I have patiently and faithfully reinstalled Remote Server Administration tools (RSAT) on my Windows 10 (pro) Workstation after each feature update (and Early Release build), but now it's partially broken and I'd like to do a clean reinstall, but:
- if I try to remove the existing RSAT
- kb2693643 is not visible in control / programs / View Installed Updates
c:\> WUSA /uninstall /kb:2693643finds the update and starts uninstalling, but fails at the end with Access Denied. Same error in Safe Mode with no networking.
- if I try to install RSAT, I get error "this update is already installed on this computer"
This is Windows 10 Pro Ver 1709, RSAT KB2693643.
I'm down this road because e.g, DHCP works, but DNS does not... I could probably cobble something together with files from another machine, but I'd have more confidence in a tool I depend on every day if I could do a normal install.
Can anyone suggest a hack that would make RSAT appear uninstalled so the regular installer would try to work?
WUSA does not have an appropriate option.
