  • Hello, Thank you for your post.
    I’ve just made all steps and still i cannot see it in the Windows Features:(
    I will just mention that I installed RSAT on Windows 8 and there was no problem.
    Maybe you have an idea what can be the reason?

    Patch installed at least 3 times, system restarted as well.

    Thank you in advance.
