The WindowsFeature or Role Resource built in to Desired State Configuration is available on all OSes with WMF 4.0 but the provider uses the ServerManager module and its *-WindowsFeature cmdlets in its implementation meaning that it does not work on Client OSes (ie Windows 7 and 8.1).

Our developers use Client SKUs and have environments running locally during dev. We would like to use the same scripts for setting up and maintaining developer machines and test servers

Very disappointed that this only works on servers. I need desired state on client machines also for my developers, testers, QA, etc

Like pretty much every developer anywhere, I have a copy of our web stack running on a client OS for dev purposes. Scripting both our dev stacks and server stacks is essential.
