If you want to install Active Directory on Microsoft Windows 7, you need to download and install Remote Server Administration Tools for Windows 7. It works on Microsoft Windows 7 with or without Service Pack 1 but much better if you have Service Pack 1. You can download Service Pack 1 from Windows 7 Service Pack 1.

Once Remote Server Administration Tools has been installed, click “Start”, “All Programs”, “Accessories”, right-click “Command Prompt”, and select “Run as administrator” to run it with elevated privileges. When you are prompted with UAC pop-up, select “Yes”. In the command prompt, run the following commands in order:

  • dism /online /enable-feature /featurename:RemoteServerAdministrationTools
  • dism /online /enable-feature /featurename:RemoteServerAdministrationToolsRoles
  • dism /online /enable-feature /featurename:RemoteServerAdministrationToolsRoles-AD
  • dism /online /enable-feature /featurename:RemoteServerAdministrationToolsRoles-AD-DS
  • dism /online /enable-feature /featurename:RemoteServerAdministrationToolsRoles-AD-DS-SnapIns

You should see something like in the image above when executing the command. These commands are required to enable all prerequisite features and the “Users and Computers”. When the activation commands are completed, you should be able to find “Active Directory Users and Computers” in “Administrative Tools” in the Control Panel.
