When you walk through the add a computer wizard in sbs 2003, it asks what client apps you want to install.  they include ie 6 and outlook sp1.

what are you supposed to do when the machine already has ie 7 and office 2003 sp2?

if you don't have the client apps installed, the default home page of ie7 does not seem to change to companyweb and it does not configure outlook for exchange as part of the wizard.

are you supposed to not install these older client apps and set homepage and exchange settings manually?

Or how do you have sbs give out the client apps - outlook sp2 and ie 7?

this server does not have R2.  would having R2 installed make any difference?

thanks!

Just assign those apps normally.  If the machine has them - or newer versions - already, then it won't install them.

Eventually, the updates will be added to SBS's automatic deployment.  For now, as leew stated, you should still include the previous versions in your client computer deployment.  This way, when the updates are installed into SBS, then your workstation will stay updated.

Installing R2 WOULD have a difference because R2 includes a special version of Windows Software Update Service that keeps all applications on all clients updated.
