HOWTO install Windows features on-demand

Starting with Windows 10 1809, I discovered that RSAT (Remote Server Adminitration Toolkit) was inserted into Windows ‘Features on Demand’ and can be only installed from there.

To complete to the task:

  • open a Command Prompt with administrative access rights
  • type the following command line to get all features available:

dism /online /get-capabitities

  • select the needed ones (the ones starting with “rsat” in your case)
  • for each one, type the following command line:

dism /online /add-capability /capabilityname:<name>

It will start to download and install the requested capability.


To uninstall one, you can use the following command line:

dism /online /remove-capability /capabilityname:<name>
