If you are a windows domain administrator, Microsoft “Remote Server Administration Tools for Windows 8.1” would be a perfect companion which will assist you to carryout a major chunk of domain related activities without leaving the comfort of your chair, from a Windows 8.1 client box!
Please note each version of Windows client (starting from Windows 7) requires platform supported update package from Microsoft for the installation, thus, you cannot download the remote administration package for Windows7 or Windows 8 and expect to get it installed on Windows 8.1
Further, You must have US English language installed (Keyboard language is not enough, less said). You must download and install the language pack before installing the remote administration update package.
You must run the Windows Update and make sure your box is patched with latest updates, to avoid any possible installation failures
