Remote Server Administration Tools Released for Windows Vista SP1 (Hurray!)

Ned here – this is a quick post that can’t wait for the Microsoft.com machine to spin up. 🙂

After you install this, open Control Panel and start Programs and Features. Click Turn Windows Features on or off then scroll down to the Remote Server Administration Tools. From there you can turn on everything, certain things, or… nothing. Your call, unlike the old ADMINPAK.MSI…
