To add the Dial-in properties tab, copy the following files from a Windows 2012 R2 x64 server to the Windows 8 or Windows 8.1 Desktop.

C:\Windows\System32\mprsnap.dll

003-Active-Directory-Users-and-Computers-ADUC

C:\Windows\System32\rasuser.dll

004-Active-Directory-Users-and-Computers-ADUC

C:\Windows\System\rtrfiltr.dll

005-Active-Directory-Users-and-Computers-ADUC

C:\Windows\System32\en-US\mprsnap.dll.mui

006-Active-Directory-Users-and-Computers-ADUC

C:\Windows\System32\en-US\rasuser.dll.mui

007-Active-Directory-Users-and-Computers-ADUC

C:\Windows\System32\en-US\rtrfiltr.dll.mui

008-Active-Directory-Users-and-Computers-ADUC

Once you have copied the files to your desktop, then copy the files to the appropriate C:\Windows\System32 or C:\Windows\System32\en-US folder.

Open the Command Prompt with Administrative rights type the following command (See figure 3).

regsvr32.exe rasuser.dll

If you have either ADAC or ADUC open you will need to close and reopen the tools.  The Dial in Tab is now available in the user property in both the Active Directory Administrative Center (See figure 5) and the Active Directory Users and Computers (See figure 6).
