which it can be installed. In the event the machine will be running Windows XP, for instance, the particular memory threshold is 3.25GB. Adding more than this would simply constitute a new waste. Be sure that one’s mother board can handle an upgrade quantity, as well. Great blog post.

  2. Greetings from Idaho! I’m bored to death at work so I decided to check out your website on my iphone during lunch break. I love the knowledge you provide here and can’t wait to take a look when I get home. I’m shocked at how quick your blog loaded on my cell phone .. I’m not even using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyways, very good blog!
