I’m trying to install Telnet but the “Turn Windows features on or off” is blank.
 
 
 
 
 
To install Telnet Client on Windows 7 or Windows Vista.

       Click Start, and then click Control Panel. On the Control Panel Home page, click Programs. In the Programs and Features section, click Turn Windows features on or off. If the User Account Control dialog box appears, confirm that the action it displays is what you want, and then click Continue. In the Windows Features list, select Telnet Client, and then click OK.

If you want , you can also use other software to do telnet to other server i.e. putty.

You may have to perform an in-place upgrade (that is a repair install).

Like aadih says.
But for a workaround: simply copy telnet.exe from another machine into c:\windows, there is nothing more needed.

Like Neil40m said you should just download putty. Here is a link:

Super simple tool that has a lot of other features built in!
