Dial-in tab missing in windows 7 RSAT(remote server administration toolkit) Sollution. VPN and remote access snap in

  It's observed from Microsoft that they have no update or patch for adding dial-in tab in ADUC when we use remote server administration toolkit in windows7. They are suggestion us to use dsa.msc as a remote application as a remedy.

But i know that we don't like that workaround.  After a bit research I've added dial-in tab to ADUC with RSAT in windows 7. Let see that workaround.

The solution is simple, you just need to copy two files from your DC, paste those files to respective places and register that file.

     If you are using windows 7 32 bit, find a DC in your domain with windows server 2008 32 bit, copy rasuser.dll from c:\windows\system32 and paste it to c:\windows\system32 in your windows 7 computer.

    Then find rasuser.dll.mui from c:\windows\system32\en-us of your DC and paste it to
c:\windows\system32\en-us of your windows 7 computer.

    Run command prompt with admin previleges, and type regsvr32 rasuser.dll and hit enter. That's it you are done. Open your AUDC and you will find dial in tab on your objects properties.

For 64 bit windows 7 users, the procedure remains same except you will have to copy those files from a DC with windows server 2008 64 bit .

If you are unable find those files for 64 bit simply download it from below links and paste it.

For 64 bit

Hope this helps.

Not the original Anonymous -
Could you provide the solution to error reported (The module "rasuser.dll failed to load)?
I followed the steps for Windows 7 64-bit. Took file from a W2K8 Svr R2 Std SP1 64-bit.
The error mentions something about checking for problems with the binary or dependent .DLL files.

For anyone who happens to come across this page, for x64 users, the instructions above will only work if, IN ADDITION to the two rasuser files above, you ALSO copy the following files from Win Server 2008 R2 to their respective locations on Win 7 x64:


Once you've copied ALL of the files above, in addition to the two rasuser files, THEN manually registering rasuser.dll on Windows 7 x64 will work (and you'll get your Dial-In tab in ADUC). Hope this helps!
