How to install AD Management Tools in Win 8

I am setting up a windows 8 machine and need to install the AD Tools to manage Server 2008 Domain Controllers ?
But, i am kind of lost
I downloaded this file Windows6.2-KB2693643-x64.msu but it pops up a window "Windows Update Standalone Installer The Update is not applicable to your computer"


the link above is for windows 8; there is a separate download for 8.1

Remote Server Administration Tools for Windows 8.1

the download is Windows8.1-KB2693643-x64.msu not Windows6.2-KB2693643-x64.msu

Download and install RSAT

There is an x86 and an x64 version, you should choose the correct one but your Windows version.

How to determine whether a computer is running a 32-bit version or 64-bit version of the Windows operating system.

I did that Walter but i have that issue i mentioned. Thanks

In some other sites suggest to do this

Extract the package files
expand -f:* "Windows6.2-KB2693643-x64.msu" D:RSAT

and then run
pkgmgr /ip /

Are you using at least Windows 8.x Pro? You can't install any AD stuff on the core versions of Windows 8.x (not can you join it to an AD domain).

@rindi: my version is Windows 8. Version 6.3 Build 9600 and i think it is Windows 8.1 Pro
@Walter: Executed the commands and what.....

thanks for your help
