I started a new job with a new Windows 10 laptop with up to date patches (not anniversary edition.) I installed RSAT Tools for 10 (WindowsTH-RSAT_WS2016-x64.msu). I can open it and see my domain but when I double click on a group to see it's properties it crashes with a .NET runtime error.

Application: dsac.exe
Framework Version: v4.0.30319
Description: The process was terminated due to an unhandled exception.
Exception Info: System.Reflection.TargetInvocationException

Even if I open the old Active Directory Users and Groups snap-in I double click and only see security settings (not what I expect). So in the meantime I am just hopping on a server to do admin work :-(

  • 2016 rsat ? Try 2012r2 rsat – yagmoth555 Oct 20 '16 at 22:26
  • @yagmoth555. I tried that on my Win10 PC and got a message saying that version isn't compatible with my version of Windows. – Rasky Oct 31 '16 at 14:12

The 2017 January patch bundle removed RSAT as part of the update. Reinstalled RSAT for Windows 10 (KB2693643) fixed the issue.

I used the instructions on this TechNet Article to fix a similar issue with ADAC. Let me know if it works for you!

  • The versions on my 2012 server are very old compared to what is currently on my Win10 box...so I did not want to try this. – Rasky Dec 13 '16 at 20:54

I fixed a bug removal windows security updates.
Windows 2012 r2 uninstall kb3205401
Windows 10 uninstall kb3205386

UPD: Released 11/01/2017 KB3210721 update replaces kb3205386, is also not recommended for installer. After you install ADAC receive the error "Active Directory Administrative Center must close due to an unknown error."

  • I have neither of the KB's mentioned above on my Win10 machine. – Rasky Jan 13 '17 at 14:10
