You’re running Vista 32 or 64 bit and you don’t have remote administration tools such as terminal services manager, DNS manager etc.
Adminpak.msi no longer ships in the c:\windows\system32\ directory for Windows 2008.
Install remote server administration tools (RSAT) from Microsoft.
Step 1 – Download and install the proper version of the remote server administration tools.
