    For the life of me I can not figure out why I can not install Windows SP1 Admin tools on my machine. I do not get any errors they just are not installed when I am done. I must be reading the instructions wrong. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    You haven't answered which version of windows 7 you have

    if you don't have Enterprise, Professional, or Ultimate then it won't appear. It will look like it installs but it doesn't

    did you download the right version of the file for you
    you want
    Windows6.1-KB958830-x64-RefreshPkg.msu

    did you do step 3 to 10 to get them to be available
    especially step 7, where if you don't select any tools in that list, nothing will appear & step 10 to get them to appear on start menu

    click on the plus sign beside the rsat entry & then it opens up with a list
    select everything in that list for now. then you can carry on
    it is likely that you only have the help files installed
