    RSAT - No Remote Desktops

    Evening All,

    Recently got my new Work Desktop (Quad Core, 4GB RAM, Win 7 Pro x64) and have completed the migration from my old (Very Old) XP Box and have noticed that the Remote Desktops Tool isn't included in the RSAT. I believe it wasn't available in the Vista Version either and have done a quick google (site:edugeek.net of course) and found that it is possible to patch the old XP version to work on Vista. So this leave me with 2 Questions if someone will oblige.

    1) Is there any chance that we might see this tool released again?

    2) if not, and I manage to get the old AdminPak.msi to work on my win7 Machine, will it be using RDP v6+ because my PC is running that version or is it going to be a security risk?

    I hope it isnt Game Over for the Remote Desktops Tool, This thing saved me lots of time (in tiny doses of course but they add up!). Anyone got it working?

    OK, I checked it out again this morning, seems I just completely missed that feature in the Turn Windows Features on/off window. Thanks for the headsup, I will go and crawl behind a rock in shame now....
