The Debugging tools for Windows (a.k.a. Windbg) for Windows 8.1 can still be downloaded separately. Although it's now part of the Windows Driver Kit (WDK), you can still download the Windows 8.1 SDK Installer and select only the debugging tools. It's an about 180MB download (without the symbols).
The NETLOGON folder is in fact a subfolder of the SYSVOL directory. Unless this location is changed, you can find it here:

When performing RDS shadowing, by default, the user whose session is being shadowed has to consent to viewing and/or controlling his/her session. This behaviour can be changed with a group policy.
In your group policy (local or through domain), navigate to:
Computer Configuration\Policies\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Remote Desktop Services\Remote Desktop Session Host\Connections
Find the policy called Set rules for remote control of Remote Desktop Services user sessions and configure it:
By default, only users with local admin rights on an RDS server can do session shadowing on that server.
To allow a particular user or group to allow shadowing, run this from a command prompt on the RDS server:
wmic /namespace:\\root\CIMV2\TerminalServices PATH Win32_TSPermissionsSetting WHERE (TerminalName="RDP-Tcp") CALL AddAccount "domain\group",2
In the command, replace domain\group with settings of your own. It's recommended to create a group specific for the job (e.g. RDS Shadowing) so you can run this command only once, and then add users to the group to allow them to shadow.
Before installing ROK licenses on your virtual machines on VMware, be sure to allow SMBios reflection of the host to the VM's. Otherwise, authorization will fail with a This system is unsupported message.

SMBIOS.reflectHost = TRUE
By default, when using a Telenet address on your smartphone, the Telenet mailserver (uit.telenet.be will not accept messages if they're not sent from within the Telenet network (e.g. when using Proximus, Mobistar or some other ISP or cellular operator).
You can resolve the issue by adding SMTP authentication to your outgoing mailserver settings. Simply add your username and password, and you will be able to send mail using Telenet SMTP.
