I have a brand new Win Server 2012 R2 image. I want to run some csvde scripts, but I get:

'csvde' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.

On Win 8 I used to install Remote Server Administration Tools to be able to use CSVDE, but now I can't find anything like this for Server 2012. How can I add this feature?

    Can you verify if the binary is present? dir /s /b C:\*csvde.exe from a cmd prompt. Should be one in C:\Windows\System32 and C:\Windows\SysWOW64. If it's there, check ECHO %PATH%, your environment might be broken. – jscott Jul 18 '14 at 9:43
  • Non of the paths contains csvde.exe – fishmong3r Jul 18 '14 at 10:49

Sounds like you need to install the RSAT Active Directory Tools. From an elevated Powershell prompt try the following.

Get status of the feature

 Get-WindowsFeature RSAT-AD-Tools

Should display something like this...

 Display Name                                            Name                         Install State
 ------------                                            ----                       -------------
    [ ] AD DS and AD LDS Tools                      RSAT-AD-Tools                  Available

Then to install the feature:

 Install-WindowsFeature RSAT-AD-Tools

  • Yeah, meanwhile I found it. It can be installed from the server roles/features as well. Thanks. – fishmong3r Jul 18 '14 at 11:11
