RSAT on Windows 8.1 won't install

Hi Experts!
It has been a while since my last time asking a question; I'm currently setting a brand new laptop on which I installed Windows 8.1 Pro 64 bits (it is a Volume License), and I'm hitting a nag with the installation of RSAT.

This is the scenario:
When I run the "Windows8.1-KB2693643-x64.msu" (downloaded from the MS website), it runs for a while and comes with "The following updates were not installed: Update for Windows (KB2693643)" (see screenshot "update-error"). The details pulled from the Updates History says:
Update for Windows (KB2693643)
Installation date: ?2/?26/?2014 8:26 AM
Installation status: Failed
Error details: Code 80092004
Update type: Important
More information:


I have checked that the language pack being used and being the primary is en-us (see screenshot "languajes").

I run the "Windows Update Troubleshooter" and it came with a message that it could not fix the latest failed update errors. I've search for a couple of days now for a solution but I have found none; I even tried to decompress the pack and install it manually, but no dice.
For extra info I have attached a screenshot of the windows features installed on the PC so far.

Any suggestions on how to troubleshoot this?
Thanks,

You are sure you have have Windows 8.1 Pro?
Which version of RSAT are you attempting to install?
Have you tried disabling your AV?

The en-US language pack needs to be added prior to installing RSAT.

Have you tried this:
-                Download the Windows 8 Language Pack ISO file (RSAT page links to MSDN, I downloaded it from TechNet)
-                Double-click the downloaded file in Windows Explorer.
-                Navigate to langpacks\en-us, or langpacks\(supported RSAT language).
-                Copy the file lp.cab to a local folder.
-                In a Command Prompt or Windows PowerShell session, run lpksetup.exe.
-                In the Setup wizard, select Install display languages.
-                Browse to the location where you saved lp.cab in step 4. Click OK, and then click Next in the Setup wizard.
-                Review and accept the end-user license terms, and then click Next.
-                When the language pack installation is complete, verify that the language pack is installed by running get-windowspackage -online in a Windows PowerShell session that has been started with elevated user rights (Run as Administrator).
-                The language pack entry starts with the following:
-                Microsoft-Windows-Client-LanguagePack-Package~(GUID)~(architecture)~(supported language)~6.2.9200.16384


Also try to fully update the machine (WinUpdate) and reboot before installing RSAT.

Hi PowerEdgeTech,
That was a quick response; thanks.
To answer your questions:
Yes, I have Windows 8.1 Pro (see attached screenshot).
I'm trying to install RSAT for Windows 8.1 (see screenshot of MS website); the file for 64 bits systems is "Windows8.1-KB2693643-x64.msu".
There is no AV installed.

Thanks,

Hi TobiasHolm,
Thank you for answering so quick; doesn't the provided screenshot with the languages pack installed proves that the en-US language pack in indeed installed? When I run get-windowspackage -online from a PS window I get:

Package Identity : Microsoft-Windows-Client-LanguagePack-Package~31bf3856ad364e35~amd64~en-US~6.3.9600.16384
State            : Installed
Release Type     : LanguagePack
Install Time     : 9/30/2013 3:50:00 PM


All updates have been applied and the laptop rebooted.

Sorry ... I know you posted "pro" originally ... just wanted to make sure :)

Have you run through all the Microsoft updates available?  None are listed as required for RSAT, but I wonder if one is needed.  

I just installed RSAT on 8.1 last week (forgetting it won't work with 2003 :)), and there were no issues at all, but mine was fully updated before attempting to install it.  Otherwise, I'm drawing a blank as to what would cause it to fail.

Adequate disk space?

@PowerEdgeTech,

No worries, better sure than sorry.
All updates are applied (except MS Silverlight and Bing Desktop) ; disk space is plenty, more than 20GB free.
Thanks,

Go it solved!
After a couple of days without any more input on this issue, I decided to take the plunge and do a full re-install. I installed from the same CD and only applied drivers and MS updates.
Then downloaded the RSAT again and it installed without any issues.
Thanks to all that shimmed in.

It was not ideal to re-install; wish there was an explanation for why it would not install.
