    I just installed this update on my RTM 8.1 machine with no issues.

    I can confirm, this does in fact work. The tools report as build 9431 but appear to be functional.

    Also I can confirm that the Remote Desktops thingie I threw together for Windows 8 also works for Windows 8.1 RTM.

    Again I will ask the question I have been asking since Windows Vista days. Since all the RSAT tools already exist in the Server build, why aren't they also included in the Client build, ready to be selected in the Features wizard? Instead we have to find and download a huge hotfix.
