How to Install GPMC on Server 2008, 2008 R2, and Windows 7 (via RSAT)

Happy Holidays! 

 This is the Group Policy present you've been asking for : a step by step video of how to install the GPMC using a GUI or a commandline from Jeremy Moskowitz, one of our fantastic MVPs!

Jeremy also walks you through how to install the GPMC (Group Policy Management Console) using RSAT (Remote Server Administration Tools) for Windows 7.

One note: he mentions getting the GPMC for Windows Server 2008 and 2008 R2; those are 2 different GPMC's. The 2008 GPMC will not have all of the same settings that 2008 R2 / Windows 7 has. If you have moved up to R2 / Windows 7, the Group Policy team strongly recommends only managing GPO's from the R2 / Windows 7 version of the GPMC. Remember, you only need one Windows 7 client to get the newer GPMC!
